LONDON (March 2018) — Taylor Root, one the world’s largest specialist legal recruitment organisations, is proud to collaborate with the Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC), a global legal association representing more than 43,000 in-house counsel in 85 countries, as part of the ACC Executive Recruiter Program, which supports the ongoing career development of in-house lawyers across the globe.
Through this program, lawyers who are placed by Taylor Root into an in-house role will be offered a complimentary six-month ACC membership. Participation in this program will give new members the opportunity to connect with fellow in-house counsel locally and worldwide, access ACC educational resources, and attend in-person and virtual CLE/CPD accredited programs. ACC will also provide additional concierge services to this group of in-house lawyers as they navigate their new roles.
Ben Cockram, Associate Director leading Taylor Root’s participation in the program, commented, “Taylor Root has always been passionate about developing the careers of the lawyers we place, and this program continues our commitment. We are delighted to collaborate with ACC on their Executive Recruiter Program. Having had a close relationship with ACC through our sponsorship of conferences and events around the world for a number of years, the next, natural step was to bring together the largest specialist legal recruiter and the world’s largest association of in-house counsel, on a program that adds immeasurable value to the development of our candidates, and their careers. We are sure this will be a long standing, and fruitful collaboration for both ACC and Taylor Root, but more importantly, for the people we place.”
“The ACC Executive Recruiter Program enables us to welcome newly placed in-house lawyers to the world’s largest community of corporate counsel,” said Robin Grossfeld, ACC Senior Vice President & Chief Global Membership Officer. “We are excited to collaborate with Taylor Root to further connect corporate counsel worldwide to one another and to the vast menu of resources for those who are new to in-house to the seasoned general counsel.”
