Temporary Attorneys: As Founders

The legal industry is in a constant state of change. Shifting regulations, new legal precedents, and evolving practice areas make it difficult for anyone outside the industry to identify attorneys who can surmount law departments’ challenges. Seeing the struggle play out for too long, we asked ourselves a serious question:

Who better to find and recruit highly qualified attorneys than actual attorneys?

With that vision, we started Assigned Counsel® in 1992 and provided corporations, law firms, and other organizations with temporary, temp-to-perm, and full-time attorneys ever since.

What sets Assigned Counsel apart?

Though the market for temporary attorneys has grown since our start, we still have a 97.7% satisfaction rate among the many General Counsel and CLOs who choose us as their legal staffing firm partner. Here’s what they value most about Assigned Counsel:
