As a boutique legal search firm, we have over 30 years of specialized legal search experience and have recruited attorneys with diverse backgrounds to positions throughout the country.

If you are an exceptional attorney who wants to move to an industry leading corporation or law firm, Carpenter Legal Search, Inc. (CLS) may have an opportunity for you.  We take great pride in bringing the most qualified legal talent available in the marketplace to our clients.  On each search, we are focused on the fit ® so that our clients and our candidates have the greatest opportunity for success.

After you have contacted us, submitted your resume and established a relationship with CLS, you will be considered for opportunities as they arise.  When we are engaged on a search that matches your background and qualifications, you will be contacted and screened to establish the initial fit.  When you are matched with an opportunity that you would like to pursue, you will be thoroughly interviewed to fully assess your qualifications for the specific position.   As one of the most qualified candidates, and with your prior written consent, your materials will be submitted to the client.  Selected candidates will be scheduled for client interviews.  When you are extended an offer of employment, we will be there to help you navigate through that process and to assist with onboarding.  We will continue to stay in contact after you start your new position.  Our commitment to you does not end with the conclusion of a search.

We value the relationships that we have with our candidates and take great pride in being a partner in your professional growth and success.  Please see the Current Searches section of our website, which lists many of our active searches, or contact us to Become A Candidate so that we may keep you apprised of future opportunities.  All inquiries will remain in strict confidence.
