Tyler Myers, Director on our In-House Counsel Recruiting team, works with a broad range of global, national and regional companies as well as institutions of higher education and non-profits to identify talented general counsel, senior-level attorneys and compliance professionals to build and grow their legal teams.
Tyler lives on the northside of Chicago and enjoys exploring the city, especially during long walks with her cocker spaniel, Lady, as well as trying new restaurants. She also loves cooking and baking for family and friends, running, listening to podcasts, and learning, semi-successfully, to keep a growing number of plants alive.
Prior to joining Major, Lindsey & Africa, Tyler worked as a legal recruiter at a boutique legal recruiting firm in Chicago, where she placed candidates of all levels in law firms and in-house positions. She also served as the director of legal projects at a large legal staffing and consulting firm, where she managed and oversaw the administration and coordination of all legal projects for law firms and corporate legal and contracts departments in the Greater Chicago Area.
A graduate of Northwestern University School of Law, Tyler assists Northwestern Law’s Career Services with alumni advising, counseling recent graduates and experienced attorneys considering career changes.
