Legal, Risk, Compliance & Government Affairs
Trusted advisors for today’s challenges

General counsels are expanding their influence within organizations, setting the moral direction rather than simply implementing it. Risk and Compliance officers are being elevated to deal with heightened concerns around data security and regulations. And Government Affairs experts are increasingly needed to help companies solve cross-border challenges.

Top performers within these critical roles anticipate changes and move quickly to not only protect the business but put it in a position to thrive. Our global team understands key legal and regulatory issues, as well as the differentiating attributes that separate successful leaders. Leveraging our diagnostic tools and longstanding relationships with diverse talent across industries, we help clients hire trusted internal advisors with the skills to propel an organization forward.

We are a champion of diversity with a proven track record of placing women and people of color in LRCGA roles.
