Partner recruiting

The Major, Lindsey & Africa Advantage

We've been in your shoes. Many of the partner recruiters are former law firm partners themselves, giving us a perspective and understanding not available anywhere else. We share an intimate knowledge of the existing marketplace, insight into the culture and dynamics of individual law firms, and extraordinary negotiating savvy. You can count on having the dedication of one primary consultant and unwavering focus on your success as you embark on this journey.

WHAT CLIENTS ARE SAYING

"When I began working with Major, Lindsey & Africa, we talked about finding a firm that would allow me to build on existing expertise across multiple practices to deliver what clients want. After meeting with a significant numbers of firms, I'm delighted that my recruiter was able to help pave the way for me to join Morrison & Foerster. It was a pleasure to work with my recruiter who exhibited the highest levels of professionalism at all times and has enabled me to land at such a great firm."

"I have used Major, Lindsey & Africa to open new offices for us, as well as to recruit high-impact groups in our more established offices. They are without a doubt the 'sterling standard' when it comes to legal recruiting firms. My only hesitation in saying so publicly is that I'd rather keep them all to ourselves!"
