How To Identify Which Firms To Target

Whether you are conducting informational meetings or searching for job opportunities, you will need to identify which law firms to target in your search.  One tool for doing so is Martindale-Hubbell, which provides a listing of law firms and practitioners in various geographic areas.  The directory may be accessed at http://www.martindale.com/.  You will find that it includes information about the firm itself, including a sampling of clients and practice areas, as well as more specific biographical information about each member of the firm.  You should note, however, that because there is a significant fee to be listed in Martindale-Hubbell, some small firms and solo practitioners forego the expense and are not listed.  As such, although it is a wonderful resource to identify target firms, it does not include every firm or practitioner in the area.  Nonetheless, it is a wonderful starting point to assist you in identifying the key firms in your target market.
