Years in Business

Focus. Experience. That’s expertise.

One can’t be an expert in everything. And one can’t become an expert overnight.

Since our inception in 1997, we’ve focused exclusively on one thing: Placing attorneys with corporate clients.

We give you the best of both worlds.

Evers Legal combines the best attributes of both legal search firms and executive search firms.

Legal Search Firms

Attract highly accomplished candidates but often don’t match your specific needs.

Nimble, Easy to Work With

  • Not bogged down by conflicts and red tape.
  • Tap their networks to find highly accomplished candidates.

Candidate Focus

  • Candidates in their network may not match your needs.
  • Lose motivation if your search becomes difficult.

Executive Search Firms

Professional consulting—but often frustrating processes

Slow, Long Time-to-fill

  • Inflexible on engagement terms and slowed by their structure.
  • Time-to-fill often ranges from 6–12 months.

Client Focus

  • Focus on client needs versus shopping candidates.
  • Thorough research and sourcing methodologies.

Evers Legal Search

Client focus and entrepreneurial approach yield the right placement quickly.

Results at Speed

  • Knowledgeable, energetic sourcing generates highly qualified candidates expeditiously.
  • See on‑point resumes in two weeks or less.

Rigorous Client Focus

  • Understands your business and corporate culture—in addition to position requirements.
  • Thorough sourcing approach leaves no stone unturned.
