THE LEIBOW JAWIN GROUP IS A LEGAL SEARCH BOUTIQUE DEDICATED SOLELY TO LATERAL PARTNER PLACEMENTS, GROUP ACQUISITIONS, LAW FIRM MERGERS AND IN-HOUSE PLACEMENTS.

OUR FOCUS IS OUR DIFFERENCE

What sets us apart from other legal search firms is our exclusive focus on the partner search process — whether finding the right law firm for our lateral partner candidates or the right partners for our law firm clients. We are a true legal search boutique.

OUR KNOWLEDGE IS OUR ADVANTAGE

Our approach provides our clients and candidates with the deepest knowledge of the competitive legal market and the highest level of service dedicated to their unique needs. The founders of The Leibow Jawin Group, Sandy Leibow and Michele Jawin, former practicing attorneys, have a proven record of success.

FOR LAW FIRMS

The Leibow Jawin Group is proud to work with elite law firms who are committed to growth through quality lateral partner acquisitions and mergers. We “partner” with our law firm clients by working closely with firm management to develop a true understanding of the firm’s culture and business and its strategic plans for future growth. We believe that successful lateral partner acquisitions can be achieved with this level of collaboration and commitment.

Sandy Leibow and Michele Jawin have been engaged by the most prestigious law firms to conduct retained searches. Retained searches enable us to devote more of our time and resources to the specific needs of the client and have resulted in some of our most successful placements.

For Candidates

The Leibow Jawin Group believes that a partner should only move to a firm with the platform, depth, and culture that will allow him or her to be greater and take their practice to the next level. We do not believe that partners should move simply for the sake of moving.

Because of our deep understanding of law firms and our close relationships with managing partners and chairpersons, we are able to guide partner candidates through this complex market and process.

We take the time to understand a partner’s practice, expertise, and goals. Before making a lateral move, we counsel and assist our partner candidates to develop a joint business plan with the prospective law firm to assure that there is true synergy and a plan for integration. This creates a blueprint for success.

Since we exclusively work with partners, it makes meetings with candidates more discreet and private than our competitors. Our partner candidates will never run into their associates or temporary/contract attorneys when meeting with us.

Confidentiality

The Leibow Jawin Group is made up of professionals who are committed to maintaining the confidentiality of our partner candidates and law firm clients. This commitment to confidentiality has earned us the trust of the legal community.

Partners will never be presented to a law firm without their express permission and all precautions will be taken to protect their privacy.

We will never disseminate confidential information a law firm shares with us without prior authorization.
