Legal Staffing Solutions was founded by Robert
C. DeLena, Esq., one of the most successful legal placement consultants
in the country. Mr. DeLena became a legal placement consultant
after practicing law for several years with Testa, Hurwitz & Thibeault,
LLP and Peabody & Arnold. He is a graduate of Northeastern
University School of Law, Trinity College and Governor Dummer Academy.
He has made placements with every major Boston law firm; law firms
in smaller New England markets; law firms in New York, Washington,
DC, Chicago, Atlanta, Charlotte, San Francisco/Palo Alto and Los
Angeles; investment banks based in Boston and New York; and companies
throughout New England.
As a corporate attorney, Mr. DeLena worked on transactions with other
top law firms, investment banks, venture capitalists and companies.
Because he has spent time conducting due diligence reviews, drafting
memos and compliance documents, attending drafting sessions and closings,
as well as spending his share of evenings at the financial printer,
he fully comprehends the work, hours and politics faced by client-candidates
on a daily basis. Furthermore, because Mr. DeLena made a lateral career
move from one law firm to another, and ultimately, a career change
himself, he understands the difficulty in weighing career choices.
Understanding a client-candidate's reasons for considering a job
change is pivotal in order to present alternative employment options
which will ultimately satisfy the client-candidate. Certainly, understanding
the merits of each opportunity available, including salary and benefit
issues, and ensuring a confidential and efficient interview process
are extremely important, but comprehending why a client-candidate
is dissatisfied is the most important task of a legal placement consultant.
- Why? Because the first question asked by any hiring official
is: "Why is this person looking for a new position?"
do hiring officials ask this question? Because there is a certain
underlying bias with every candidate seeking a new position
that the candidate is being asked to leave by his/her present employer.
- How can the concerns of a hiring official
about a candidate be overcome? By having your story told by a legal placement consultant
with a reputation for veracity and a heightened level of credibility
established by placing quality candidates.
At Legal Staffing Solutions, our reputation is on the line with
every candidate we recommend. If you are interested in exploring
certain options and want your candidacy viewed with an increased
sense of legitimacy, please contact us. Or, if you simply want to
