Chief Growth & Integration Officer
As Orrick’s Chief Growth & Integration Officer, Merrie Post plays a key role in driving Orrick’s growth strategy. She is passionate about helping the firm source top talent focused on the tech & innovation, energy & infrastructure and finance sectors globally. And she’s equally passionate about helping candidates understand and assess how the Orrick platform can advance their career trajectory.
Merrie supports candidates through each stage in the recruiting conversation. She also ensures that every lateral partner who joins Orrick has a committed sponsor and an actionable plan for business and social integration.
Merrie brings to this work a deep understanding of the legal market, and in particular, the lateral partner recruiting market, compensation and integration. Over the course of her career, she has helped hundreds of partners make successful moves. She previously led Hudson Gate Legal, a search firm, where she focused on partner-level searches. Prior to that, she served as Director of Attorney Development at Cadwalader. She began her career as a corporate associate at Debevoise.
When she’s not talking to top legal talent, Merrie can be found on a spin bike, visiting a great spa, taking a hip hop class, traveling and spending quality time with her husband, Jason and sons, Charlie (age 9) and Alex (age 6).
