Sang Lee is the CEO of Volta Talent Strategies, LLC, a national management consultancy that is focused on the legal sector, and also the Founder and Owner of SJL Attorney Search, LLC, a NYC-based legal recruiting company that is consistently ranked one of the city’s premier legal talent companies. Interested in leveraging her industry knowledge and broad-based insight into the legal market, Sang also recently launched jurdu.com, a digital community for lawyers (and future lawyers) that she hopes will revolutionize hiring practices in the legal industry.
In each endeavor, Sang brings her passion for helping lawyers and law firms connect, thrive and develop. With over two decades of experience in the industry, Sang has established herself as a go-to advisor on every aspect of legal talent management for AmLaw 200 firms and other sophisticated legal-sector employers. Her expertise has made her one of the industry’s most highly regarded executive coaches and consultants for law firm managing partners and practice group leaders. She speaks at law firm partner retreats, bar committee programs and legal-sector panels, as well as at conferences run by major industry organizations. She is currently writing a book that explores intersectionality and leadership. Sang is a graduate of Stuyvesant High School, Brown University and Georgetown University Law Center.
Born in Seoul and raised in Queens, New York, Sang attributes her strong entrepreneurial spirit to her immigrant roots and family culture.
