The lateral market is hotter than ever, yet many firms continue to struggle with lackluster performance from lateral hires. Industry experts peg success rates at 50/50 - not a ringing endorsement as a fail-safe strategy. Yet proper due diligence can make a significant difference.

In this two-part series, we explore how to leverage data into higher success rates. Our conversation includes:

  • Finding the right lateral hires - what the research shows
  • Using data to determine portability of work and suitability of candidates
  • Performing benchmark analyses to isolate talent gaps and opportunities
  • Creating a talent matrix to evaluate operational models and succession planning needs
  • Crafting a value proposition using data to attract and secure lateral candidates
  • Supporting integration with CI

Learning Outcomes:

  • Understand the current state of lateral hiring among law firms and identify the challenges and pitfalls of lateral hiring
  • Learn a variety of research strategies and due diligence measures that will help improve success rates of lateral hires
  • Delineate the role of CI in all stages of lateral hiring, from identification to integration
