About Us

Oceanic Partners, Inc., based just north of Boston, focuses on the recruitment and placement of Partner and Associate Level Attorneys, primarily in the Corporate, Intellectual Property and Real Estate practice sectors.  The firm was founded in 2002 by John L. Gerweck.  John holds a BS in Business Administration and an MBA, both from Babson College in Wellesley, MA.  John’s former partner and mentor was Robert Smith, Assistant Dean of Attorney Placement at Duke School of Law.  Applying our broad practical experience in legal recruiting and career management services, we offer a full range on in-depth, personalized career services to assist and support attorneys seeking to advance within their present organization or firm, or to secure a new position.  Oceanic Partners, Inc. is successful because unlike staffing firms or other legal search firms, we focus solely on permanent attorney search and recruitment.
