The Standard in Attorney Search and Placement
At BCG Attorney Search, we are committed to diversity. Our company understands that society is comprised of a variety of individuals with unique backgrounds, genders, nationalities, religions, orientations, beliefs, personalities, experiences, skills, talents, and perspectives. By welcoming, embracing, and celebrating diversity, we strengthen our company, our clients, and the legal profession.
We seek to create a working environment at BCG in which tolerance, respect, and professionalism are paramount. We want every employee to feel comfortable and to be inspired to work hard, to be the best he or she can be, and to make the greatest contribution possible. We understand that many law firms have similar goals, and we do our best to honor these goals in connection with our legal recruiting efforts.
We believe that equality of opportunity is important as a principle, but we also appreciate that it is in the best interest of our company and the law firms and attorney candidates we serve. We thrive when we look past superficial distinctions and concentrate on the underlying merits of each person. In contrast, we limit ourselves and our potential when we narrow our vision.
BCG's commitment to diversity is a manifestation of BCG's commitment to excellence. We know we are better, stronger, and more effective when we value differences and work collectively to pursue first-class service, unparalleled work product, and outstanding results.

We've all heard a story like this: a motivated, highly successful (generally female) associate at a top-tier law firm earns a reputation for being the ''go-to'' associate in her department, earns rave reviews for her work, and is on the fast track to partnership. Then she has a baby, takes a maternity leave, and returns to work full-time, convinced she can balance it all. However, shortly thereafter, reality sets in—she realizes that balancing a successful career while raising a child is practically impossible to achieve. READ MORE >
Q. I am a corporate attorney with good credentials. I went to a top local law school, graduated with honors and I work for a respected mid-sized firm. I like my work, but I feel overwhelmed by the demands and how little personal time I have. In short, I would like to reduce my hours. My firm has accommodated lawyers in other practice areas who have requested a part-time schedule, but up until now I have been afraid to broach the subject with the partners at my firm. Part-time seems like an option that has only been granted to working mothers and I am neither a parent nor female. How do I make a case to my firm to allow me to work part-time? Are there any firms that might hire me on a part-time basis. READ MORE >
The struggle to balance career and family is not a new problem, but one that many employers have recently started to address and implement policies about. These changes are no longer an administrative annoyance, but are being recognized as actually adding value to firms and giving them an edge in a competitive environment. Obviously, having two working parents in a household is not uncommon, nor is single-parent support of the family-it is becoming the norm. Individuals need to find time for responsibilities outside of work. Therefore, it is important that firms address their level of commitment to institutionalizing and publicizing support for alternative work schedules. READ MORE >
