How to Hire Attorneys and Staff with Dominic Grew

In this episode, Alay and Dominic discuss: 

  • Attracting the right talent when you can’t afford to pay them top salaries. 
  • Advantages of a smaller law firm.
  • Separating yourself from the competition in the war for talent. 


Key Takeaways: 

  • Finding talent is similar to finding clients – people will come to your firm because of what you do and what you represent. 
  • Smaller firms could offer more control over the work environment, less bureaucracy, a different culture, and even more fun. 
  • The reason you hire employees is for them to help you – keep that firmly in mind. Employees should allow your job to be easier and more fun. 
  • There are creative ways to look for job candidates. Consider posting video content, especially one with captions, because it will capture the attention of more people.
