Associate Lateral Placement

After having a few years of experience under your belt, you are at a crucial moment in your career when you decide whether your current firm is a long-term fit for you. The market may be “hot” in your practice area, job opportunities are plentiful, and headhunters may be dangling the proverbial carrot in front of your nose with enticing job opportunities, but is the timing right for you to make a move?

As an attorney, making a strategic career move at the right time is crucial to your long term success. Is the grass that much greener? Will your path to partnership be more realistic at another law firm? Will you really make more money without sacrificing your personal life? These are just a few of the questions that a skilled and credible recruiter like MB Attorney Search will help you assess through our attorney services.

Finding an Associate Attorney Job

Asking insightful, long-term, and big-picture questions are important, but many associates are unsure what questions to ask and how to get the answers. This is when Michelle Bigler, attorney recruiter and founder of MB Attorney Search, comes in. With over two decades of legal headhunting and legal placement experience, Michelle’s knowledge of legal markets like Chicago, Minneapolis, and Milwaukee, deep client relationships, and a tenacious reputation for honesty and ethical business practices is what sets Michelle apart from the competition in legal placement.

Making a job change is a pivotal moment in an attorney’s career. It’s a moment when you will leave mentors that have invested precious time in you, shareholders that gave you your first work assignment, loyal staff who carefully proof your work, and clients who have trusted you as counsel and confident. As if updating your resume wasn’t daunting enough, navigating the complex job search, interview process, and offer negotiation stages is a challenging process that can put even the most skilled M&A lawyer or Litigator to the test. Whether your current role has been a positive or negative experience, your next career move is of paramount importance that you make a well-informed decision.

Our Reputation

5 Stars
Michelle has extensive knowledge of the legal market with which she educates her candidates.  She is responsive, professional, candid, and undeniably ethical.  Perhaps even more importantly, she invests her time in getting to know her candidates in order to ensure that any placement is the right fit for both the candidate and the employer.  I truly believe that she has the best interests of her clients and candidates in mind and would recommend her without hesitation.

Michelle is an outstanding legal recruiter. She answered every question I had about the law firm hiring process, and no question was out of bounds. Michelle helped me get past any insecurity I felt about heading to a new law firm, too. Needless to say, Michelle made my decision to move to a new firm incredibly easy, and she even checked in on me during the transition. She cares about her clients and goes to bat for them. So glad I found her!

Working with Michelle was such a pleasure! She was not only attentive to my professional needs as a job candidate, but she really took the time to understand my specific needs in relocating to Wisconsin. Michelle genuinely listened to me, which was clear in her communications, as she is extremely responsive and comprehensive. Her experience in the recruiting field is evident and she is very well connected. I would highly recommend working with her to anyone looking for a position!

Michelle was fantastic to work with, from start to finish! She truly was my advocate throughout the process of finding a new position and kept me timely informed of new developments every step of the way. Most critically, I always knew that Michelle was looking out for my best interests and was ensuring that I was making a career step that was right for me. I cannot recommend Michelle's expertise and assistance enough to candidates seeking a new career opportunity.
