Seasoned partner-level legal recruiter, Adam S, Weiss, shines a spotlight on lateral recruiting in this first-of-its-kind tell-all book, "The Lateral Lawyer".
In this eye-opening actionable guide, "The Lateral Lawyer: Opportunities and Pitfalls for the Law Firm Partner Switching Firms," Adam reveals the inside scoop on why the lateral recruiting process is so complicated, often to the detriment of lawyers, and firms. He answers crucial questions you didn't even know you should be asking!
" . . . Some firms have extraordinarily stable partnerships and others—I won’t name names—seem to have revolving doors, at least at times. From thousands of interactions, something has become clear to me: most prospective lateral partners—and even some firm-side hiring committee members and staff—are unfamiliar with the way that the lateral recruiting process works on an industry-wide basis." Questions answered in the book include:
Why is it a mistake to play "hard to get"?
How does a recruiter help you maintain a superior negotiating poster?
What are the top 6 questions you will probably be asked during interviews?
What should you ask during interviews?"
Whether you are a law firm partner, a member of firm recruiting staff, a professional recruiter, or a young attorney thinking about the future of your career, "The Lateral Lawyer" is an essential tool for understanding the lateral recruiting process.
Written by seasoned legal recruiter Adam S. Weiss, the book offers concrete advice and uses real-life scenarios to demonstrate how to receive the best possible lateral offers by creating the perfect market that makes firms compete for your practice.
