Whether you are a partner seeking the best platform for your practice, a smaller firm practitioner seeking a larger firm, in-house counsel or an associate, J. Sheppard Associates’ model of engagement will work to your benefit. Our role with you as a strategic, trusted advisor, our market knowledge and firm assessment techniques will enable you to make informed decisions about your career choices moving forward.
J. Sheppard Associates, a division of DayBreak Legal Staffing, engages in the placement of Attorneys on a permanent and contract basis for its law firm and financial services clients with confidentiality. Whether you are a Partner looking to move your practice or group to a new situation, or a lateral Associate looking for that next great situation, J. Sheppard Associates can be an effective source for you to seek out and evaluate opportunities. Our combined 42 years of industry experience, along with a wide network of large, mid-size and boutique law firm contacts will provide you with a resourceful tool to engage the marketplace as you move your career forward.
As we move out of this latest recession, the law firm landscape has changed dramatically. In the past larger firms were considered a “safe haven” but our market research shows that is no longer the case. As a matter of fact, many Partners and their teams are moving to more mid-size and boutique firms in order to compete more effectively by offering flexible billing, while maintaining the highest standards in the quality of their legal work. Lateral Associates no longer seek out the largest firms for the best opportunities but, rather, seek to do meaningful work for clients instead of riding an extremely lengthy and political track to partnership. As we speak with firms about your candidacy, we will encourage them to think about your practice, and its integration with their businesses, for immediate and future success. The benefit to you will be tapping into a firm that wishes to outcompete everyone in your specialty for clients in the near future and in the long run.
As you engage with us, we will update you on any openings (you can click here now to view current job postings), industry trends and timelines, networking opportunities and general information to assist you in your search. Mindful that communication and confidentiality are of paramount importance in your search , please know that they are of utmost importance in our minds as well. Be assured that none of your materials or personal information will be submitted to any firm without your express prior approval and we will always have closure for you on any search we engage in for you.
