Succeed with Established Attorney Recruiters

Today’s high-tech society seems to move at the speed of light.  As firms grow and change, they need the flexibility to respond to new employment needs without having to hire an in house human resources team.  Employers want to focus on the business of law and not be hindered by a lengthy search for the perfect candidate.  Often, resources are lacking for entire human resources departments. That’s where attorney recruiters come in.  At Rifkin Consulting, we offer law firms and corporations the ability to attract and secure top tier legal talent at all lateral levels.  Utilizing innovative technology and our large network of established candidate relationships, our attorney recruiters custom tailor each search to meet your unique hiring goals by pre-screening candidates to find attorneys with the credentials that you specify.
