Hire an Esquire has been innovating the way legal professionals work since 2011. We reinvented legal staffing with a proprietary online platform that analyzes a candidate’s experience and expertise to best match them with contract and permanent positions at law firms and legal departments of all sizes - the first system of its kind.
