Audrey Golden Associates was founded over 50 years ago and has established itself as the pre-eminent international legal search firm. With a professional recruiting staff of over 34 highly experienced recruiters, most of whom are attorneys, our organization has been sought out by leading law firms of every size in the United States and throughout the world to fulfill their particular and often sophisticated recruiting needs.

We meet these needs through individual or group placement, or by way of merger or through the use of temporary employees. Candidates seeking to move their practices also find that our recruiting professionals and support staff fully appreciate the personal and discreet nature of any career change. Accordingly, mindful of these personal considerations, our recruiters engage the candidates in thoughtful dialogue and collaboration based on their extensive and intimate knowledge of the candidate’s legal disciplines, the law firm “marketplace” and the particular law firms being considered.

AGA recruits for and consults with AmLaw 100 and 200 firms and is a trusted advisor to countless partners, counsel and associates, and to law firm management. AGA’s recruiters maintain long-standing personal relationships with leading practitioners in all practice areas, including corporate, real estate, intellectual property, litigation, environmental, trust and estates, healthcare, labor and employment and tax law, to name a few. As a result, our recruiters offer an in-depth understanding of both the law firm’s and the candidate’s needs. It is through this understanding that we form lasting and mutually beneficial relationships.

Whether you are a law firm partner, counsel or experienced associate, or in-house counsel, seeking to make a change, or a junior associate looking for the best place to advance your experience and career, our team of recruiting professionals is perfect for you. Our established relationships and “inside” knowledge of the legal community and major firms enable us to make insightful recommendations that benefit candidates and clients alike.
