Jeremy Thompson Named Director of Legal Recruiting and Placement in Austin

Thompson Will Place Latitude’s National Pool of Flexible Legal Talent in Substantive Contract (and Full-Time) Engagements

AUSTIN, TX (June 6, 2022) – Jeremy Thompson has joined Latitude as Director of Legal Recruiting and Placement in the company’s Austin office. In this role, Thompson will work with experienced attorneys, paralegals and other legal professionals in Texas and nationwide by matching them with corporate legal departments and law firms in substantive contract engagements and traditional permanent positions.

Before joining Latitude, Jeremy developed a diverse law practice, both in scope and geography. In Austin, he practiced first- and third-party insurance litigation as a partner in a midsize Texas based firm. Jeremy previously practiced insurance defense in a West Coast law firm before opening a real estate law practice in the Deep South. He was also a commercial litigator in what was, at the time, Austin’s oldest and largest law firm.

“Jeremy has been actively involved in the Texas legal community for years,” said Jeff Lilly, Partner at Latitude Austin. “His knowledge of the area’s legal market is a tremendous asset as he works to match outstanding candidates with sophisticated engagements both in Texas and nationwide.”

“There are many highly qualified attorneys and other legal professionals who want to experience more flexibility in their careers and continue producing meaningful work,” Thompson said. “I’m excited to share with them the many substantive high-end engagements that Latitude provides.”

Thompson earned his B.A. from the University of Texas at Austin and his J.D. from Chicago-Kent College of Law. He is licensed to practice in Texas, California, and Georgia.

Headquartered in Nashville, Latitude entered Austin in September 2021 under the leadership of Lilly, a former Am Law 100 Partner. The company has offices in ten major cities nationwide.
