Building Capacity Through Talent

At John and Snyder, we are experts at guiding tax-exempt organizations through the process of hiring and onboarding their first in-house General Counsel and other senior subject matter experts. We start by listening to learn how your organization thinks about risk. We take a systemic approach to cultural assessment by meeting with leaders, board members, and key stakeholders to deepen our understanding of an organization’s strengths and the new talent needed to build on those strengths. Once hired, we remain at the new leader’s side as coaches throughout the onboarding process. Our approach to your leadership development needs sets us apart in the field, evidenced by our 100% success rate on tax-exempt leadership searches.

Growing the Team

Once a hired candidate has settled into their new role, we work with them and their organization to develop a strategy to increase internal capacity to meet the growing demands of an increasingly complex governance landscape.

Whether bolstering support for routine commercial contracts review, empowering fund managers with dedicated investment management counsel, or adding senior tax expertise, our clients leverage our experience and extensive networks to grow and support their in-house legal teams.
