Altman Weil offers search and consulting services related to legal operations professionals – law firms seeking executive directors, chief operating officers, human resources directors, and financial officers, and law departments seeking legal operations executives and personnel.

Our Executive Search program offers:

Industry-Specific Knowledge

Because Altman Weil works with law firms and law departments every day, we understand the needs of your organization.

Search Services from a Consultant’s Point of View

Because first and foremost we are management consultants, we conduct all of our executive searches with our consultant’s “hat” on. If we see a need to define the position in question differently from the past, or a need to change the organizational structure or reporting relationships to make them more effective, we will not be shy in offering our advice. Typical recruiters and headhunters do little more than identify and put forward candidates for the job in question. Altman Weil prides itself on finding not just a good candidate looking for a good job at a good law firm or law department, but one who wants and is qualified for your job at your firm or company.


We will never waste your time or money on marginally qualified candidates. We conduct a rigorous screening process before recommending the three or four best candidates to you for a final round of interviews.

The Right ‘Fit’

Only experienced consultants will handle your search, using their years of judgment to determine what is really needed in the position and which candidates have the potential to succeed in your organization.

An Extensive Network of Contacts

Altman Weil maintains a database of current resumes from qualified candidates in the legal profession that enables us to quickly identify potential leads for your position. We also have a long-standing relationship with the Association of Legal Administrators that extends our network of contacts throughout the legal industry.

A Cost-Effective Search

Even the most time-consuming search will come in thousands less than what typical headhunters charge. Altman Weil’s pricing formula saves you money.

No Ulterior Motives

Unlike search firms working for a contingency fee, we are only looking for the right candidate for the job. We work for you.

How You Benefit

You get top-notch legal operations personnel who succeed in your organization — and save time and money on the search process.
