A graduate of UCLA Law School, Gregg Ziskind practiced corporate, securities and real estate law in Los Angeles before he entered the virtually nonexistent legal search business. Joined by Michael Greene shortly thereafter, Ziskind Greene, with offices in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Orange County and San Diego, quickly became the largest legal search firm in California with over twenty recruiters before Michael Greene’s untimely death. Gregg was a founder of the National Association of Legal Search Consultants, served on its Board of Directors and as Chair of its Ethics Committee for a number of years and drafted its national Code of Ethics. He has written and spoken extensively throughout the nation on issues relating to lateral hiring and legal search.
Gregg independently co-founded Emplawyernet in the 1990s, an online based, venture capital financed entity, which applied emerging technology to the distribution of job and career development information to lawyers and the law firms, corporations and government agencies that employed them.
