At Zerega Consulting we are focused on a single goal: meeting our clients' and our candidates' hiring needs. We're a results-oriented company specializing in one-on-one, relationship based recruiting.

If you aren't growing in your current position, it might be time to explore other opportunities. 


The legal industry is a relatively small network of connected professionals so it's imperative that your search is handled with the utmost attention to confidentiality.


Over the last 19 years, we have earned the trust and respect of Managing Partners and Recruiting Professionals across the globe.  We are available to you as a resource, an advisor and as a trusted professional. We will help guide you through your search, every step of the way.

It can be difficult to find the perfect person to join your legal team; the hiring process is complex and requires time and due diligence. As an attorney, your time is crucial.


We take a holistic approach to our job searches by learning as much as we can about your practice area and the culture of your organization.  We then strategize and utilize our global resources to identify and present qualified, prescreened candidates in a timely manner. 


Generally, we work on a contingency-based fee agreement however, we will consider retained searches.
