Contract and Project Attorneys



West Highland Placement and Connect Staffing also is your go-to resource for attorney, paralegal and other staffing needs - whether large projects involving complex commercial litigation or one attorney with subject-matter expertise to fill in for a practice group need, whether short or long-term. We seamlessly provide the highest quality legal industry professionals for contract assignments, on demand, 24-7.

Our personnel are experienced, efficient, and effective. We offer a variety of talent - attorneys in all practice areas and often legal support personnel such as IT professionals, paralegals, administrative assistants, billing personnel, marketing specialists, human resource department staff, e-discovery experts and other management - for as many or as few hours as you might need.

Whether for days, weeks or months, we can staff your projects with personnel who are looking for contract work. And if you want to hire one of our contractors, we offer preferential rates to facilitate the process. When your need is complete - no layoffs, no severance issues - you just tell us and our professionals move on to their next assignment.

We offer our clients:

  • Top talent with no commitment
  • Cost containment through management of resources
  • Relief from HR responsibilities
  • The benefit of pre-screening of resumes by highly experienced attorneys
  • Opportunity to try out legal personnel before a permanent hire

Just like the recruiting conglomerates, we can staff any project, no matter how large, including document reviews and e-discovery teams, on or off-site. For those clients who are streamlining due to the economic downturn, we provide a cost-effective alternative to permanent placements. We handle payroll and all administrative responsibilities associated with your project staffing. Everything can be in place in a matter of days. AND since our focus is on law, we understand what our clients need and only send the right resumes.

    In-House: Our pool of available in-house counsel candidates (many of whom have prior in-house experience) can help you on a part-time or full-time basis with everyday legal, business and risk management matters, working in your offices, directly with your management and staff, at the times and days desired. We also offer counsel to assist in one or more specialty areas, such as human resources, labor and employment, loan and real estate closings, environmental, corporate finance or litigation.

    Law Firms: All of our attorneys and staff are ready to assist with law firm needs, whether for a few days, a few months or indefinitely. We provide contract assistance in virtually any practice area, or any IT or staffing need, regardless of how specialized that need may be. All of our candidates have strong firm or in-house backgrounds and will be pre-screened for conflict issues. We can provide services onsite or off-site if space is a consideration.

Let us help you manage your practice AND your budget with just one call. Ask for a no-obligation consultation. We will be pleased to come to your offices to discuss our pool of qualified candidates, to analyze your particular needs, and to assess your potential cost savings through use of the West Highland network.
