Our partner legal search team is the market leader both in France and around the world. We are regularly ranked within the top tier of search businesses working at this level. We work with law firms across France and internationally.  Our team has built up an unrivalled track record at partner level, responsible for some of the most high profile moves across the industry. 

We have long established relationships with the majority of the leading US, UK and international law firms operating in France as well as many of the leading domestic practices.

Each search is bespoke. We work with clients to establish exactly what talent would best benefit their business, updating them on the current market and advising in realistic terms how successful their search will be. 

Our Methodology

We approach all lawyers in a highly sensitive and confidential manner; introducing new opportunities only to those who we think fit our client’s instructions. We spend time with each of our clients to agree messaging before we approach the market in order to ensure that there is a consistent picture.

We have a dedicated research function and our team is continually mapping the market across France and around the world. Therefore, we are able to identify the right lawyers very quickly and to deadlines.  Our international network also means that clients have access to the very best talent around the world.

Once a short list has been agreed SSQ will manage the entire process: agreeing the messaging with the client; meeting with candidates in the first instance; setting up meetings for the client with candidates; advising on business plans; and helping clients formulate and deliver offers.
