BUILDING A BETTER LEGAL CAREER
At Quintain Recruiting, we are committed to placing the right people in the right positions. We pledge to be a collaborative partner for you as you accomplish your career goals in an environment that will sustain you both personally and professionally.
As attorneys ourselves, we recognize that your substantive work, colleagues, clients, environment and compensation are all independent criteria that you will evaluate, and, with luck, maximize in any new position. Every candidate will weigh these factors differently. As a result, we spend as much time as possible getting to know you and your skills, goals and needs so that we help you find your best career match, whether that is at a law firm, in a corporate law department, at a non-profit or in some other capacity. We recognize that every working environment has a different climate, different expectations and varied growth opportunities. Only when you are in the right position, will you be professionally and personally satisfied with your career and only then can we say that we have accomplished our primary goal of Building a Better Legal Community.
HOW WE HELP
While some of our competitors forward your name, resume and LinkedIn profile to their clients without notifying you and in some cases without discussing the position with you at all, at Quintain Recruiting, we go Beyond Expectations by making sure that you are in charge of your career development. We view our role not as a job broker but as a counselor, coach and advocate in your professional growth. To that end, we present the pros and cons of every opportunity that may be a match for you so that you can evaluate the right fit and determine whether or not to move forward with any position. In addition, we will review your resume, writing samples, list of prior transactions and /or other application materials to help create the most attractive candidate package possible. Throughout the process, we will provide you with interview tips and preparation, salary negotiation assistance and advice on your career development, including helping you work through the plusses and minuses of any opportunity that you have developed without our assistance.
While we don’t promise to find every candidate that we work with a great new position or opportunity, we hope to be of assistance in some way to you as you build your career and to go Beyond Expectations for you.

WHAT TYPE OF OPPORTUNITY ARE YOU LOOKING FOR?
LAW FIRM ASSOCIATES
Are you a high quality associate looking for a new environment, practice area, or geographic fit? Our law firm clients are forever looking for associates and we constantly work on great positions including mergers and acquisitions, finance, real estate, litigation, intellectual property and regulatory specialties. Keep in mind that law firm hiring tends to be cyclical. Sometimes, corporate attorneys are most coveted. At other times, litigation, bankruptcy and patent lawyers are in high demand. When you work with Quintain Recruiting, we will use our experience in the market to give you a sense for how long you might expect to be looking for a new position given your skill set. Most often our associate searches focus on candidates with two to six years of experience and salaries ranging from about $90,000 for more junior attorneys at smaller firms to in excess of $250,000 for more senior lawyers at large international law firms.
LAW FIRM PARTNERS AND GROUPS
Do you have your own book of business and associates but aren’t satisfied with your current law firm platform? Law firms come in all shapes and sizes. Some firms are large full service firms with international resources, high billable rates and are open to successful practices in any specialty. Other firms focus on a particular practice area such as litigation or real estate. Still others may have a particular geographic or industry focus. In addition, compensation structures vary from highly formulaic arrangements based largely, if not entirely, on revenue production while others have a more flexible and subjective compensation calculus. Regardless of the type of firm, all of our clients are looking to grow by bringing in complementary practice areas and personality types. When you work with Quintain Recruiting, we will use our experience in the market to help you find the right platform to build your practice.
Have you decided that your current position isn’t meeting your professional and personal objectives? Do you want to move into an in-house role or to a new company that better aligns with your goals? Some of our clients look for generalists to handle everything from commercial contract negotiations to employment litigation. Other clients want subject matter experts who can manage all of the company’s intellectual property licensing or real estate portfolio. Sometimes we are asked to work on general counsel positions for a mid-sized company and other times we handle a junior corporate counsel role for a Fortune 500 company. Occasionally our clients demand specific industry experience, at other times, personality fit is most critical. Salaries typically begin at $60,000 with a 10% bonus opportunity for very junior attorneys at smaller companies to north (sometimes substantially north) of $300,000 with 30% bonuses and compelling equity participation. These opportunities are diverse and filling them requires creativity on our end and imagination on yours. When you work with Quintain Recruiting, we will help you develop a strategy for evaluating these opportunities and determine the best match for you.
