Scenario: A West Michigan law firm engaged Legal Office Staffing to conduct a search for an experienced corporate paralegal. Our client had unsuccessfully cunducted their own search and sought out Legal Office Staffing to help identify a solution. Because the firm had experienced two retirements in the past year, it was necessary to start rebuilding and develop a new core team. The challenge was to provide an experiened paralegal with a strong corporate background, the ability to work in a deadline driven environment supporting multiple attorneys, and to get up to speed quickly without the benefit of an existing mentor.
Result: The Legal Office Staffing team developed a unique recruiting plan and applied our strong relationships with the Michigan paralegal community to identify a suitable candidate. Our paralegal brought demonstrated experience through previous corporate work with a national law firm and an international corporation. In less than 30 days, Legal Office Staffing had successfully placed an exceptional candidate with the firm, adding an important new component to the corporate support team.
