Aberman’s track record proves she will play an integral role in continuing to establish Lucas Group as the premier recruiting firm for attorneys in the greater Chicago region.

Lucas Group, North America’s premier executive recruiting firm, announced the expansion of its Chicago-based legal practice. Carolyn Aberman, J.D., joins the firm as its new Managing Partner for Legal Recruitment.

Amberman practiced law for more than a decade in the greater Chicago area before transitioning to legal recruitment in 2011. She is well known for her consultative approach and expansive network.

“With two decades of combined experience as a practicing lawyer and successful legal recruiter, Carolyn Aberman has a deep understanding of Chicago’s legal marketplace,” said Steven Lynch, GM Legal. “Aberman’s track record proves she will play an integral role in continuing to establish Lucas Group as the premier recruiting firm for attorneys in the greater Chicago region.”

Before joining Lucas Group, Aberman served as Legal Recruiting Director at the Partners Group (f/k/a Plante Moran Staffing), where she counseled and advised mid- to senior-level attorneys about conducting productive job searches, including assistance with resume drafting, business plan development, and social media networking. Aberman’s deep understanding of her law firm and in-house clients’ needs paired with her willingness to dig deep to find the best fit candidates have made her the trusted, valued legal recruiter she is today.

“Changing firms or moving in-house is not a career decision to be taken lightly,” says Aberman. “It is a careful, intentional process built on trust. I take pride in conducting searches with the utmost discretion and careful adherence to the current legal marketplace and internal firm dynamics.”

Aberman is the former Managing Director of McCormack Schreiber Legal Search. Previously, she served as Assistant General Counsel at the Brunswick Corporation. She practiced for seven years in the Corporate Restructuring Department of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP.

Aberman received her JD from the Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law and graduated cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania. She is a member of the American Cancer Society Taste of Hope Leadership Council, a member of the American Bar Association, former board member of First Defense Legal Aid, and has been active with the Turnaround Management Association and the Women’s Insolvency & Restructuring Confederation.

In addition to Legal recruiting, Lucas Group specializes in Accounting & Finance, Human Resources, Information Technology, Manufacturing, Military Transition and Sales & Marketing recruitment. Taking pride in the professional growth and career advancement of its associates, Lucas Group provides clear career growth opportunities together with the industry’s most sophisticated onboarding and ongoing educational programming.
