Special Counsel: Showcasing a streamlined new look for a multifaceted set of solutions.

Since the inception of Special Counsel in 1987, we’ve continuously evolved from our foundations within the legal industry. We’ve become a full-service leader of legal talent and technology solutions with a global footprint, and we have a big announcement! While we’re still the company our clients have known for years, our image has undergone a facelift. We’re proud to announce a newly designed brand, streamlined new website, and intuitive reorganization of our service offerings.

Why the change? From the beginning, our core strength has always been as an industry leader in temporary legal placements and document review. However, over the last three decades, technology and our clients’ needs have evolved- and so, too, have we. Our legal talent recruiting efforts resulted in over 1,500 placements last year, many of which were permanent placements including attorneys, partners, retained search and specialized technology positions– a significant transformation over the last several years. Our clients frequently ask for advice on industry trends, projections and strategy- seeking broader insights and customized, creative and increasingly technology-centric solutions to their challenges. We’ve become experts and innovators at harnessing eDiscovery technology and pairing it with our extensive network of colleagues and candidates to offer our clients comprehensive managed reviews, expert legal talent, and a full suite of dynamic solutions.

As we evaluated our goals and identity, we realized our branding no longer represented the comprehensive suite of solutions Special Counsel had become. This realization spurred the launch of a year-long initiative to develop a brand that truly reflected the organization as our clients, internal consultants and external candidates experience it, streamlining our offerings and bringing purpose and perspective to our website.

To that end, we’ve reformulated our structure into the four foundational pillars upon which Special Counsel stands: Legal Executive Recruiting, Legal Consulting Solutions, Technology and eDiscovery and Legal Talent Placements. Here’s how each will henceforth be presented:

Parker + Lynch Legal: Legal Executive Recruiting

Parker + Lynch Legal is the attorney recruiting division of Special Counsel, specializing in recruiting law firm associates and partners, in-house counsel and retained search.

EQ: Legal Consulting Solutions

EQ is the legal consulting division of Special Counsel, delivering innovative solutions in IT & cybersecurity, data analysis, information governance, managed review, and more.

D4: Technology and eDiscovery

D4 is the technology and eDiscovery division of Special Counsel, specializing in delivering exceptional, flexible and innovative eDiscovery solutions and managed services.

SCI: Legal Talent Placements

SCI is the legal talent recruiting division of Special Counsel, specializing in recruiting legal support professionals and legal tech specialists for contract and direct-hire positions, as well as contract attorneys.

The transformation into these four distinct divisions provides an opportunity for us to approach our clients’ needs holistically; unifying all aspects of Special Counsel’s expertise and resources and meeting the legal industry where it’s headed geographically, technically and functionally.

What does this shift translate to in real terms? For starters, we’ve launched a brand-new website that showcases our modern, streamlined new look. You’ll also find all of our offerings broken down into an intuitive categorization for easy navigation. Partnering with Special Counsel means you have access to all the talent, technology and resources at our disposal. Whether your project requires unique technical expertise, large size and bandwidth within a short turnaround, an exceptionally qualified candidate, or you just need a partner who has worked with thousands of clients and is adept in the industry- Special Counsel is here for you.

What’s new is our look, our website, and our streamlined structure. What has never changed is our commitment to our clients and team, our drive to innovate and our forward-focused vision for the future. This new look is true to who we are and what we do each day; we love the flexibility of our new branding and hope that you do, too! Take a look at our refreshed site to explore not just the new design, but also the way all of our offerings formulate comprehensive end-to-end solutions. With a depth of highly specialized expertise, we go beyond talent insights to partner with our clients on accomplishing their most challenging business goals of today and tomorrow.
