NEW YORK — Lateral Hub is proud to announce the launch of its innovative job board for top-tier law firms and lawyers, providing a new, efficient way for lawyers to find lateral job opportunities. Partnering with large, midsize, and boutique top-tier law firms, Lateral Hub posts lateral openings on its online job board and in its weekly newsletter. Candidates can easily browse and filter lateral openings and apply directly in seconds. Law firms can hire candidates directly, saving on recruiting fees and gaining wider exposure for their lateral openings.
“We at Stroock were excited about the efficiency that the Lateral Hub platform offers us,” said Senior Legal Personnel & Recruiting Director, Diane Cohen. “The ability to introduce greater transparency and reach into our lateral recruiting efforts boosts our presence in the market, tangibly demonstrates our commitment to innovation, and enhances the work that our recruiting team is doing.”
The friction points for lateral candidates in the current hot hiring market are difficulty discovering which law firms are hiring and the time-consuming process of completing lengthy online applications. Lateral Hub was born out of Founder and CEO Albert Tawil’s own frustrations with his job search experience. “After my own lateral move, and helping dozens of others with their job searches, I realized that it’s too difficult and time-consuming to see which firms are hiring,” said Tawil. “Through my conversations with associates, recruiting directors, and hiring partners it became clear that busy associates want an easier way to see what is out there, and firms want an easier and less expensive way to hire.”
Lateral Hub’s law firm partners include Am Law-ranked large national and international firms as well as highly regarded boutiques and midsize firms. When job seekers submit their job applications through Lateral Hub, firms can opt to have the application information submitted directly to the law firm’s application tracking system, saving law firm recruiting teams time and effort in processing new hires. Lateral Hub gives law firms the unique opportunity to increase their brand awareness and put their best foot forward outside of the traditional channels of firm websites or LinkedIn.
“We are excited to support Albert as an alum of Fenwick on the launch of this new platform,” said Caryn Gottlieb, Director of Attorney Recruiting at Fenwick & West. “We hope that this innovative tool will benefit the recruitment process by connecting firms with top candidates quickly and efficiently.”
Lateral Hub allows participating law firms to post firm information, Q&As, and FAQs directly on their own Lateral Hub firm profile page, in addition to the job postings. Lateral Hub also sends a weekly eNewsletter with legal career advice, news, and featured job postings. Member law firms have the opportunity for practice group leaders, recruiting team members, and internal firm career advisors to contribute content for the eNewsletter, such as guest blog posts, articles, and insights into the firm’s practice groups and culture.
