How we help our lawyers

The Bar List has an impressive national client base, which we serve through our extensive contacts in the legal community. In addition to our corporate and government clients, we represent most mid- to large-size law firms in Lagos, Abuja and Port Harcourt, as well as national firms and specialized boutique law firms. For lawyers, we identify the best legal opportunities available to fit with each person’s specific personal and professional career goals. Presently, our services are provided at no cost to lawyers. Our fees are paid exclusively by the employers we contract with to perform a search.

Our experience, dedication and trustworthiness is what sets us apart. We are there for the duration of the interviewing process. We prepare attorneys for the interview process and educate them as to available opportunities that match what they may be looking for. We always seek a candidate’s permission to approach a client about a particular job and never present curriculum vitae without first obtaining the specific prior approval of the lawyer. If there is mutual interest between a client and a candidate, we promptly facilitate the interview process until either a successful match is made or one party decides that it is no longer interested in going forward. We are there to ease the emotional and practical considerations involved in job changes.

We handle both temporary and permanent lateral lawyer placements. We are also able to assist new law school graduates. We generally work with new lawyers from the law school, who graduated at or near the top of their classes.

If you are interested in using our services, please e-mail us a copy of your curriculum vitae. All inquiries are held in the strictest confidence. Due to the tremendous volume of curriculum vitae we receive, we will only contact those lawyers for whom we believe we have an appropriate position.
