Team moves & office launches

Since launching in 2003 we have established SSQ as the leaders in partner and associate team moves and office launches. We have launched more law firms and moved more teams than any other legal search consultancy.

Our consultants are experts at working with clients to establish exactly what they are looking for when building out practice areas with new teams and helping them with all talent related aspects of launching in new locations.

Team moves

Finding the right team and combination of partners and associates in order to grow a law firm is crucial for the ongoing success of the firm. It requires careful mapping of the market, complete discretion and an awareness of timing. Our team of senior consultants has an enviable track record of working with clients in order to achieve these types of moves.

Law firm office launches

We have worked with countless law firms in Germany and across Europe, the Middle East and Asia to open offices in new locations. We are leaders in this unique space.

Finding the right lawyer to lead a new office and the right legal talent to support them is crucial. We work in partnership with our clients to tailor the search and the entire process is approached with complete discretion.

A project like this requires more than just finding the right talent and our team can also advise and guide law firms on the logistics required when opening in new locations. An understanding of the local market is key. We have three offices on the ground in Germany, Frankfurt, Düsseldorf and Munich giving our consultants first-hand knowledge and understanding of the market.  

Through our international network we are able to offer insight into markets around the world. We also have a strong track record of opening offices for law firms in locations where we do not have offices.
