Our Legal Recruiters
The Evers Legal Search recruiting team brings over 40 combined years of in-house legal recruiting experience to corporate law departments nationwide. Led by Mike Evers, our legal recruiters are ready to handle your most difficult assignments. If you represent a Fortune 1000 company conducting a national General Counsel search, a growing start-up company in need of its first in-house attorney, or a legal department trying to fill a staff position requiring specialized industry experience, our recruiters know how to proactively reach and engage and right candidates for your company. Here are the bios for our legal recruiters:
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 over 150 attorneys into positions with corporate legal departments over a seventeen year career in executive search. He started this firm in 1997.
Mike received his JD from Duke University School of Law and practiced as an employment law associate with AmLaw 100 firm Blank Rome. He received his undergraduate degree from Indiana University. Mike was raised in New Jersey and moved to Chicago in 1991. 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. Mike spends one evening per week as a Home Helper with SOS Children's Village.
Meredith has been recruiting in-house attorneys to corporate legal departments for over 20 years. Meredith worked for two national executive search firms from 1979 to 1988, but she saw the potential of specializing in legal search and opened her own practice in 1988 to focus on attorney placement. She joined forces with Mike Evers in 1999. Meredith was an early board member and long-term leader of the National Association of Legal Search Consultants, the not-for-profit educational and regulatory body that promotes ethical recruiting standards.
Meredith received her Bachelor of Arts in Education from Arcadia University in 1973. She lives with her husband Chris in Evanston, Illinois.
