How We Work: For Law Firms
We founded Legal Innovators to bring much needed innovation to the law, especially when it comes to the hiring, pricing, profitability, diversity, and inclusion of junior legal talent.
To really drive change, we need to take a new approach to the hiring and recruitment of junior attorneys. Today we are far too reliant on certain standard criteria, based on only one year’s performance in law school. This process excludes some of the most talented candidates, especially women, minorities, and individuals from traditionally underrepresented groups.
At the same time, rates for junior associates are exorbitant and they increase every year. This reduces your firm’s profitability. As a result, you’ve probably had to cut junior headcount and reduce or eliminate training budgets for entry-level hires. You need a more affordable solution for quality legal talent.
That’s why Jonathan Greenblatt and Bryan Parker started Legal Innovators — an innovative alternative legal service provider (or ALSP). We recruit and hire high quality junior legal talent from leading law schools for a 2-year apprenticeship and mentorship program. Our legal professionals receive training from experts in business and the law and take on substantive legal work from top law firms. At the same time, our users benefit from a more skilled, diverse, and inclusive workforce, as well as quality output at a more cost-effective price point, which can result in increased law firm profitability.
“There’s a fundamental mismatch in the market. A law firm wants to sell me time. I want to buy an end result. Law firms are selling me time as a proxy for that end result. I say to my law firm, “You want my businesses? This is what I’m going to pay. If you can’t meet that, I’ll find another firm who will.”
– John Jenkins, Executive Vice President and General Counsel, TE Connectivity
