My partner Shannan Rahman of our Atlanta office was a panelist this week at a luncheon hosted by the Atlanta Legal Recruitment Association (ALRA). The luncheon was held at King & Spalding and focused on lateral hiring from the perspective of legal search firm consultants, career services professionals, and law firm recruiters. The ALRA is a professional development organization for legal recruitment professionals from law firms located in the Atlanta metropolitan area. During the event, Shannan discussed the factors that lateral candidates consider when deciding to transition law firms. Such factors include firm/practice group culture, compensation, professional development and mentorship opportunities, partnership potential, and the ever increasing focus on work/life balance. The Partners Group is proud to be a friend of ALRA and looks forward to participation in their future events.
