INTERMEDIATE & EXPERIENCED LAWYERS

The next step in your legal career!

 

So, you’ve spent the past few years sharpening your legal skills and finding where your passion lies within legal practice?

Are you considering the next step in your legal career and trying to figure out how to best document your skills and experience in a legal resume?

The resume of an intermediate or experienced lawyer is very different to that of a law student or legal graduate. You will have industry experience you can draw from, but the challenge remains of how to articulately incorporate your skills and experience into a well-crafted document.

As an experienced lawyer, your focus will be on communicating your experience within the practice areas and matters you have been exposed to and have worked on, with well cited examples of the skills drawn from those experiences.

You may quite well be the perfect legal document drafter, however, drafting a legal resume is a skill set that you may have not quite mastered.

The legal jobs market for an intermediate or experienced lawyer is still highly competitive, especially in terms of mid-tier or top-tier law firms.

If you’re wanting to ensure you’re articulately and concisely presenting your skills in a persuasive context, then leave it to our professional and experienced legal resume writers who not only understand the legal industry but have worked in the legal industry to draft you the perfect professional legal resume.
