Alay Yajnik: Actively Staffing Up Your Law Firm

In this episode, Steve Fretzin and Alay Yajnik discuss:

  • The biggest errors law firms make when hiring. 
  • Leveraging your network to grow your firm (not just your business). 
  • Vetting the candidates that you bring into your firm. 
  • Hiring quickly in the current war for talent. 


Key Takeaways:

  • You do not need to settle for your hire. Working with a recruiter is often worth the money as it saves you time and resources in looking for that new hire. 
  • Ask open ended questions when you are interviewing to dig deep into the credibility of your candidate. 
  • Check the references – this is one of the most underrated aspects of hiring. 
  • Always be hiring and always be looking for talent. 


“Right now, there’s a big demand for legal services, but there are not very many attorneys to go around. Firms that don’t get out ahead of this quickly find themselves buried with work. And when you’re buried with work, it impacts your ability to hire because you just don’t have enough time.” —  Alay Yajnik
