FOREREACH: to move forward while
heading into the wind
Providing strategic solutions to Lawyers, Law Students & Legal Service Providers to give them a competitive edge and move their practices forward
As some employers are taking a more conservative approach to student hiring due to economic uncertainty, it is more important than ever for law students to access expertise that can give them a competitive advantage. ForeReach Consulting offers one-on-one sessions to position law students for success, whether they wish to practice at a firm, a public employer, in a corporate setting or if they are still undecided about their career direction.
There has been significant lateral movement in the legal industry in the past year. The war for talent has generated many opportunities for lawyers considering a career change. For some, this may mean switching to a different practice area, changing employers, moving to in-house, government or not-for-profit, or stepping away from practicing law entirely. ForeReach Consulting provides one-on-one strategic sessions to support lawyers with the transition to the next step in their career path.
