The Partners Group and Legalpeople recently attended the National Association of Legal Professionals (NALP) Annual Education Conference in Chicago. I was joined by my colleagues, Cristina Leon, Jim Kosciolek, Bill Colman, Carrie Antonopoulos, and Allen Rein as exhibitors at this year’s event held at the Sheraton in Downtown Chicago. This year’s conference had a record breaking number of attendees, including law school and law firm recruiting professionals from across the country and abroad. The NALP Kickoff Happy Hour we hosted for our VIP clients was an overwhelming success – we were able to spend quality time with some of our closest clients from Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., just to name a few places! I also had the opportunity to attend some of the conference sessions, specifically a lateral recruiting and hiring session focused on how to better evaluate candidates, and a second session focused on how technology is changing the legal recruiting process for recruiters and employers.

Thank you NALP for making us feel welcome as inaugural exhibitors, and we look forward to attending next year’s conference in Boston!
