December 16, 2014 – Albany, N.Y. – As the New Year approaches and attorneys strategize their next career moves with hopes of annual salary increases and holiday bonuses in mind, Tully Rinckey PLLC will send thousands of letters out to virtually every practicing attorney in Albany, NY, Syracuse, NY and Washington, D.C. The letters outline the firm’s business plans as it begins a “speed interviewing” process in an effort to continue to grow its footprint and service offerings to clients statewide and nationally via its Washington, D.C. office.
“It is a direct, bull in a china shop style approach, but that has always been our approach to hiring in the Albany market,” said Mathew B. Tully, Founding Partner of Tully Rinckey PLLC. “It is end of year bonus season and we know firms throughout the country are always looking to do more with less. Many law firms are stalled right now. Some have seen revenues decline over the past several years. I want to talk with attorneys about how our approach has helped us continue to grow and how our plans for expansion might align with theirs,” Mr. Tully said. “We want to make sure they receive the message directly from us that Tully Rinckey PLLC is the best firm for litigation-minded attorneys who are looking to take their practice areas to the next level.”
Once letters land in recipients’ mailboxes, Mr. Tully and key members of his management team plan to blitz each market in what can only be described as a high energy round of “speed interviewing.” Attorneys from Albany, Syracuse and Washington, D.C. who respond to the firm’s letters will rapidly move through face-to-face meetings with Founding Partner Greg Rinckey and Chief Operating Officer Graig Cortelyou.
“The idea is to immediately expose potential attorney new hires to the firm’s top decision-makers,” said Mr. Tully. “We want candidates to quickly receive a sample of our culture and personalities. We also want to engage in frank discussions about revenue and professional goals so we can all determine if we are serious about moving forward. This method of hiring is illustrative of the way we do things at Tully Rinckey PLLC – fast, efficient and unrelenting.”
