New York, March 24, 2017
SJL Shannon, a leading legal talent management consultancy, has reimagined its brand and its business future. As of March 27, 2017, SJL Shannon will change its name to Volta Talent Strategies, reflecting the company’s ongoing evolution and growth.
Sang J. Lee, CEO of Volta says, “Our new tagline says it all: ‘Change is the only constant.’ The business environment for law firms and professional services has changed dramatically in recent years. And, the pace of change is accelerating with the increased implementation of advanced technologies. Our rebrand reflects our commitment to embracing these changes and supporting our law firm clients and their lawyers at every turn.”
SJL Shannon was created by Ms. Lee in 2013, when she acquired The Shannon Group (formerly Shannon & Manch), the industry leader in lawyer talent management, with offices in Washington, DC, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and Philadelphia. Over the past four years, the company has continued to grow. It now boasts an impressive team of former law firm partners and lawyers, professional development and HR experts with advanced degrees in law, organizational dynamics, organizational psychology, human performance management, and human resources. With a thirty-year legacy, Volta leverages its knowledge, experience and expertise to bring fresh ideas and innovative solutions to attracting, developing and retaining legal talent. The name Volta, which has various meanings, was inspired by the Italian word for a “turn” or an “inflection” and is also the term used to describe a dramatic or rhetorical shift in poetry. “Our choice of the name Volta reflects our passion for coaching, training and advising lawyers at the different turning points in their careers, and consulting with law firms as they deal with the shifts taking place in the legal services industry.”
