Top law firms today are bringing the same rigor and thoughtful approaches that they apply to their legal work to their internal leadership and operations. Internal firm leadership roles — including executive directors and C-level positions leading strategy, innovation, marketing and other areas — are growing more sophisticated, and firms are seeking strong leaders who can make a big impact on results. As top firms continue optimize their operations, exceptional talent in firm leadership positions will become an even bigger imperative.

At Spencer Stuart, we combine the experience of former practicing attorneys in our Legal, Compliance & Government Affairs Practice with the broader industry expertise of our Professional Services Practice, enabling our team to identify and recruit executives with the critical leadership capabilities to lead in the legal sector, from sophisticated boutique firms to large, multinational firms. We have partnered with AmLaw-ranked firms on placing key leaders in positions such as chief practice management and marketing officer, chief operating officer, chief financial officer, and many more.

We also serve as trusted advisers with clients on their executive leadership agenda, including succession planning, cultural assessment and more. Our deep relationships with clients gives us an intimate understanding of their culture and strategic needs, so we can uniquely tailor our advisory services to each firm.
