Special Counsel, the legal staffing and solutions unit of MPS Group, Inc., has acquired LawCorps, one of the leading full-service legal staffing companies in the eastern United States. This acquisition adds significantly to Special Counsel's client base and strength of personnel in the New York City, Washington, DC and Boston markets.

Founded in 1988, LawCorps was one of the first legal staffing firms in the country. It is highly regarded in the industry for its focus on client and candidate service, and its clients include a prestigious list of national and regional law firms and corporate legal departments.

"This transaction solidifies our position as the leading provider of full-service legal workforce solutions," said John Marshall, president of Special Counsel. "LawCorps has a tremendous client and candidate base, and we are very excited about being able to offer additional services, such as our dedicated document review facilities in Washington, DC and New York City and Concise, our Internet-based transcript summary service, to LawCorps clients. We also are pleased to welcome to Special Counsel the outstanding managers, business developers, and recruiters who have helped make LawCorps such as success."

Mr. Marshall added: "LawCorps has a well-deserved reputation for providing the right resource at the right time and for a high level of personal attention to clients and candidates. This focus on the client and candidate is a perfect fit with Special Counsel's culture, and our combined client base will benefit from the additional candidates and resources we can offer in these import markets."
