Lawyers and legal teams can now benefit from coaching, assessment and organizational development services
Hanover, MD (May 15, 2017) — After two years of foundational work, Major, Lindsey & Africa, the world's leading legal search firm, has officially launched its newest service offering, Legal Talent Management Consulting. Led by Miriam Frank, partner and vice president, this offering provides lawyers and legal teams with customized consulting services that are designed to increase performance, productivity and engagement. "Over the last several years, many clients have commented on their need to develop and strengthen their departments, including developing the next generation of leadership," said Greg Richter, vice president and head of the In-House and Solutions Practice Groups. "Our decision to move into consulting was a logical next step as we enhance the scope of our partnership with our clients and candidates."
"With 30 years of experience as a lawyer, legal recruiter, manager and certified executive coach, Miriam was the ideal choice to lead this offering," said John Cashman, president of Major, Lindsey & Africa. "She has a deep understanding of the legal landscape and the people in it as well as what it takes to create an environment in which lawyers can grow, thrive and offer outstanding, effective support to their clients."
Working with Miriam is Barrett Avigdor, managing director, who combines her training as a lawyer, legal recruiter, executive coach and emotional intelligence expert with her experience managing global teams of in-house lawyers to offer a unique perspective on coaching, recruiting, assessment and organizational development. The team can also draw upon a network of subject matter experts, including former general counsel, as appropriate.
The Legal Talent Management Consulting team focuses on facilitating development and growth for individual lawyers and legal teams, both in-house and at law firms. For individual lawyers, the team provides coaching and assessment services; for legal teams and their leaders, the focus is on organizational design and development and building a team culture that attracts and retains top talent.
"We take a highly customized and client-centric approach to determining the project scope, developing a project plan and producing deliverables that will lead to the desired results for the individuals, team and organization involved," said Frank. "More than ever, lawyers need to be nimble in adapting to the changes and demands of business. An investment in legal talent management consulting can provide an essential competitive edge."
