The Third River

We believe in the Third River. We are committed to leading our business relationships to the prosperous source and most synergistic end. This parable is at the core of how we look a business, life and relationships. Read it for yourself and see which river you are on.

Our Experience

We place attorneys only and cover the United States but are more focused in the Midwest, the South and North East. We are very effective in uncovering top talent & leadership and find it one of our competitive advantages. We have placed in both corporations and law firms.

Our Commitment to the Employer and the Candidate

We are member of the National Association of Legal Search Consultants and abide by the NALSC Code of Ethics.

Our Fee Arrangement

Fixed fee

No one likes moving targets. Traditionally employers pay a percentage on the candidate’s first year compensation. We believe the extra and unnecessary cost to hiring the candidate is called the moving target. When attracting the candidate, employers should not have to worry about the incremental costs of creating an attractive offer.


Our clients sometimes prefer to pay the old fashion way (percentage of compensation). We are flexible and aim to create a win-win arrangement.


Depending on the assignment and/or client goal, we either recommend or consider such an arrangement. Our client’s top priorities are achieved when the three elements are present: 1) A unified purpose and focus 2) Primary decision makers are involved and 3) A financial commitment (i.e. skin in the game).
