We partner with leading law firms, individual partners and groups on highly strategic and tailored initiatives to expand and acquire new business and markets.

The strength of our partner practice centers on the quality of our relationships and results in unparalleled access to the most sought after law firms and partners in the market.

Empire Search Partners employs a highly collaborative and bespoke strategy when representing individual partners and groups. A potential lateral move involves an incredibly difficult and complex decision, and we are committed to providing partners with the best market intelligence, guidance and representation possible. We work closely with partners in evaluating the market and the many factors that must be considered with respect to a lateral move, and leverage our experience and market-leading models to ensure that partners we represent will always put their best foot forward through every step of the partner recruitment process.

We take a similarly collaborative and strategic approach with our law firm clients to understand their needs from a macro and micro business, economic and cultural perspective. Our market knowledge is broad and deep, and we make sure that our law firm clients are the most informed and competitive in the industry.

We consistently partner with law firm management on highly targeted, retained and exclusive contingency-based searches.

We also work extensively with senior government attorneys looking to move into private practice and have made partner-level placements into law firms from numerous agencies, including the Securities and Exchange Commission, Office of the White House Counsel, Department of Justice, Southern District of New York, Eastern District of New York, Federal Energy Regulatory Agency, Commodities Future Trading Commission and the Environmental Protection Agency.

Empire Search Partners is a unified platform with a constant exchange of market intelligence and contacts between our law firm partner, government and in-house recruiting practices. There is no other legal search firm in the country that can offer law firms and law firm partners the level of access, insight and experience that we provide.
