Harris Legal Search places elite legal talent with companies and law firms of various sizes. We make sure the attorneys we place will be truly fulfilled and valued. Maintaining the respect of standout attorneys in our competitive field requires a foundation of trust and integrity.
Our approach is to communicate, with full honesty and transparency, why a certain opportunity may—or may not—be the one that is right for you. Making a good fit is far more valuable to us than closing a deal.
Our typical attorney candidate is credentialed, hard-working, and strategic about his or her career objectives. We dedicate extensive time to individualized counseling, market research, interview preparation, and negotiation of job offers. We take your career seriously, and will always listen and be sensitive to your concerns in leaving one good opportunity for another.
Our employer relationships can open doors, particularly when we are managing an exclusive search. Our clients trust us to present excellent attorneys. With our market knowledge and objective advice, our candidates find opportunities that dovetail with their goals, rather than just another job.
We are regularly conducting searches for general counsel, in-house counsel, partners, practice groups, and experienced associates. To learn more about current or future opportunities, view our active searches page or contact us now.
Victoria Harris was an incredible resource and advocate for me during an unfamiliar in-house recruitment and interviewing process. Victoria was thorough and responsive and helped me to understand the company she was recruiting me to, along with their needs and the details of the position. To say Victoria knows the legal community is an understatement. She knows whole companies and the people within their law departments. She is familiar with law firm structure and the diverse areas of practice. She is intricately connected and conversant in the world of legal recruiting, and she brings all of her resources to bear for you, whether corporate client or individual lawyer. I cannot recommend Victoria highly enough.
Inti was an incredible partner for my legal search. Inti really understands the local market, including the culture of Seattle firms and companies, and she uses that knowledge to provide career guidance based on the candidate's unique background and career objectives. Any legal recruiter can obtain a list of current openings, but Inti's familiarity with the practices and personalities of the partners and in-house counsels gives her unique insight that she uses to provide practical, candid guidance to her candidates in order to help them find the best fit. As someone who came to Seattle from a top 10 law firm in New York, I couldn’t recommend Inti more as partner for your own legal search in Seattle.
Victoria, It was so nice to finally meet you yesterday. Thank you for taking the time to come out and for the refreshments! I am grateful for all that you've done that has resulted in a great General Counsel opportunity. It all started with a phone call from you. I look forward to our future get together in Seattle!
Inti was with me every step of the way from resume crafting, to interview preparation, to finally receiving an offer, and even after I started at my new position. Inti was always responsive to my questions, gave great advice on how to handle the numerous issues that can come up during the search process. Her connections with the Seattle legal market and her unparalleled reputation and professionalism were extremely helpful as well. I have, and will continue to recommend Inti to any colleagues looking for new positions.
"There aren’t enough words to thank you for all your assistance and support."
"I wanted to express my deepest appreciation for your work on my behalf these last few weeks. I have always felt that you have had my best interests at heart."
"We did it! Thank you for your wise advice, good cheer, upbeat, positive, and caring support during this process. My experience with you has been pleasurable from start to finish."
"I feel very fortunate that a contact out of the blue got me not only a good job but a great friend..."
"Thanks for your help making my lemons into lemonade. I am just thrilled to be joining my new company!"
I consider Inti Knapp to be the best legal recruiter in Seattle for many reasons. Inti Knapp provided me tremendous visibility into the Seattle legal employment market, and successfully placed me at a top tier Seattle firm while I was still in New York and knew no one in Seattle. She provided me great visibility into the Seattle legal compensation market, and she assisted me in negotiating a very favorable relocation and compensation package. I have remained in contact with Inti since my arrival in Seattle several years ago. She provides me insights into trends and opportunities in the Seattle legal employment market, and the legal profession more broadly. She has deep and up-to-date knowledge of the many legal employers in Seattle, and all of the ones I know respect her a great deal. She is among the most important movers and shakers in the Seattle legal scene today.
I am forever indebted to you for bringing me to Big Fish. Getting to be a part of the deal team and making the announcement yesterday was so gratifying. Thank you, thank you.
