This episode is a must listen for anyone involved in thelateral recruiting process, especially those in decision making roles. Steve’s Rules dives into the Lateral Partner Questionnaire (LPQ) which has become a cornerstone element of the recruiting process. As lateral recruiting has continued to gain prominence as an essential element of many firm’s growth objectives the need to accurately evaluate a potential partner’s likelihood of success becomes critical. And increasingly the LPQ is a cornerstone of the overall pre-hire diligence for most firms. Every firm has some form of LPQ it has evolved over the years. With such a bespoke approach there is no uniformityto fact gathering and candidates can often find themselves answering multiple LPQs if several firms are courting them. The process is repetitive and often fails to provide firms with the information needed to make the right decision on hiring a candidate. Recently the National Association of Legal Search Consultants has developed a uniform LPQ it believes will help firms better leverage best practices for the diligence element of lateral partner recruiting. Super recruiter Steve Nelson from McCormick Group has closely reviewed this new form and he has notes. We also discuss some of the intangibles that need to be considered that are simply not covered in any LPQ. Finally, Steve offers to email his own short form LPQ he has developed to any of our listeners who send him a request. As always, we welcome your input and are interested inhearing from you what topics you would like covered in further episodes of Steve’s Rules.
