Legal, Compliance & Regulatory (LCR) Practice

In a complex global business environment with increased scrutiny around governance issues and stringent regulatory demands, recruitment of world-class general counsel and senior in-house lawyers is critical.

Over the past two years, the LCR Practice has conducted more than 500 legal search assignments for clients around the world.
