HOUSTON, TX – (March 30, 2015) – Warren Recruiting, a boutique legal search firm focused on the search and placement of lawyers in Texas, is pleased to announce its expansion with the acquisition of MS Legal Search, a 20-year attorney search firm that has placed hundreds of experienced attorneys with law firms and companies in Texas and around the world.

 “We are thrilled to announce Warren Recruiting’s growth with the acquisition of MS Legal Search,” said Morgan Sheinberg Warren, Founder of Warren Recruiting. “This acquisition allows our firm to further expand our presence as a dominant player in the in-house legal recruiting market, and brings with it more than 25 years of industry experience from MS Legal Search founder Elaine Makris Williams, who will continue on as a member of our team.”

An accomplished lawyer, Morgan Sheinberg Warren graduated from The University of Texas School of Law and began her career as a lawyer practicing at some of the top law firms in the nation including Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP in Houston, King & Spalding LLP in Houston and Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP in New York City. During her years practicing law, Morgan was involved in recruitment and found she had a passion for making the right connections. Her role as a lawyer, combined with a decade of legal recruiting, enables her to uniquely connect with both candidates and clients, truly understanding the goals of each and identifying the right opportunities that will turn into lasting careers and relationships.

Elaine Makris Williams also graduated from The University of Texas School of Law and began her career practicing law with a top Austin law firm. She relocated to Houston and joined a Texas-based legal recruiting firm, where she became a principal and owner of the business. Elaine subsequently founded MS Legal Search in 1995 and developed a strong reputation for in-house legal placements.
