Partners – ESP Legal Search

A whole new way to uncover opportunities to motivate a lateral transition.​

Encore Search Partners is focused on working directly with experienced Partners that are confidentially exploring the idea of a lateral transition to another law firm. Our team is comprised of former practicing attorneys, so we have a unique understanding of your pain points, goals, & circumstances.

White-Glove Service

Our Lateral Search Agents work with only one attorney at a time.  You are our #1 priority.  We research & compile a detailed report on the motivations behind your desire to make a lateral transition, and only match you to the law firms that meet your exact needs.  In effect, we interview the Law Firms for you, and bring you the perfect fit, often resulting in 3 or 4 opportunities for you to interview potential employers.

No Boundaries

While other agencies represent the Law Firm, we represent the Attorney.  There are limitless possibilities when you work with Encore Search Partners, because we are not bound to exclusive contracts with one of two law firms in your market.  We work with everyone, which ultimately leads to more unique opportunities, and infinite p[possibilities for the Partners & Associates we represent.

No Fees

Partners that are represented by Encore Search Partners pay no fees.  Although hundreds of man hours are committed to uncovering the right opportunities for you, the law firm that you elect to join pays our recruitment fee.


We understand that you are gainfully employed right now, and that you do not want your current employer to discover that you are passively exploring the idea of making a change.  We always keep your identity & key details completely confidential.

24/7 Availability

We know that you are busy, and that is a massive contributor as to why you are great at what you do.  Therefore, we make ourselves available to you 24-hours per day, 7-days per week, as a resource to navigate the complex world of searching for a new firm.

Our process is a hand tailored approach to the entire recruitment process. ​

The professionals at Encore Search Partners have reverse-engineered the recruitment process to offer better service, insight, & efficiency for high caliber attorneys. By utilizing our comprehensive discovery process, we are able to uncover the true motivators to spotlight the perfect fit for each individual. We take the time to learn about you and put together a plan that is specific to your needs and motivations. What is your incentive to explore a lateral transition?
