What People Are Saying

“Having managed many searches as General Counsel and COO of a growing FinTech firm, and now having launched my own firm, I hold Mary Clare and David in the highest regard among recruiters that I have worked with.  Their deep understanding of talent, as well as the needs of in-house teams handling highly sophisticated mandates, shines through at every juncture.  I have greatly enjoyed their professionalism and market savvy, am pleased to have worked with them, and look forward to building on that experience in the future.  I certainly recommend them to anyone seeking premier recruiting services.”

Melissa impressed me as a recruiter. After having inquired about a particular position posted through Princeton Legal Search Group, Melissa promptly reached out and we started to have a larger discussion about the prospect of making a move. She absorbed our conversations and kept an eye out for fitting opportunities. Her diligent manner led to a couple of options soon thereafter, one of which I was initially skeptical. Melissa diplomatica lly advised me through the process and kindly persuaded me to interview with both options because “[I] may be pleasantly surprised.” She set up interviews promptly.  And sure enough, I was indeed pleasantly surprised… and still am.  The process was swift, productive, careful, and effective. Melissa understands timing, strategy, discretion, and execution. I highly recommend her!

“Melissa is a winner! I was looking for a new role that was not exactly related to my past experience, and she took the time to get to know me and the type of position that I desired. It is clear that she has the right instincts, and she did a wonderful job of keeping me informed throughout the search and interview process. I give Melissa my highest recommendation without reservation.”
