Special Counsel's Lisa Goldstein takes on new role as managing director of retained search

Goldstein will focus on retained search to support law firm growth and legal department efficiencies

JACKSONVILLE, Fla.— October 12, 2017Special Counsel's Parker + Lynch Legal, the national leader in attorney search and placement, today announced Lisa Goldstein, Esq., has accepted a new role as Managing Director of Retained Search.

In her new role, Goldstein will focus on helping corporate legal departments improve business processes, functionality and diversity by filling key positions, including General Counsel, Legal Operations and Compliance. She will also support law firms in creating strategic growth through mergers and Partner acquisitions.

Goldstein is a former practicing attorney with over 20 years of recruiting experience. Since leaving the practice of law in 1995, she has dedicated her career to the business of law. Goldstein previously recruited for DuPont Legal, the legal department that set the standard for creating law firm efficiencies by implementing a strategic approach to outside counsel selection based upon diversity, alternative fees, technological capabilities and collaboration.

Goldstein has also served as a trusted adviser to law firms through her work with internal business development and external mergers. She developed growth plans for AmLaw 100 and regional law firms through her company Rainmaker Trainers, and was also a marketing manager for an AmLaw 100 law firm.

Prior to this new role, Goldstein served as a regional vice president at Special Counsel for over eight years, where she worked directly with in-house clients to increase operational efficiency, reduce risk and decrease their legal spend and costs. She will remain on the Diversity Committee at Special Counsel, and North American Diversity Council for The Adecco Group – two groups which she has been a member of throughout her tenure – continuing her commitment to promoting a diverse legal field.

"Lisa has an incredible track record of not only helping our clients achieve their business goals, but also helping them to be more inclusive work environments and expand their diverse hiring practices," said Amanda Ellis Cuban, senior vice president at Special Counsel and Parker + Lynch Legal. "We’re looking forward to seeing what Lisa does next as she continues to expand her influence in the legal industry in her new role."
