The global search firm for the global century
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 20 local offices around the world. The recruiters in each office have their fingers on the pulse of the local legal marketplace – the area’s leading and up-and-coming lawyers, the most attractive private practice and in-house 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. Whether you are 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.
Because of our global network, we are able to provide you with sophisticated and knowledgeable consultation about multinational corporations and law firms with operations anywhere in the world—the United States, Asia, Europe/Middle East/Africa, and South America. We also are prepared to help you resolve complex issues surrounding cross-border placements such as foreign re-qualification and the realities of expatriates in foreign legal roles. We can even familiarize your staff with customs, cultures and legal environments around the world.
We offer a level of expertise and service you may not typically associate with a legal search firm. But it is what you can expect from engaging a professional advisor and partner like MLA.
