Adding Value: Evers eNews brings valuable insights to the in-house bar

Mike 2014 PR shot 2Welcome to Evers eNews, a monthly bulletin designed to add value for you and your law department.

The phrase “add value” smacks of sales-speak and business school class. But I embrace it. Recruiting is an episodic enterprise, so we try our best here to help clients in the months or even years that pass between search assignments. We hope that small things, such as complimentary benchmarking and invitations to special events, make a difference. This is why the signature line in our email reads, “How can we help your law department?” I continuously challenge our firm internally with that question. More
