The 2017 Most Influential Recruiters Ranking List Q & A Section

What kind of legal recruitment firms are found on the list?
The 2017 Most Influential Legal Recruiters List features 250 legal employment agencies. These are the best legal recruitment agencies in terms of influence in America. Unlike the previously offered directory of legal recruiters or the database of legal recruiters provided by other sources, we provide a ranking of the most influential legal staffing agencies. Although we include legal staffing agencies that place attorneys, paralegals, and legal assistants, we only rank the legal placing agencies that focus solely on the law in terms of the legal recruitment firm's website.
Which legal recruitment agencies are the most influential?

Influence extends beyond a legal staffing agency to the legal recruiters ability to reach candidates. The most influential legal recruiters are the legal placement services that candidates are most likely to encounter. Additionally, when an employer wants to hire an attorney, generally, an employer seeks out the best legal recruiters with the influence to reach the candidates. The influence ranking is determined by a number of factors, which are discussed in detail in a separate article.


How did LawCrossing create the legal employment agency ranking list?

After analyzing 250 legal recruitment agencies across the United States, LawCrossing put together the 2017 Most Influential Legal Recruiter List in America based on a series of criteria. We ranked each legal placement firm's level of influence by utilizing more than 20 weighted factors. After months of research, we finalized the factors. The factors vary from the number of years the legal recruitment agency has operated to the use of social media.

Legal Recruiter

As a legal recruiter, it is the individual's job to look for legal recruits and place them at some of the best law firms in the country. The legal recruiter as a person believes that the stronger they know the recruit; the better it is for both. This is because they are more effective in helping them with their needs as they love the profession and enjoy working with and even helping people.

Many a legal recruiter have even left practicing law and have joined legal recruitment full time, because they prefer talking to their fellow attorneys regarding their careers. They even help take care of personal issues they are facing. Legal recruiters are passionate about talking to people. This is why they want to know your professional story.

We recommend that you meet your legal recruiter in person. Make it a point to meet the recruiter in case you are in the same town or city as they are. A face-to-face meeting can highly increase the chances of your success in case things move smoothly from there. This makes it more conducive to develop a stronger as well as overall successful client-recruiter relationship that further yields excellent results. LawCrossing's recruiter ranking list will help you move your legal career forward.
