GLS New Team Member™

A world class hire that can start tomorrow

The Problem

You need to hire a new in-house legal resource. The recruitment process is slow, expensive and does not always result in a great hire.  

Related challenges include:  

  • the hiring process further depletes the already limited capacity of your in-house team
  • a bad hire can be extremely disruptive to your existing team and impact your ecosystem
  • even with a good hire, paying a recruiter 20-25% of annual salary is outrageous
  • candidates that look good on paper and interview may still fail to perform once hired
  • even if you find the ideal candidate, you may still have to wait out their notice period
  • removing bad hires comes at a significant cost in terms of time, energy and dollars
  • the value-add proposition of a recruiter is tenuous at best

Wouldn’t it be great if that perfect lawyer could walk into your office tomorrow morning, stay for as long or as short as you like – all without you having to pay a legal recruiter? Now they can.
