Retained Search Solution

J-A Group provides a retained search service for senior and challenging legal roles. We recognize that these positions must be recruited with the utmost confidentiality. As your partner, we are committed to delivering the desired outcome regardless of how long it takes.

Benefits of retained legal search include:

Dedicated Recruiter:

In a retained legal search, the company has a dedicated recruiter who is focused solely on finding the right candidates for the role. This allows for a more thorough and in-depth search and helps ensure that the best candidates are identified and evaluated.

Customized Search:

Our recruitment firm works closely with the company to understand its specific needs and requirements and conducts a customized search to identify the best legal candidates for the role.

Guaranteed Results:

In a retained legal job search, the search firm typically guarantees that it will find the right candidate for the role, or the company will receive a refund of its retainer fee.


Retained legal searches are often conducted on a confidential basis, which can be important for companies that don't want their search for top legal talent to become public knowledge.

Exclusive Access to Top Candidates:

In a retained legal search, the search firm has exclusive access to top candidates, including those who may not be actively seeking new opportunities.

Reduced Risk:

Retained recruitment searches reduce the risk of a bad hire, as the hiring company is presented with the most qualified and vetted candidates.

Reduced Workload:

A retained recruitment search can reduce the workload for the hiring company, as the search firm takes care of the initial screening and assessment.

Direct Headhunting:

Retained searches focus on direct headhunting which can be effective in bringing passive candidates to a company. Passive candidates are those who are currently employed and not actively looking for a new job, but they may be open to new opportunities.

Contingency Recruitment Solution

Contingency recruitment is a type of recruitment service where the recruiter is only paid a fee if they successfully place a candidate in a job. In other words, the recruiter only receives a fee if the hiring company hires a candidate that the recruiter has presented.

The benefits of contingency recruitment include:


Contingency recruitment is often less expensive than other types of recruitment services, as the recruiter only receives a fee if they successfully place a candidate. This can be an attractive option for companies that are looking to recruit top talent but are working within a tight budget.

No Upfront Fees:

With contingency recruitment, there are no upfront fees, so companies can start their recruitment process without having to make a significant investment, but this can also be a negative.

Access to a Wide Pool of Candidates:

Contingency recruiters have access to a large pool of candidates and can present multiple qualified candidates to the hiring company. This gives the hiring company a wider selection of potential candidates to choose from, increasing their chances of finding the right candidate for the job.


Contingency recruiters work on a fast-paced and competitive basis and are motivated to find the right candidate quickly. This can be especially beneficial for companies that are looking to fill a critical role, or that need to recruit top talent quickly.
