Special Counsel Richmond

Special Counsel’s Richmond office provides temporary staffing, temporary-to-hire placement, and direct hire search and placement of attorneys, paralegals and legal secretaries to a wide range of clients, including international law firms, mid-size boutiques and corporate legal departments. While principally serving clients in and around Virginia’s state capital, our Richmond branch also works closely with a broad spectrum of clients along the Atlantic corridor—including Virginia Beach and Chesapeake—as well as in the growing urban districts of Northern Virginia.

Richmond is home to six Fortune 500 and five Fortune 1000 companies, the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond, and four of the largest law firms in the United States—and we have maintained successful working relationships with each of these legal industry partners.

Our core strength lies in placing highly skilled candidates in leadership roles within law firms and corporate legal departments. We also routinely provide teams of seasoned document reviewers to help our clients complete their projects—large or small—under crucial deadlines and tight budget constraints. In addition, we consistently help our clients find experienced paralegals and legal secretaries on short notice.

  • Contract, contract-to-hire and direct-hire services
