(AUSTIN, TX) November 14, 2008 – Amicus Search Group, a Texas-based attorney search firm, today announced it has been recognized by the Austin Business Journal in its annual list, “Executive Search Firms” as the largest legal-only executive search firm in Austin. Amicus Search Group was also recently recognized as the largest legal only search firm in both Dallas and Houston in two similar lists.

“With today’s announcement, Amicus Search Group has been effectively identified as the leading attorney-only search firm in each of the three largest legal markets in Texas” said J. Lee Allbritton, Jr., Founding Principal of Amicus Search Group.

Amicus Search Group places attorneys with law firms and corporate legal departments throughout Texas and the nation. Fueled by increased demand, Amicus Search Group has recently expanded its client services with the founding of two sister companies, Amicus Solutions and Amicus Consultants. Amicus Solutions provides project attorneys and non-attorney legal staff to a variety of legal employers, while Amicus Consultants provides merger and acquisition advisory services and the development of strategic growth plans for a wide range of sophisticated law firms. With these additions, the Amicus family of companies grew its client services team by over 30% in 2008.

The Houston Business Journal and Dallas Business Journal lists rank each firm on the number of placements reported in their specified metropolitan area. The Austin Business Journal list ranks firms by total executive search fee revenue. Each of the lists are initially published in their publications’ weekly editions, but will also be republished in each city’s annual Book of Lists.
