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 rainmaking, recruiting, and leadership and has written over 250 articles on these subjects. He has been quoted in the Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Bloomberg, The American Lawyer, Above the Law, Law360, the Huffington Post, Business Insider, and dozens of business publications. He is the author of Why They Follow: How to Lead with Positive Influence and The Recruiter’s Adventure Book. He is a popular speaker on leadership and client development topics at business conferences and has keynoted at large legal recruiting conventions, sales meetings for legal recruiting firms, and nearly every trade association in the recruiting industry. His most recent book, Rainmaker Confidential, coauthored with Henry Devries and Mark Leblanc, will be released in the summer of 2021.
Love’s expertise is further evidenced by his work as an expert witness in the recruiting industry, including a successful jury trial related to legal recruiting, and opinions related to law firm partner compensation.

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.
