For Legal Professionals

Essex Partners offers specialized transition solutions to meet the unique needs of law firm partners, senior and C-suite executives employed by law firms, and in-house senior attorneys and general counsels across all industries

Our services are delivered by firm partners, who bring deep expertise in executive transition and direct experience in the legal sector to every client engagement. We understand the discretion lawyers require while seeking their next great opportunity. We also understand the roles and skill sets held by other professionals in the legal profession and how those skills can be transferred within and outside the industry.

For over 25 years, our partners have been working with legal professionals seeking similar roles at new organizations, exploring career changes, pursuing entrepreneurial endeavors, seeking Board opportunities or putting together a portfolio of activities to support an active and intellectually rich retirement.

Legal services include:

  • Career Transition—Legal professionals in transition receive private, confidential consulting with a dedicated career advisor. We tailor our services to help lawyers respond to market needs and penetrate target companies and firms, or change course.
  • Leadership Development—Our services are ideal for law firms and businesses designing leadership succession plans and for practicing attorneys who want to build their leadership capacity. Services include individual coaching, as well as management training, and group and organizational development to enhance expertise.
  • Retirement Planning—Retirement planning services deliver a personalized and systematic process to help individuals assess their retirement readiness by working with a certified retirement consultant. Our process addresses the needs of the individual and assists employers with succession planning, knowledge transfer, and talent acquisition.

Essex Partners also offers our legal clients a wide variety of world-class amenities and resources including in-house research, dedicated support and private, executive office space.
