Who We Are:  

Bliss Lawyers is a new legal model combining the benefits of two innovations -- secondment and virtual firms.  Since our founding in 2011, the business has expanded to service clients across the country, from New York to California.  With a national network of over 20,000 lawyers, we hire exceptional attorneys to work on engagements for in-house legal departments and law firms.  Due to increasing demand and fluctuating staffing needs, Bliss' business has grown to also offer clients the luxury of "extended interviews" where attorneys start on a temporary basis to ensure they are a good fit prior to the client hiring them directly as permanent employees.  Bliss also handles more traditional direct hire placements.  A virtual platform allows us to pass considerable cost savings on to our clients while providing generous pay packages to our employees.  Bliss Lawyers is a certified majority women-owned business.  We are committed to creating a diverse workforce and we are proud to be an equal opportunity employer.
