The qualities that distinguish Early Cochran & Olson in the marketplace include:

Specialized Search Expertise & Legal Knowledge

Our recruiters offer an average of more than 30 years of experience in legal recruitment. As a result, we understand the importance of hiring the right lawyer to deliver legal services within an organization.

This depth of experience also helps us better work with candidates to clearly identify their interests and match them with your needs. Our years of focus on doing legal search gives us access to an extensive network of contacts in the legal community and a perspective on how to attract the best legal talent to your company.

A Vast Network of Resources

Over the years we have developed strong relationships with hundreds of lawyers in corporations and law firms across the country. Our database is extensive, but we don't rely on it alone. Every search we do is customized to our clients' needs. Our process is designed to draw out people who are successful in their current position, not actively seeking a new one, but who can be convinced to consider a new opportunity when it is presented by an articulate agent.

An Intensive Candidate Screening Process

We work hard to really know both our client and the candidates we present to them in order to provide the best match for your business. We conduct a candidate screening process that is among the most detailed and thorough in the executive search field.

Our process helps ensure that you see only those candidates whose background, talents and goals are right for your organization.


We Find the Right Fit

We work to truly understand your business - its operation, structure and culture - in order to create successful client/candidate matches that stand the test of time.


We are consultative. We will provide frank, honest feedback in order to ensure that your search parameters are both realistic, in terms of what the market offers, and specific enough to attract the best candidates for your organization.


We work collaboratively, so you get our team's best thinking, not just one individual's candidate roster.

"Not only did Early, Cochran & Olson quickly identify strong candidates, more importantly they found us the right candidates. They developed a deep understanding of our needs and our culture. They established and maintained a strong connection throughout the process, always incredibly responsive."

~ Jason M. Mullens,

Chief Human Resources Officer,

Cetera Financial Group

And we see a search through to the end. We don't receive our final payment until the candidate has accepted your offer.


Personalized Attention

We offer personalized attention that the larger firms can't match, along with expertise that the smaller firms don't possess. You get the best of both worlds – individualized attention, supported by a collaborative environment that brings together the best minds of our expert team.


With Early Cochran & Olson by your side, you get peace of mind. We are your trusted advisors.
