PROFILE: In 2000, a group of dedicated
search professionals spun off from a national legal search firm and formed Solutus.
In that very first year of operation, we were
selected by the California legal community
as one of the top legal search firms in California (as reported by the California Law
Business Supplement to the Daily Journal).
Since that time, we have built on our commitment to provide the very best service to
candidates and clients alike and expanded
our operations to include offices in Silicon
Valley, San Francisco and Los Angeles.
There are dozens of legal search firms.
What makes Solutus unique is the delivery
of truly strategic search management for
corporate and law firm clients and effective
career guidance for candidates. These are
the comprehensive services that you should
expect from a full-service legal search firm,
and we are committed to their delivery.
To say that we are dedicated exclusively
to the placement of lawyers in law firms
and corporations understates our mission
and impeccable track record. Our overarching objective is to establish long-term relationships with our clients and candidates.
We deliver on this principle by providing
the highest-quality service throughout the
search process, from candidate sourcing
and prescreening through offer and acceptance. A key component of the Solutus
mission is to form long-lasting partnerships through an unwavering emphasis on
client service. Our team approach to each
in-house search guarantees a deep and at-the-ready bench that consistently delivers.
When you have a question or a concern,
it will be addressed promptly – it’s that
simple. We realize that not all decisions
are made during the work day, and we are
there to help you every step of the way
regardless of the hour or day.
We place general counsel and in-house
lawyers across a wide spectrum of industries, as well as law firm partners and associates. In each case, our commitment to
finding a good fit for client and candidate
alike drives every action. We have earned
close relationships with virtually every major law firm in California, as well as most of
the high-quality boutique firms. Similarly,
our track record of building great corporate
legal teams has won us the repeated trust
of leading global companies. Our in-house
searches have spanned the spectrum of
21st-century business from hardware to
software, integrated circuits, Internet,
e-commerce, biotechnology, pharmaceuticals to medical devices. Among non-tech
service companies, one would be hard-pressed to name a market sector where we
lack experience. We invite you to review the
representative roster of our clients found
on our website.
All our recruiters are attorneys who
have practiced in the finest law firms and
corporations in the world. Solutus’ distinctive ability to offer Search Management
and Career Consulting Services arises from
our understanding of the intricacies of
practicing law and the importance of finding compatible colleagues. This experience
creates immediate credibility with clients
and candidates and provides a significant
advantage in the management of a search.
We have sat on hiring committees, and we
have fired lawyers. We have been in your
shoes and have promised ourselves never
to succumb to the temptation to make the
quick placement at the expense of an honest appraisal of whether a match is right for
Our commitment to each client doesn’t
come with an expiration date. Even after
the completion of a search, Solutus continues to provide clients and candidates with
valuable information and consulting in a
variety of areas, including building a legal
department, compensation issues and current market trends.
