JuriStaff’s temporary attorney placement division focuses exclusively on the legal market. Our clients include AMLAW firms, boutique firms, small firms and corporate legal departments from public and private companies. Geographically, we serve clients throughout the United States, Europe and Asia.
Temporary staffing with contract attorneys is a cost effective outsourcing solution for any project need. It is a solution that allows firms to capture otherwise lost billings on current work and to take on new projects that would otherwise be too large for its permanent attorney team alone.
Temporary attorney and paralegal staffing also allows firms to handle matters beyond their typical practice areas by bringing in temporary attorneys with specialized expertise in these matters.The use of temporary attorneys allows corporations to keep outside legal costs down by keeping certain projects in house.
Temporary attorneys and paralegals provide a way for corporate legal departments to expand and contract the size of their legal department based on the workload without utilizing outside counsel or increasing the department’s head count.
Whether a project requires attorneys with exceptional credentials, specific practice experience, particular bar admissions (including admissions in foreign countries), or attorneys fluent in almost any language, JuriStaff’s temporary attorneys can provide the solution.
Substantive Temporary Projects
In addition to document review projects, temporary attorneys can provide valuable support for substantive legal projects. Law firms and corporate legal departments retain JuriStaff’s substantive temporary attorneys to assist in virtually any task their permanent attorneys perform.
JuriStaff’s substantive temporary attorneys have exceptional academic and employment credentials. These attorneys are used for projects such as trial preparation, research and writing, acting as temporary general counsel, contract review and preparation, and most other tasks performed by permanent attorneys.
JuriStaff's substantive temporary attorneys are also used to handle matters outside a firm’s typical expertise including matters requiring being barred in other US states or foreign countries or being fluent in any language (written and verbal).
JuriStaff regularly works with clients that retain work-at-home temporary attorneys. This option allows JuriStaff to recruit nationally to find the candidates best suited for an assignment. Because the candidates are licensed attorneys and bound by the rules of ethics, our clients typically see no difference between a work-at-home temporary attorney and an internal attorney employee taking work home.
We Have the Experience and Tools to Identify Top Talent
JuriStaff recruiters are trained in the recruitment and placement of both temporary and direct hire candidates. We are able to utilize direct hire search skills (active recruitment, extensive networking, referrals, etc.), as well as temporary recruitment tools (job postings, job boards and our extensive database of existing candidates) to identify excellent candidates. Our process ensures that we will be able to locate candidates who are the best fit for our clients.
Candidates placed by JuriStaff are thoroughly screened using our 13-point checklist. This process includes the completion of reference checks and the confirmation of academic credentials, past work experience, and relevant licensures. Contact a JuriStaff Recruiter for an explanation of how our screening process works.
