By: Karen Anderson

ESQ Recruiting and its Atlanta Managing Director, Vanessa Vidal, were recognized by The International Women’s Leadership Association and voted Best Atlanta Legal Recruiters. They were considered for this honor based on outstanding leadership skills, commitment to the legal recruiting profession, and contributions to the legal community.

ESQ Recruiting is home to some of the most respected legal recruiters in Atlanta, New York, California, and Asia. At ESQ Recruiting, we know how to identify and recruit the best attorneys from helping companies hire their first in-house counsel to building an legal department to new office branches, our legal recruiters are known for successfully recruiting legal talent for leading corporations across the United States and Asia.

Our ESQ Recruiting Atlanta office focuses exclusively on the recruitment of high-caliber legal talent across the South and Southeast. Our legal recruiters have successfully place in-house lawyers in cities including but not limited to Atlanta, Charlotte, Raleigh, Richmond, Memphis, Miami, Tampa, Jacksonville, Birmingham, New Orleans, Houston, and Dallas, including but not limited to No. Since our inception in 2007, we have established a successful record of legal recruiting in a wide range of legal positions, servicing small companies to corporate legal departments of recognized Fortune 500 industry leaders.

ESQ Recruiting brings more experience, more resources and more contacts to the legal recruiting process than our competition. Combining the capabilities of a national search firm with the personal attention of a boutique firm enables us to be the best. Moreover, all of our legal recruiters are former attorneys who have practiced with leading law firms and companies prior to joining ESQ Recruiting. Our experienced legal recruiters, a combined recruiting experience of over 50 years, have owned and operated the firm since its inception. As a result, we have become known and referred to as “in-house legal recruiting specialist.” We understand the legal marketplace, we understand the in-house legal niche, and we understand the legal recruiting industry. Most importantly, we know how to our jobs successfully. Our legal recruiters know how to provide our clients with the most qualified candidates, whether they are on the job market or not.

Our legal recruiters take a very collaborative approach to our searches, partnering with our clients and harnessing our collective knowledge, personal contacts, and resources to find the very best candidate. We also access our extensive proprietary database of legal talent, which we update continuously. With the benefit of all of our resources, combined with an extensive network of local recruiters, we are known to quickly identify the best candidates. Then, through a detailed in-person interview to assess skills, experience, and character, we further evaluate potential candidates to assess whether their personalities, work style, and reasons for considering a job change would be a fit in the company’s culture. As a result, we have an excellent track record of not only placing top-notch candidates, but also of making placements that stand the test of time.

Early on, we earned the reputation as a leader in the legal recruiting field by consistently finding ways to exceed our clients’ expectations. Because of our history of success, most of the business we currently enjoy is the direct result of referrals from existing clients.  We could not be more proud to have been voted Best Atlanta Legal Recruiters by IWLA, and look forward to continue to serve as a leader the legal recruiting industry.
