Below is our recent interview with the team from Momentum Search Partners:
Q: Could you provide our readers with a brief introduction to Momentum Search Partners?
A: Momentum Search Partners is a Texas-based legal and compliance recruitment firm with a specific focus on connecting attorneys to optimal permanent roles in both law firms and in-house legal and compliance departments. With years of expertise in the field, we have carved a niche in the legal recruitment landscape, particularly in Austin, Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio. We are deeply committed to filling each search we undertake and to providing the best market and professional advice to each candidate we work with, taking a holistic and personalized approach. Whether it’s placing partners, counsels, associates, or in-house counsels, our recruiters’ prior experience in the legal industry allows us to have a deep understanding of the various practice areas that those in the legal professional specialize in. What distinguishes us is our perseverance and determination to fill every position we’re engaged to fill and our dedication to understanding the intricate needs of both their candidate clients and the hiring organizations. It’s this meticulous attention to detail and profound industry insight that makes us a sought-after choice for legal recruitment.
Q: Can you give us more insights into your services?
A: Momentum Search Partners specializes in recruiting attorneys, paralegals, contract administrators, firm administrative, and other legal support personnel with law firms and corporations. Our placements include partners, special counsels, associates, and in-house counsels from general counsels to entry level counsels in positions best suited for their skills and aspirations. Leveraging deep industry insights, a large network accumulated over many years in the business, and a proprietary database, Momentum tailors its search process to the unique needs of both candidates and employers. Beyond placements, we also offer comprehensive consulting on careers and resumes for candidates/individuals and talent strategy for our client organizations.
Industries We Have Placed Legal Professionals with Include:
- Financial Services
- Investment Management
Our Law Firm clients range from AmLaw 100 firms to regional firms to local boutique specialty firms, and our corporate clients range from Fortune 500, publicly held companies to mid-sized public and privately held companies to small privately held companies and startups.
Q: What can we expect from Momentum Search Partners in the next 12 months? What are your plans?
A: In order to be able to keep up with our clients’ needs we have hired two new full-time legal recruiters in the past 12 months. Our business is affected by the economy and other factors outside our control, but if the hiring market continues to be as hot as it was for the last several years, we would like to continue to grow. We are also investing in new technology tools and in training on how to use them, so that we can quickly bring the very best candidates to our clients’ job opening and provide our candidates with more job options.
Q: What is the best thing about your company that people might not know about?
A: Finding quality, on-point candidates can be difficult, especially in the frenzied hiring market of the past several years, but every recruiter at Momentum brings energy, determination, and perseverance to every search they undertake. On the candidate side, we strive to provide every candidate with timely and honest feedback whether it relates to their resume, how they can improve during the interview process, and what they can expect in the way of compensation and job opportunities, given their background and experience.Activate Social Media:
