Nancy Grimes, Senior Partner of GLI, represented two U.S. attorneys who were in search of a respected legal recruiting firm which could accommodate them by locating opportunities with an international practice that provided an opportunity for cross-marketing to/from an energy practice for purposes of growth and expansion. They also sought a financially sound firm, well positioned in the US as well as globally, which could provide litigation support in the International Dispute Resolution arena. Of course, a strong team concept where partners were completely supportive of one another and had a mentality of providing appropriate support for other partner’s clients were also key components to their search. Nancy Grimes turned to her highly touted research team who after an extensive search pinpointed a sprinkling of firms which were each impeccable matches. Grimes laid the groundwork, identified firms which were synergistic and optimal matches for the two partners and their clients while they continued their global travels and focused on client demands.
The dynamics for the search were very unique because their extensive travel schedule required that GLI manage nearly 100% of the search. Their practices demanded a firm with international connections in Africa, Europe and South America where there was opportunity for cross-marketing to/from an energy practice. Nancy’s knowledge of the global legal scene enabled her to not only locate the widely publicized international firms, but also to uncover those which fly “slightly below the radar” and offer customized international access that could be easily tailored to meet the partners and their clients’ needs. Nancy served as agent/mouthpiece to the legal market, acquiring and deciphering detailed information supplied by the firms in order to narrow the field to the most compatible, synergistic firms. Once that due diligence was completed, all that remained was presenting the select opportunities for review and decision.
Because of Nancy’s dedication, commitment and follow through, she was able to present a number of tremendous opportunities which ultimately led the partners to accept an optimal firm and opportunity. When asked about their new firm, one of the partner’s commented, “I am excited to join a firm as experienced and as respected in international litigation and arbitration as this one. It seems like it is a perfect fit for my practice, and I look forward to working alongside this talented group of lawyers.”
