Law Firm

We offer retained and contingency search services to our law firm clients for the following types of positions:


Associate Placement

The Trense Group takes a relationship approach to associate placement. We eschew quantity in favor of quality. Hiring Partners and Recruiting Coordinators prefer working with the Trense Group because of our refreshingly different approach. Rather than making the job of the hiring authority more difficult, at the Trense Group we make it easier by limiting our submissions to only those candidates who are a good fit for the position.


Partner or practice group placement

Because our leadership team consists of former practicing attorneys, the Trense Group understands how to match partners and practice groups to law firms appropriately. This matching requires understanding the discipline specific expertise involved.

It also entails balancing the financial benefits of the arrangement with less tangible considerations such as client and colleague compatibility.

Trense Group recruiters will perform due diligence to determine the following information for you as necessary:

  • portable business
  • revenue per lawyer
  • hours billed
  • billing rates
  • working attorney credits
  • realization rates
  • direct and adverse party conflicts
  • compensation expectations
