About Lateral Hub

Lateral Hub is a simple yet powerful concept: a job board for top-tier law firms and lawyers that provides an efficient way to lateral.

The reasons to lateral are compelling: more recognition, better compensation, attractive culture. But without Lateral Hub, lawyers looking to make a lateral move cannot easily see which firms are hiring. Discovering openings requires visiting each law firm’s website, texting former colleagues and classmates, calling a search firm, or even contacting your law school career services office for extra help.

When you finally find the opportunity that seems perfect, you must perform a series of unnecessary tasks, like typing out your resume again into the online application or creating an account on the firm’s website.

Top-tier firms generally have little success getting quality candidates through their own websites for all the same reasons that candidates find it difficult to identify job openings. Law firms rely on expensive search firms to identify candidates, eating away at the firm’s resources and recruiting budget.

Enter Lateral Hub.

We partner with top-tier law firms to post their lateral openings on Lateral Hub. Unlike many other legal job boards, we are not a search firm and we do not scrape job posts from firm websites.

• Candidates can easily browse and filter lateral openings at top-tier firms and apply directly in seconds.
• Law firms can hire candidates directly, saving on expensive recruiting fees and gaining wider exposure for their lateral openings.

Simple and easy.

Our member law firms include AmLaw-ranked large national and international firms as well as highly regarded boutiques and midsize firms.
