Quaero Group, a well-known, trusted partner for high-level attorney recruiting in the legal industry, announces that it has reached a 10-year anniversary in business. This is a significant milestone for this leading attorney search and recruitment firm that is the go-to for Chambers USA-ranked Partner & Shareholder attorneys. Quaero Group has maintained a reputation as the top choice for partners and practice groups looking to make a move in the legal industry, with well over 100 reputable lawyers placed nationally over the past decade.
Seasoned entrepreneur Patrick Moya launched the legal recruitment firm in the summer of 2011. Looking back on Quaero Group’s early stages, Moya commented, “At the beginning, we did everything [law firms and in-house searches] because I was just trying to eat, and now we have streamlined our recruitment process and take the time to tailor our searches.” Quaero Group’s business successes include over 90 recruitment deals in major cities across the United States, making it a powerhouse on a national basis for BigLaw attorney staffing needs. Through Quaero Group, Moya has placed Chambers USA-ranked Partners in various practice areas, including Corporate/M&A, Commercial Litigation, Labor & Employment, Real Estate, White-Collar & Government Investigations, Healthcare, and Intellectual Property. The firm has been directly responsible for opening new offices for law firms ranging from AmLaw 100 & 200 to mid-sized & boutique law firms. Reflecting on how Quaero Group helps law firms source the best of the best legal talent, Moya stated, “At this point, I have refined where I can really help and where I have the most fun. It’s challenging. It’s sophisticated and cerebral. We really can influence the bottom line of the firm by placing outstanding attorneys that generate revenue.”
As a business leader and head of the Quaero Group, Moya has served in elected positions for the following non-profits and trade organizations: Denver Active 20-30 (DA2030), a non-profit that raises $1.0M+ annually for disadvantaged youth; Rocky Mountain Association of Recruiters (RMAR); National Association of Legal Search Consultants (NALSC); and the National Association Personnel Services (NAPS).
Quaero Group’s reputation in the legal industry and the continuous success of the firm means room for future growth. While continuing to work with AM Law 100/200 and boutique law firms, Quaero Group intends to extend its services to recruit the top talent in transactional law, with a particular interest in venture capital and private equity attorneys. The firm will continue to secure high-level placements in its strategic markets and have plans to add new recruiters to the company in 2021. Due to client demand, the firm’s main goal is to expand its team across the country, with particular attention to Chicago, the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, and Southern California.
With a decade now behind them, Quaero Group is focused on the future as they expand into new cities and push to reach more significant milestones with their candidates and clients.
