Above the Law Uses Leopard Solutions Data to Law Firm Recruitment Success at 10 Firms
April 4, 2019
In this article, Above the Law selected a group of 10 law firms — including Shearman & Sterling, O’Melveny & Myers, and Goodwin Procter — for a close examination of their recruitment “return on investment.” Leveraging Leopard Solutions’ database, they examined these firms’ recruitment success (or lack thereof) across an array of attorney categories and analyzing variables.
In addition to comparing the firms’ recruitment ROI performance for new hires and laterals (associates, partners, and counsel), they also shared insights from the data on each individual firm concerning the interplay between recruitment ROI and:
- Promotion Rate
- Law School
- Practice Area
- Geographic Market
