I approach the coaching relationship as a "reflection partner," creating a supportive yet challenging space in which my clients can create their own paths to—and definitions of—success. I provide structure and accountability to this process, but the client remains in the driver's seat at all times.

Miriam Frank leads our Legal Talent Management Consulting Team. She is focused on assisting corporate law departments as they seek to meet the needs—now and in the future—of complex and growing businesses. As part of this mission, Miriam helps build effective teams and, through executive coaching and the use of recognized assessments, guides senior in-house lawyers as they acclimate to new roles and responsibilities. She brings more than 30 years of experience as a lawyer, executive search consultant and senior executive, manager and leader, as well as a warm, down-to-earth manner, to her coaching and consulting. Miriam is certified by and is a member of the International Coach Federation, Board Certified (by the Center for Credentialing and Education) and holds the credential of Advanced Certified Personal and Executive Coach. She works with individual lawyers and with teams to help them to achieve their professional goals.

Miriam is also a member of our leadership team, working closely with many general counsel and other senior executives, gaining a unique perspective on what they look for when they hire senior talent. Previously, Miriam conducted senior-level searches on behalf of corporate law departments in a wide range of industries, all over the country.

Miriam travels extensively and enjoys meeting current and prospective clients. In her spare time, she enjoys audiobooks, walking with her dog, Max, and spending time with family and friends.
