International Legal Recruitment
To provide our clients and candidates with the greatest possible depth and breadth
of service, MLA is the only legal search firm that maintains over twenty local offices
around the world, making us uniquely positioned for truly global legal recruitment.
The recruiters at each of our offices have their fingers on the pulse of the local
legal marketplace – the area’s leading and up-and-coming lawyers, the most attractive
opportunities, plus current and future business trends.
But these local specialists also have the unique advantage of being plugged into
MLA’s connected and collaborative network of offices around the world, enabling
us to serve a legal profession that grows more global every day. This combination
of local expertise with global collaboration gives us a distinct advantage as international
Whether you’re a lawyer looking for opportunities overseas, a multinational in need
of top in-house lawyers or a firm planning to expand your international capabilities,
you can count on MLA to identify the best candidate – or the best job – quickly
and efficiently. We are fully able to provide you with international legal recruiting
consultation that is equally sophisticated and knowledgeable about multinational
corporations and law firms based in the U.S. and Latin America, as well as the EMEA
and Asia Pacific regions. We are also prepared to help you resolve complex issues
surrounding cross-border placements, foreign re-qualification and expatriates in
legal roles. We can even familiarize your staff with customs, cultures and legal
environments around the world.
It’s a level of expertise and capability in international legal recruitment you
don’t usually associate with a recruiting firm. But it’s what you can expect from
an ongoing professional advisor and partner like MLA, and what makes us the most
qualified international legal recruiters in the industry.
