You’re an associate with elite academic and firm credentials.
You’re a partner with millions in portable business.
You work with us to get your ideal job.
We give you money.
It really is that simple.
Our clients range from high-end boutiques to the largest firms in the world, and they look for excellence when making a lateral hire. We want to reward you for letting us represent the level of excellence you bring to the table in the lateral process by giving you a portion of the fee that we generate for your placement.
We have a variety of ways to help attorneys looking to make a lateral move, most of which is dependent upon an individual’s wish list and timeline. All of that is explained in the Associates and Partners portions of our site. Below you’ll find a detailed breakdown of the Prestige Rewards Program qualification requirements. We also reward those whose referrals result in placements, so even if you’re not looking but you know someone who is, you could earn some money.
Find out what Prestige Reward you qualify for below, or contact us today at firstname.lastname@example.org.
