PROFILE: NewinCo offers more than 40 years’
collective experience in a team with global
reach. Our expert staff of practicing attorneys, in-house placement professionals,
and legal recruiters marries extraordinary
success with uncommon value. Our professionals have conceptualized and accomplished complex law firm and departmental
mergers, generating appreciably enhanced
revenues and cost economies for our clients. We develop business plans and expansion strategies for firms, practice groups,
and individual attorneys – and assist with
their successful implementation. We recruit
sophisticated, multi-disciplinary teams to
launch new offices, both domestically and
internationally, and we assist, with utmost
integrity and confidentiality, partner
groups, individual partners, and young associates in achieving their career goals.
NewinCo, however, counts as its greatest
success the long-term personal relationships established with institutional clients
and with the myriad attorneys we have
selectively placed: 80 percent of our candidates go to Global 100 law firms; 10 percent
to foreign firms; and 10 percent land in-house. We hold as friends and colleagues
the Managing Partners of the largest law
firms and the most specialized boutiques.
Similarly, we keep our fingers on the pulse
of every placement – forever. Our sweep
covers five continents; our advice and counsel are uniquely and always one-to-one.
Adding unmatched value to our legal
search and placement practice is our
program management counseling service.
Standing at the intersection of law, public
relations, and cross-cultural sensitivities, we match foreign entities with legal
expertise appropriate to their transactional,
litigation, and/or U.S. regulatory needs. We
then coordinate efforts – regardless of complexity or time zone – to ensure that the
legal and business objectives of our clients
are seamlessly achieved. Our knowledge
of how to do things, coupled with who we
know, gives us unparalleled advantage in
selecting, building, and managing professional teams. Our program management
activities provide a powerful corollary to
our recruiting and placement efforts.
NewinCo – for peerless results, your best
