ServicesWhether you are a Partner, Associate or in-house lawyer, navigating to a new position can be complex and time-consuming. You need expert insight and someone who can spot the hidden opportunities. With Edge, you’re in good hands: we’ve already successfully walked hundreds of lawyers safely through this process. We know who’s hiring (often before the rest of the market does). We open doors to the law firms and companies that will best support your idea of career success. Always respectful of confidentiality, we are ready to discuss your local options in depth whenever you are. We provide a range of services which include:
- Comprehensive market overview
- Advice on which firms and/or companies to approach
- Shortlist of options
- Regular market updates in your area
- Advance notice of new positions ahead of the market
- Short to long term career advancement strategy
- Finessing your CV
- Interview preparation and feedback
- Offer negotiation and compensation benchmarking
- Managing acceptances and resignations positively
- Support during onboarding in your new position
Our initial meeting will give you a general sense of the market and enable us to really get to know you (beyond your CV) and hear your goals for the short to long term. Following that meeting, we will create a shortlist of options and you’ll decide which ones to move forward. We’ll paint you a clear picture of each opportunity: the leadership, culture and environment, path to promotion, compensation offered and how it compares to market. You will be thoroughly briefed on every aspect of the roles we recommend for you, far beyond the responsibilities set out in the job description, and you’ll decide which roles to pursue. Edge will never send your CV out without your express consent, which means you are always in control of the opportunities you choose to follow.
Technical expertise will only get you so far; lawyers are often rejected without ever knowing the real reason why. Working with Edge means you’ll find out why things didn’t move forward, giving you the chance to address those concerns, as well as adapt for future meetings. We can help you with CV presentation, interview strategy, comparative compensation, offer negotiation and acceptance. We’ll prepare you for all conversations; from why not to accept a counter offer during resignation to how to walk away on a positive note. We’ll be with you every step of the way to your new platform.
