I am pleased to have my colleague Meredith Haydon back and working with us again on a regular basis. As some of you may know, Meredith lost her husband Chris to cancer earlier this year and she took some time off. So this photo from a holiday party on Dec. 3 takes on special meaning for me. It also reflects our different styles. As Meredith would say, I’m the “schmoozer” with the big grin. And I’m always trying to get her to chill out more! Since 1999, our complementary strengths have served our clients well, and we look forward to more of the same in 2016. More

Evers Legal appreciates the opportunity to handle the search leading to Ronke’s placement.

Thank you to Meredith Ritchie and her fellow Board members for including me in yesterday’s Coalition of Women’s Initiatives in Law event. The largely law firm oriented audience seized on client access and origination credit as a key driver towards improved inclusion and advancement for women at major firms.
Of course, I always find the in-house attorneys at any legal conference. The photo here is with Cynthia Abbott, the stellar Chief Litigation Counsel for Motorola Mobility. More
If you have had a good experience with our search firm and believe your law department might benefit from using us in the future, I have a request. Regardless if your company is currently hiring, please introduce me to your key internal contact in human resources.
It is increasingly rare for a general counsel to independently engage a search consultant to fill an important opening in his or her department. On the front end of a new opening, HR often leads on the discussion of whether to even use a search firm. And when the company does authorize the use of a search firm, it is very helpful if a vendor relationship already exists with a firm that you and HR both feel good about using. More
Congratulations to my friend, and former client, Jeff Carr. Jeff is launching a new service offering, and I’ll talk about that in a moment. Jeff practiced the elusive art of prevention for 21 years as the General Counsel of FMC Technologies. He might balk at my use of the word art, since Jeff is best known for his innovative use of technology in a law department context, and as an early champion of alternative fee arrangements. But as I wrote about here when Jeff “retired” last year, I believe Jeff’s judgment and leadership skills were essential for any of that innovation to take hold. And in my opinion those same people skills will be Jeff’s true calling card as he moves into a service provider role.
Jeff is creating a “prevention practice” at law firm Valorem Law Group under the moniker “ValoremNext.” I suspect Jeff’s advice and counsel will be uniquely valuable to new GCs, or laterally placed GCs who seek a partner on a change management undertaking. I’ll find out more on Jeff’s upcoming road show. He has created a complimentary one hour program for in-house attorneys, to be held in Houston (Oct 28), Chicago (Nov. 12), and Silicon Valley (Nov. 17). For more information or to register, email Jeff: Jeffrey.email@example.com
