Chicago, July 19 /PRNewswire/
— Juriscape, the parent corporation of the nation's largest group of companies dedicated to assisting legal professionals with their career-transition needs, has announced today the launch of a new company: General Counsel Consulting, a firm dedicated exclusively to in-house search and placement. General Counsel Consulting joins a family of leaders in the attorney-placement market: BCG Attorney Search, LawCrossing, and Legal Authority. Among General Counsel Consulting's strategic assets is a proprietary database of more than 30,000 in-house employer contacts, enabling the firm to extend services to attorneys at a level no other legal-search company can match.
Knowing the demands of the in-house recruiting market, General Counsel Consulting's management employed a rigorous business methodology to ensure the company's effectiveness in the legal-search market. Juriscape's CEO, A. Harrison Barnes, explains: "In-house legal placement is the most demanding form of legal recruiting. Because of the demands in time, resources, and expertise, General Counsel Consulting is structured as a highly specialized search firm, dedicated exclusively to in-house placements." Given that there are practically no other firms that impose these restrictions on their business practices, Barnes is confident the name "General Counsel Consulting" will soon be synonymous with in-house legal placement: "We have learned through other Juriscape companies that market domination is only possible if one commits to a singular task of being the best in a given field and eliminates all possible distractions. That is the design and goal of General Counsel Consulting."
The President of General Counsel Consulting is Vanessa K. Alvarez, whose vision for General Counsel Consulting entails its becoming the world leader in in-house legal placement: "We possess the largest global proprietary database of in-house legal employers and candidates, with more than 200,000 attorney profiles. No other in-house recruiting firm comes close to matching our resources."
Describing her expectations, Alvarez's analysis is almost mathematical: "We have all the necessary ingredients to become an authoritative and dominant force in the market, including a specialized in-house focus, extensive candidate and job resources, and superior technical expertise. I am looking forward to reaping the benefits of the long-term gestational process that preceded the launch."
General Counsel Consulting will be headquartered in Chicago, IL.
