Outplacement for Lawyers

Job transitions are a fact of life—in every economy.

Sometimes circumstances and priorities change. Sometimes a hire just doesn’t work out. Not every law firm associate will make partner and not every partner will stay forever. Corporate legal departments reorganize and downsize.

Regardless of the underlying cause, termination comes as a shock to many attorneys. Outplacement services can be a compassionate way for employers to help their attorneys transition to high quality employment. Career transition coaching and other career services for departing lawyers may also benefit employers:

  • Preservation of goodwill with the departing lawyer
  • Increase in likelihood of client or business referrals from the departing lawyer
  • Protection of the employer’s positive reputation among potential hires
  • Reassurance to remaining attorneys that their employer cares about their long-term success and livelihoods
  • Increase in participation in valuable employer alumni networks 
  • Reduction in unpleasantness, unemployment claims, and lawsuits
