Legal Services

Gilbert Tweed International Legal Practice evolved out of true need. Corporate America has for many years made extensive use of retained search to secure the best and brightest talent to grow profitability. We can deliver to you, on an on-going basis, a consistent flow of partners with practices that can make an immediate contribution to the bottom line.

A Gilbert Tweed International search is timely and thorough. Our consultants take the time with you to construct a precise, sensitive, accurate and realistic definition of each practice. We know how to search out the best people, how to carefully evaluate their skills and experience and what will motivate that special attorney who fits your professional, economic and cultural needs.

Recruiting a partner or associate is not a simple task; market demand for these professionals is high. Only a very small number of high-level achievers are actively seeking a new situation. The best of candidates might not consider themselves in the job market until Gilbert Tweed International recruits them.

Clear understanding, straight talk, proven solutions and searches that don’t fail, that‘s the hallmark of Gilbert Tweed International. Our clients agree.
