The Prime Legal Story

We are your legal staffing experts. At Prime Legal, we specialize in the placement and recruitment of lateral attorneys, practice groups, law firm mergers and acquisitions, permanent paralegal and legal secretary placement. We also specialize in temporary and temp-to-hire placements including high level in-house counsel contract assignments.
No matter your area of interest or expertise, we have helped candidates make their next career move and partnered with organizations to fill the position they needed the most. The quality of our work on para-professional and support positions is just as important as our attorney and partner searches. We proudly serve our candidates and clients in all capacities within the legal industry.
We are honored to be a part of The Richmond Group USA, which is celebrating 50 years in business. Our partnership with an established and successful top global recruitment firm combined with our expert legal market knowledge promises a customer experience like no other in the industry.
With a Richmond, Virginia home base we support the legal community through business sponsorships with the local associations of Legal Administrators and Paralegal Association in the markets we serve as well as partnerships with State Bar Association, and Women in eDiscovery.  As a result, we remain close with the clients and candidates in each of the markets we serve, facilitating our success.
