Professional Networks

Our recruiters have more than 35 years of combined search industry experience. This experience has produced established relationships with the area’s leading attorneys. Whether it’s moderating a panel at which our clients are speakers, providing our clients with access to New York’s finest sporting events, or hosting an intimate client-only networking gathering, the firm’s commitment to the constant cultivation of this network augments our market knowledge and enhances our ability to make enduring placements. It also reflects why we are retained on an exclusive basis on many of our assignments.

Client-driven Search

Many of our competitors focus on “candidate-driven” searches in which a recruiter connects with a top credentialed attorney and shops a résumé to different law firms. At ML&C, we focus on “client-driven” searches. On these time-sensitive searches, ML&C is hired exclusively to identify hard-to-find candidates. Using a creative and unorthodox methodology, ML&C has been successful in filling these searches. As a result, ML&C has placed attorneys in niche practice areas like leveraged finance, environmental, securities class actions, matrimonial, landlord-tenant, insurance coverage, gaming, factoring, energy, and high yield finance.
