Attorney Recruiting Services


WEST HIGHLAND PLACEMENT recruiters provide professional services based on personal knowledge of the expectations and culture of our law firm and corporate clients. We get to know our candidates and discuss in detail their skills and training, their long-range goals, their lifestyle expectations and their market potential. We then work thoughtfully, thoroughly and, of course, confidentially to make the right placements not just any placement.

West Highland assists clients and candidates with:

  • Recruiting Lateral Partners (with and without books of business)
  • Practice Group Moves
  • Firm Mergers/Acquisitions
  • Lateral Associate Recruiting (all levels and practice areas)
  • Outplacements
