“I hire people brighter than me and then I get out of their way.” (Lee Iacocca)
Based on your legal staffing requirements, we search for suitable target candidates, reach out to them and support the process whereby you get to know each other. From the position of Senior Associate to a complete team, we enable you to reach candidates who don’t respond to classic job adverts.
With your vacancies in mind, we look through our extensive database for suitable candidates. After successfully identifying them, we forward you detailed personal profiles and you decide which candidates you would like to get to know better.
You have already identified one or several lawyers who make the shortlist, but you don’t want to carry out the initial meeting yourself. HOPP PSC takes care of the initial stage of contact with the lawyer(s) in question and subsequently carries out interviews. We will also happily support you in the further course of getting to know each other and negotiations. Direct contact is often established prior to legal search projects.
HOPP PSC offers you strategic advice on your merger plans: Together with your management, objectives are arranged in order of priority and potential candidates identified. We then discreetly and tentatively reach out to the managing partners and support you as you get to know each other. Thanks to many years’ experience in law firm management we know the criteria for successful mergers: Levels of turnover, profitability, remuneration system and market position are factors which are just as important as compatibility of your respective objectives, company culture, leadership and management style. These criteria must have been sufficiently evaluated beforehand to enable a merger to proceed seamlessly and be successful in the long-term.
Are you planning on opening an office in a new city and looking for a local agent to help? We’ll gladly assist you in an advisory role, assemble a legal team and together with partners take care of the whole infrastructure, starting with looking for and renting office space, sourcing paralegal staff and even buying furniture, IT equipment and coffee machines. We’ll hand over to you a ready-to-use law firm.
Professional coaching supports the successful integration of new lawyers in your practice and is simultaneously an expression of your particular appreciation of your new employees. Many office moves fail, which can become very expensive. One particular difficulty arises when the move simultaneously entails a change of role or the expansion of a current role, e.g. if someone becomes a partner or practice group manager with the move. We can support you in this.
