Experience and Expertise

Our clients include family offices, privately-held companies, private equity firms, investment banks, and national and multi-national publicly-traded companies. We also partner with highly-regarded boutique law firms. We can recruit your first in-house lawyer, build your entire legal team, or help your 100+ lawyer legal department add to its bench. While most of our clients are Texas-based, we have filled positions around the United States and as far away as Europe, the Middle East, and Asia.

Founded in 2006 in a small office above a Western wear store in Houston, Pye Legal Group has grown to three offices and a team of nearly 15 people.

Each of our recruiters has years (in most cases, decades) of experience in recruiting as well as prior careers as attorneys or paralegals. We talk to lawyers and paralegals every single day, following them from the early years of their careers to the most senior levels. We are legal industry experts with an unparalleled professional network and access to legal talent.

Pye Legal Group recruits for both direct hire or “permanent” positions as well as providing short-term and long-term temporary staffing of attorneys, paralegals, and contracts managers.

Why Pye?

Values you can trust

Pye has completed thousands of placements, a record of unparalleled success that underscores our recruiting expertise. But our achievements are not just about what we do. They’re also about how we do it, a performance that is rooted in five core values:

EXCELLENCE. We set a higher standard in recruiting.

  • We are a team of expert recruiters who had successful executive and legal careers before joining Pye. That experience, combined with a network of personal contacts and our deep knowledge of the market, makes Pye an essential, results-driven partner.
  • We have made a significant investment in our proprietary database and in subscription-based resources. That ensures a more efficient, more effective search process that finds the right recruits for the right jobs.

INTEGRITY. Our principles are unwavering.

  • Honesty, confidentiality, and discretion are integral to our work. We never submit resumes without a candidate’s authorization or recruit for positions without a client’s consent.
  • Our firm is an active member of the National Association of Legal Search Consultants, a professional organization dedicated to ethical and professional recruiting.
  • Our character is demonstrated by the number of candidates who later became our clients, and by the number of clients with whom we have long-term relationships.
  • We bring the same attention to detail, work ethic, and responsiveness to recruiting that we brought to our prior careers.

SERVICE. We make your life easier.

  • Our streamlined recruiting process speeds the time to hire.
  • We attract and place top candidates, so you avoid the internal loss of productivity that often accompanies a hiring process.
  • In-depth research, in-person interviews, and skill assessments are all part of our screening process.
  • You can be confident we will find candidates with the skills and personality that fit the job requirements and your culture.

INNOVATION. Expertise that never rests.

  • Most recruiters only see the market as it is now. But we also see where it’s going – trends, shifts, developments, movement – and target candidates that can help you today and tomorrow.
  • By staying one step ahead, we deliver high-value information and insight to clients that enable them to seize opportunities.
  • Rather than relying on stale evaluation tools, we complement our recruiting expertise and personal contacts with an innovative approach that finds candidates with unique or unexpected qualifications.

TEAMWORK. Collaboration that multiplies our impact.

  • Because Pye promotes teamwork instead of competition, our consultants and administrative personnel collaborate on each search. You get the benefits of our entire team’s knowledge, insight, determination, and attention.
  • We see each search as a strategic partnership between you and Pye. This promotes trust, unity of purpose, and shared goals, yielding a stronger pool of candidates and the best possible hires.
  • We build long-term relationships with our clients. We believe strongly that our job is not done when your new hire reports for work.
