Recruiting General Counsel and key in-house legal and compliance executives
As business continues to grow more complex, organizations of all sizes and across all industries are seeking key in-house legal executives to mitigate risk and provide sound guidance to executive leadership teams. When a company makes the right hire in this area, the role brings immediate and lasting returns on the investment.
That’s why at JM Search, we’ve built a highly experienced and deeply connected team of experts dedicated to matching exceptional in-house legal and compliance leaders with private equity-backed, private, and public companies. We understand the critical importance of getting it right when working at the GC, Chief Legal Officer, and Chief Compliance Officer level and are dedicated to supporting the ever-evolving needs of our clients and their businesses. Since 1980, we’ve expected nothing less and neither should you.
“Working with the JM Search Legal team was a pleasure. They took the time to understand our business and where it was headed. They intuitively understood our need for a Chief Legal Officer and dedicated the time to focus on the nuances and smaller details that were important. They presented us with qualified candidates early and often, which resulted in a great hire. The entire team at JM Search are my go-to executive search firm.”
“Working with JM Search has been an exceptional experience. From the very first conversation they were dedicated to finding the best fit for both the company and myself. They spent a lot of time getting to know me, understanding my strengths and weaknesses, and aligning them with the company’s needs. They were thorough in their approach and ensured I had a clear understanding of the role, answering all of my questions and clarifying any doubts I had. The responsiveness, availability and willingness to provide guidance has been invaluable. They have been a tremendous support to me, always willing to listen and provide mentoring when navigating difficult situations. Their enthusiasm and positive attitude has helped ease the process of transitioning from government service to a private-equity backed firm. I cannot recommend JM Search enough. Thank you for everything!”
