Tower Legal LLC is an executive legal search firm that delivers unparalleled results for our corporate & law firm clients as well as our lateral candidates. We only take on a select number of high-level, sophisticated assignments for our corporate and law firm clients, allowing us to maintain the focus, momentum and results that our clients and candidates want.  Similarly we work with law-firm candidates considering a lateral move on a selective basis so that we can stay responsive and productive.


Founded by legal search veterans with more than 25 years of combined legal search and practice experience, we are as nimble and geographically open as our clients need us to be. We only do permanent (non-temporary) placement work. We work with our clients to set up the most practical search arrangements (contingent, exclusive or retained) that fit the particular need and the organization’s goals around timing, profile and more. Our selective boutique model gives us both the time to pay our clients and their growth goals all the attention they deserve, and our model also frees us up from the myriad conflicts that bar so many larger legal search firms from reaching out to desirable targets.


Two particular strengths are our wide geographic and deep practice perspectives. Together these help us understand the beating, evolving heart of the legal industry.


We have placed General Counsel in multiple industries in each U.S. time zone. We have placed partner-led groups on both U.S. coasts as well as in multiple parts of the U.S. heartland. We have placed dozens of senior in-house attorneys in more than 20 U.S. states. We have also moved dozens of experienced lateral attorneys between law firms in more than a dozen U.S. states, including a number of cross-country moves.


We have worked with the managing partners and executive committees of dozens of AmLaw-ranked firms. We have also spent significant time with the legal leadership of some of the world’s most innovative and important corporations.


Our past experience also includes international legal search work, and though Tower Legal LLC’s current focus is on domestic U.S. legal search work, we are open to discussing international assignments on a case-by-case basis.
