HCMC Legal Named On 2017 List of Largest Legal Staffing Firms in the US by Staffing Industry Analysts
August 18, 2017 – HCMC Legal, Inc. (“HCMC”), the parent company of Hire Counsel and Mestel & Company, is ranked number two on the 2017 list of Largest Legal Staffing Firms in the US by Staffing Industry Analysts (“SIA”). The list, developed by SIA, is based on temporary staffing revenue and does not include direct hire, retained search, and temp-to-hire conversion revenue. As such, Mestel & Company, which specializes in permanent attorney placement and strategic consulting, proudly recognizes the efforts and accomplishment of its sister company, Hire Counsel, a national leader in temporary legal staffing and eDiscovery services since 1993.
The list is shared with and valued by the global buyer community seeking to work with new staffing companies. SIA estimates that eight firms generated at least $25 million in US legal temporary staffing revenue in 2016. Together, these firms generated $0.5 billion in such revenue, accounting for 50% of the market.

“We are proud to be included by SIA in this elite group of national legal staffing firms,” said Joan Davison, President and Chief Executive Officer of HCMC. “It’s wonderful to be ranked as one of the largest legal staffing firms in the nation. However, our top priority is not to be the largest, but rather the best. With our unique structure, HCMC is able to leverage the strengths and resources of both our temporary and permanent legal recruiting businesses, allowing us to provide premier legal services and strategic consulting to our clients as well as career opportunities and guidance to our candidates.”
