April 15, 2015 – Executive search firm Parker + Lynch has launched Parker + Lynch Legal, a division dedicated to legal executive recruitment. In light of this specialized approach, Parker + Lynch's sister organization, Special Counsel, a provider of legal staffing and recruiting services, aligned its attorney search division with Parker + Lynch Legal earlier this month. "The legal profession, and in particular, the attorney search facet of it, has always been a highly competitive atmosphere where the majority of candidates are passive,” said Amanda Ellis, vice president of search. “Our knowledge of the industry landscape is unparalleled; as a result, we know how to align a candidate's experience with an employer's desires—that's why the majority of offers to our candidates are accepted, a vital factor when it comes to being a consultative partner to our clients as they work to advance their business capabilities." Parker + Lynch specializes in placing senior-level executives and professionals in the accounting, finance, legal and legal technology sectors.
