What We Offer

JD Search Advisors handles law firm mergers and attorney placements across the United States, operating from Los Angeles. The company specializes in law firm mergers, partner placement, group placement, associate placement and law firm consulting.

Partner & Group Placement

We connect highly skilled and well regarded attorneys to opportunities in firms looking to enhance their practice areas.

Law Firm Mergers

We enable firm expansion by executing mergers and consolidating practice groups from other firms.

Law Firm Consulting

We target and solve issues in management, branding, and administration to facilitate long-term growth and development.

Why Work with Us?

By using metrics available for the top 300 law firms in the country we render an in-depth analysis of a firm’s needs for successful growth. We meet face-to-face with firm management to understand both the nature of the firm’s practice areas and as importantly, the firm culture. We understand that making a match of expertise does not work if the firms culture and that of the potential lateral partners do not mesh well.

We meet every candidate in person and asses their expertise, while assuring that there is an appropriate cultural fit. The years of experience we have gives greater assurance that any placement will have a much higher degree of long term success.

JD Search Advisors is often called upon by legal journal’s such as The Los Angeles Daily Journal to give expert commentary on recent issues in the ever changing world of law firm growth and development.
