Reimagining Legal Services for Mission-Driven Organizations

Legal and compliance leaders play a pivotal role in maintaining the integrity of complex organizations, particularly during times of change and uncertainty related to constant flux in the regulatory landscape, financial scrutiny, public pressure, technology disruption and escalating demands on compliance. As legal departments expand, expectations for success mount and leadership becomes more critical.

WittKieffer’s Legal and Compliance Practice team understands the landscape to recruit exceptional chief legal officers, chief compliance officers, law school deans and other essential roles. Our legal executive search consultants assist organizations in healthcare, education and related industries to recruit dynamic leaders who innovate while achieving success and compliance.

Insightful Recruiting in Law and Compliance

WittKieffer’s Legal and Compliance Practice has served hundreds of organizations in the pursuit of leaders as well as organizational assessment and structure analysis, as many of our clients choose to insource these critical functions. We have developed relationships with in-house legal senior leadership in healthcare, higher education, Fortune 500 companies and not-for-profit organizations as well as practice leaders at the nation’s leading law and consulting firms.

In addition to helping our clients identify leaders who strengthen their respective approaches to policy, advocacy and impact, our consultants have established an impressive track record of serving law schools in pursuit of deans and presidents. We take great pride in our placements who are educating and advancing the next generation of lawyers and leaders spanning the spectrum of all legal disciplines.
