Success Stories

Senior Investment Paralegal

“Working with this team was delightful! I was apprehensive about responding to their DM on LinkedIn but their presentation of a potential opportunity was very personalized and thoughtful and did not feel like a boiler-plate sent to the masses. The team has taken time to work with me after hours and tell me about the position, prepare me for the interview, and patiently answer all of my questions. I truly felt they went to bat for me with the potential employer and obtained all my asks as if it were their own. I can’t thank the team enough. I highly recommend working with them for career growth.”

“Katie pushes both candidates and firms to think about their needs in the long run and not just fill a current gap. She is great at articulating the unique qualities of each organization and candidate to ensure there is a cultural fit and realistic expectations. This is a people business and Katie knows people.”

“I have worked with The Lawt as a Managing Partner of a mid-size firm and as an individual attorney looking to make a change in my career. During my time as a Managing Partner, Katie and her team helped my firm fill various roles.  In the process, she offered strategic advice on growth, and always stood by her placements.  Because she was definitely the best recruiter used by my firm, when it was my turn to make a transition, I did not hesitate to hire Katie.  In the end, she was successful in helping me find a firm with a culture aligned with my practice, and that had a platform to offer the best possible service to my clients.”
Through our daily conversations with candidates, we hear the collective voice of the workforce beg for inspiring leadership and career fulfillment.

5 Benefits to Prioritizing Partnerships with Women- and Minority-Owned Businesses

The Lawt is a certified Women-Owned Business by the WBENC, but our certification is often overlooked and undervalued. Despite their professed importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion, law firms’ commitment to these values is questionable if their business decisions are inconsistent with that commitment. If dubious credibility isn’t motivating, law firms should consider these five compelling benefits to prioritizing partnerships with certified women- and minority-owned organizations:
