Scott Love helps law firm partners mitigate risk and maximize opportunity when transitioning from one firm to another. He does this by understanding the nuance involved in high stakes negotiations, the algorithm required for an effective partner transition, and the delicate risks associated with complex career moves.

His street-smart savvy and extensive business acumen, coupled with over two-decades of unparalleled executive search experience, give an added element of security for partners who are considering a move to another firm.

Love is a prolific thought leader on the topics of recruiting, employee loyalty, and leadership having written over 250 articles. He is the author of the leadership book Why They Follow:  How to Lead with Positive Influence.  He is a popular speaker on leadership topics at business conferences (www.scottlove.com).

Love is a 1989 graduate of The United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. While serving on active duty as a naval officer, he held a Top Secret security clearance, was third in command of a U S Navy ship, and later served as a leadership trainer and organizational development consultant at the world’s largest naval base.

When he is not recruiting, speaking or writing, he enjoys painting with watercolors, golf, writing fiction, working on service projects with The Washington Rotary Club, performing as a stand-up comic, getting involved in street-level homeless ministry, playing in poker tournaments, and spending time with his family. Love is a board of directors member of the National Association of Legal Search Consultants, the National Speakers Association, and is past president of two recruiting industry trade associations.  He lives in Arlington, Virginia, and is married with two children, one hamster, and a puppy named Ruby.
