Read the full case study:


A $2 billion global manufacturer of industrial power transmission products services the military, automotive, industrial and manufacturing sectors. Based in Ohio, our client maintains operations across the United States and abroad. Our client reached out to us on a Friday afternoon with an immediate need for an experienced contract attorney after one of their in-house attorneys unexpectedly gave his two-weeks-notice.

Our Solution

We leveraged our expansive candidate pool and our unparalleled connections within the local legal community to find the right attorney – with the right expertise for the role and the right personality for the company’s culture.

Outcomes / Highlights

By Monday morning, our client had a skilled contract attorney in their office ready to work.

The placement was such a success that our client asked Special Counsel to provide an additional contract attorney for direct hire. By using Special Counsel candidates, the client reduced the legal department’s outside spend by 50 percent. In addition, Special Counsel’s ability to provide experienced professionals on short notice allowed general counsel to manage the workload of the legal department without diminishing their ability to focus on the strategic goals of the company.
