Whether facilitating a merger, practice group acquisition or representing partners, Esquire's effectiveness is fundamentally based on ten components:
Detailed knowledge of the market
Creditability with decision-makers
Ability to make things happen quietly and quickly
Sensitivity to the human element
Soft sell presentations
Strict adherence to confidentiality
While we move quickly, we view the search business as a journey filled with exciting challenges, tough emotional decisions, logistical roadblocks, natural inertia and exciting and continuous interaction with the lawyers we work with. Many of our best relationships are with lawyers we placed and work with. In short, we view this as a long marathon run, not a sprint.
While most legal search firms focus on a limited specific geographical area, Esquire has developed a broader and more global perspective throughout California as well as Washington, D.C., Chicago, New York and Europe. California remains our key focus. We have an enviable track record of placements and strong relationships in Los Angeles, Century City, Orange County, Sacramento, San Bernardino, San Diego, San Francisco and Silicon Valley. Few legal search firms in California can match our track record throughout the state.
