Legal Staffing & Recruitment Services We Offer
Our legal professionals and recruiters have decades of experience in attracting and managing top talent for law firms and legal teams. We handle all levels of experience, including:
- Senior and Junior Partners
- General Counsel
- Associate Attorneys
- Paralegals and Administrative Staff
Our specialized search process is centered on our state of the art proprietary database of active and passive candidates looking for a new challenge in their careers. We have a robust network of professional relationships built on decades of legal and recruiting industry experience to most effectively navigate the high-quality talent marketplace.
We understand the time and commitment necessary to make quality hiring decisions. Whether as Senior Partner or a chief legal administrator, we work with you to reduce the burdens of searching, interviewing and negotiating by proactively engaging with your team to better understand the company’s culture and business objectives. Through active preparation and understanding, we are able to ensure the right people and the right fit for the organization’s long-term success.
Perhaps you have a need for subject matter expertise but only for a finite period or project. Maybe you need a paralegal to help during a busy rush, but don’t need to add a permanent hire to your team. Or you’re interested in expanding a particular practice or service offering but aren’t sure of its long-term prospects. Maybe an important client seeks help on a matter where you don’t quite have the expertise or bench strength but otherwise could manage yourself instead of farming it out to a potential competitor.
We work to identify and align your specific needs with our pool of specialized legal talent. We have a host of highly skilled and experienced practitioners in a variety of disciplines who can fit well within the culture and operation of your team, but without the full time salaries, benefits and incidental costs associated with direct-hire placements.
We provide customized and cost effective solutions for document reviews, e-discovery and other special projects to help law firms and in-house legal teams maximize productivity and profitability. Our network of pre-screened experienced professionals allows us to respond rapidly and quickly assemble high-quality document review/e-discovery teams to satisfy our client’s immediate demands.
Our clients range from large national law firms to mid-size and smaller teams in need of e-discovery expertise, document review skills or other legal support for complex litigation, regulatory compliance, and due diligence transactions among a host of other specialized assignments.
Specialized project/contract assignments may include:
- Document Review

Questions Commonly Asked By Employers
What is your process for identifying/screening candidates?
We provide a consultative approach to identify our clients’ business objectives and requirements. We maintain a state of the art database of active and passive candidates. We connect with our candidates through a variety of confidential pre-screening efforts including in-person and video conference interviews to ensure qualified and committed candidates before submitting names and/or resumes to our clients.
How do you charge for your services?
Direct hire recruiting is done on a contingency basis. We are paid only upon achieving quality outcomes on your behalf. For contract and/or project based assignments using attorneys, paralegals and others employed by MLS, we charge a negotiated hourly bill rate. We offer a variety of customized billing options depending upon our clients’ specific needs.
What happens if we hire a temporary person and want to offer them a permanent position?
We offer all clients the option of converting temporary or part-time employees to permanent positions. Conversion options are a standard part of all services agreements and terms are negotiable based upon the employee, position and duration of employment.
What happens if we hire someone and it doesn't work out?
Our direct hire recruiting agreements allow for another search at no cost, if the candidate selected does not remain employed for at least six months.
Do you require an exclusive relationship for your services?
Although MLS welcomes the opportunity to be your sole recruiting resource, and/or retained search firm, we do not require an exclusive relationship. Searches are conducted on a contingency basis with no upfront costs or fees.
