Philosophy

Our Philosophy...
            ...Our Commitment.

The philosophy that has guided Pacific Search International for over two decades is that we don't just place lawyers, we build careers. Pacific Search International was founded on the belief that integrity and expertise counts not just for lawyers, but for the search firms that represent them as well. We believe that the most important attribute of a law firm is its people. Given the global competition, changing needs and the changing demand for legal services along with the increased mobility of attorneys, we believe that law firms and in-house counsel are in a war for talent. In an ever changing business environment and competitive global legal landscape, our company is committed to placing attorneys the old fashioned way, discreetly, confidentially, and with results.
 
We believe that our philosophy and unique style separates us from other legal recruiters.  For twenty five years we have worked quietly behind the scenes representing, and counseling many of the leading lawyers in California.  Over the years, many search firms have taken tombstone ads or announced the placement of attorneys in the press, before their clients have had the opportunity to do so.  At Pacific Search International we do not do this because we believe our clients should always come first. We are not in the publicity business, but the search business.
 
In the search business it is all too common for recruiters to always recommend a move. While we are in the business of placing lawyers, sometimes the hardest and most honorable advice is to tell a client that the grass is not always greener somewhere else, or perhaps it is not the right fit. Our clients and candidates are relying on our advice and they deserve the best.  We are engaged in the human capital business and our clients are making decisions about their careers. The work we do and the honest advice and counsel that we give to people is the essence of our work.

We believe, at Pacific Search International, that we meet the highest standards of excellence, integrity, ethics and transparency in representing our clients, and we are committed to that goal in every search we conduct and for every candidate that we represent.  We don’t just place lawyers, we build careers.
