In-House Opening in China at Leading Internet / Social Media Company

Written by Evan Jowers   
Friday, September 13, 2013

We currently have a very exciting and rare type of in-house opening in China at one of the world’s leading internet and social media companies. Our client is looking for an IP Transactional / TMT / Licensing attorney with 2 to 6 years experience. The new hire will be based in Shenzhen or Shanghai. Mandarin is not required (deal documentation will be in English) but is preferred. A solid reason to be in China and a commitment to that market is required of course. This new hire will likely be US qualified (but could also be qualified in UK or other jurisdictions) and with experience and training at a top law firm’s IP transactional / TMT practice and could be currently at a law firm or in-house. Qualified candidates currently Asia based, Europe based or US based will be considered. The new hire’s supervisors in this technology transactions in-house team are very well regarded US trained IP transactional lawyers, with substantial experience at Silicon Valley firms. The culture and atmosphere in this in-house group and the company in general is entrepreneurial, team oriented, and the work is cutting edge, even for a cutting edge industry. The upside of being in an important strategic in-house position in this fast growing and world leading internet company is of the “sky is the limit” variety. Its a very exciting place to be in China for a rising IP transactional lawyer in our opinion, for many reasons beyond the basic info we can share here in this ad / post. This is a special A+ opportunity.

So Now You Have an Interview: The Phone Screen

Written by Jack Hopper   
Wednesday, June 19, 2013

So, you have been presented to a prospective employer, and have been invited to interview.  Now what?  A simple question, right?  The answer is both yes and no.  Having worked as a legal recruiter for 15+ years, I never assume anything when it comes to preparing a candidate for an interview.  It is folly to assume that even the most experienced professional will interview well, without proper “woodshedding” beforehand.  Perhaps self-servingly, I would submit that interview preparation is one of the many benefits of working with an experienced legal recruiting professional, as the old maxim applies here, “the lawyer who represents himself has a fool for a client”.  In the course of this two-part article, I will share with you some anecdotes over the years which underscore this fact and give you tips on how to ace your screening interview.

Let’s start with the phone screen, our focus for Part One of this article.  Increasingly, in this fluid legal market, where clients are searching out of city or state for highly credentialed candidates, we see the use of phone screens in advance of an in-person interview.  At this point, you are probably thinking, “what could be so difficult about a 30 minute phone screen?”  In theory, that is true.  However, like an in-person interview, the success of this phone call will depend as much on how you connect with the interviewer on a personal level, as with your substantive abilities.  There is a presumption that you are substantively sound, as you have been selected for the interview based on the skills, experience and academics contained in your resume.  Of course, the lead work, timing and manner in which your candidacy is presented, something Kinney Recruiting excels at, is a tremendous advantage as well.  But that’s an article of its own, for another day.

Kinney Expands Expertise into Professional Legal Staff Recruiting

Written by Chris Miller   
Wednesday, May 22, 2013

Kinney Recruiting has recently expanded its team to include support for the placement of professional legal staff in markets around the country.  Shelley Logan joined the Kinney team in Dallas to spearhead the expansion of our recruiting and staffing services to include paralegals, legal secretaries, office administrators and other legal professionals.

In the past, clients have requested our help in filling these positions, and we were able to accommodate such needs on a one-off basis.  However, the continuously growing legal job market both in Texas and throughout the United States has resulted in the need for a dedicated professional staffing division within Kinney Recruiting.

We have been very fortunate to recruit Shelley away from Southwest Airlines, where she served in a wide array of positions for 12 years.  Since joining as the head of our professional staff division, Shelley has been inundated with jobs from around the state and has been very busy sourcing high quality candidates for our clients.  We are now in a position to assist with virtually any job opening within a corporate legal group or law firm, and our clients are happy to have one source for all their staffing needs.  The new division will provide the same high level of service and market knowledge that Kinney Recruiting is known for in its attorney recruitment practice.

If you are a candidate or client, we would be happy to discuss our professional legal staff recruiting services at any time.  Please  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it to set up a call and learn more about what we can do for you!
