With Katy von Mehren, Founder, von Mehren Legal Search
This webinar will address how to prepare for and conduct a lateral search.
We will look at reasons to make a move, timing, networking, resources available to you, paths you can take and ways to manage your search. Also covered will be tips on looking for a job while employed and working with headhunters. The presenter has worked both sides of the fence, as a law firm recruiter and a headhunter, and is uniquely positioned to educate and give practical advice on this subject.
Katy von Mehren founded von Mehren Legal Search in 2013 after spending three decades working as a law firm recruiter. Her career started in New York as Assistant to the Legal Personnel Administrator with Davis Polk and Wardwell followed by three years as Coordinator of Legal Recruitment Programs and Legal Personnel Administrator at Mudge Rose Guthrie Alexander & Ferdon.
