For immediate release-
Washington, D.C. – Legal E, Inc. is proud to announce the opening of its new DC office at the intersection of Connecticut Ave & K Street, NW. This is the latest step in Legal E’s continuing expansion of its presence within the local legal community.
Jeanette Derby, the President and Founder of Legal E said: “The opening of this new office in Washington, D.C. reaffirms Legal E’s commitment to this important market – an area of key strategic focus for us. It will enable us to provide our clients with the strengths of our professional recruiting platform, combined with local market expertise.”
“I am pleased to welcome the head of Legal E’s DC Office operations and our new Legal E Team member, Janice James, who recently joined Legal E as an Executive Director of the Contracts & Special Projects Division”, continued Jeanette Derby.
"Janice James is a top veteran in the legal staffing industry. We could not be more proud and excited to have Janice join our Team heading up our Contracts Division," says Jeanette Derby. Janice joins the Company with over 20 years of experience in the areas of recruiting, human resources, and benefits administration in the Washington legal market. Most recently, she was the Human Resources Director for Spiegel & McDiarmid LLP, where she was responsible for benefits administration, paralegal and support staff, all aspects of human resources management, and recruiting.
"I am thrilled to be back in the legal staffing industry,” says James. "I have been a loyal client of Legal E since its inception and have admired the company's business model. My position at Spiegel & McDiarmid allowed me to reacquaint myself with law firm culture, technology, and recruiting trends in the legal industry, but now it is time to return to my first love which is the agency side of recruiting and staffing." Prior to her tenure at Spiegel, Janice spent 12 years in the recruiting industry where she provided law firms, government agencies, corporations and non-profit organizations with temporary and permanent placement of attorneys, law clerks, paralegals and support staff. "Janice is armed with a broad brush of experience on both sides of the recruiting desk. We are looking forward to her bringing a great source of energy, enthusiasm and a fresh approach to our organization," says Derby.
Together with the Legal E Team, Janice will focus her efforts on building the DC office presence, managing large contract attorney projects, and further developing full-service contracts of paralegals and support staff. "With legal staffing on the rise again, this is the perfect venue and opportunity for me to expand on the solid foundation and excellent reputation that Legal E has already established," says James.
