Our law department clients in Chicagoland are once again showing an appetite for experienced commercial generalists with in-house experience who are open to working via our secondment service offering. In a nutshell, we pay better than ordinary “contract attorney” staffing firms in order to get the best available attorneys in this category. We are particularly interested in candidates who want to work in distant suburbs, such as Naperville to the west and Lake Forest to the north. Please send a resume and call us for a conversation about our non-traditional placement opportunities. A significant percentage of our secondments have turned into direct hire placements, although we can never guarantee that outcome.
