Mike EversMike Evers

Mike is passionate about the in-house law department segment of the legal market.  He speaks frequently on the merits of an in-house career path and writes the monthly Career Advice column for InsideCounsel.  That’s why candidates listen when Mike calls to make that critical first impression on behalf of your company.  Mike has placed well over 200 attorneys into positions with corporate legal departments over a twenty year career in executive search.  He started this firm in 1997.

Mike received his JD from Duke University School of Law in 1990 and practiced as an employment law associate with AmLaw 100 firm Blank Rome.  He received his undergraduate degree from Indiana University.  In 2002, he graduated from The Second City Training Center improvisation program — that means he is a good listener.  Mike’s charitable board service has included the “Free the Children” scholarship organization and the youth Hostel based in Chicago.  He currently serves on the Board of theater company Stage 773.  Mike actively volunteers as a counselor and career workshop leader with United Latinos for Education Empowerment & Development (www.uleed.org).
