Carpenter Legal Search, Inc.

With over 30 years of experience in the legal recruiting industry, Carpenter Legal Search, Inc. specializes in permanent attorney search for corporations and law firms nationwide.

At CLS, we provide our clients with the most comprehensive and targeted attorney searches in the industry, identifying not only those candidates who are actively seeking a new opportunity, but also uncovering those top quality passive candidates who are not currently seeking a new position. Our clients partner with us primarily on a retained or exclusive basis because of our specialized knowledge and experience, vast network of candidate relationships, detailed and comprehensive search process, and dedication to building and fostering successful working relationships.

In-house searches range from General Counsel positions, including first corporate counsel, to staff positions for both publicly and privately held clients, including major financial institutions and manufacturing, software, telecommunications, accounting and pharmaceutical companies. Law firm consulting and recruiting services include firm acquisitions and practice group mergers, establishing branch offices, and adding Partners and Associates in all specialties of the law.

On each search, we find the most qualified attorneys to fill our clients' talent acquisition needs. We are focused on the fit ® to ensure that every placement has the greatest opportunity to succeed, always mindful that we are investing in both our clients and candidates for the long term.

CLS is a member of the National Association of Legal Search Consultants (NALSC), of which Lori J. Carpenter is a former Member of the Board of Directors.
