What People Are Saying

I’m just about two months into my first in-house position after almost 10 years as a “biglaw” associate. I couldn’t have wished for a better fit. Fortunately, Mary Clare knew my new employer well enough to know a good match when she saw one, and she made sure that I had a chance to prove her right.

She was fantastic during every step of my transition. She answered my questions about the position and about the company—promptly and substantively. And, importantly, she did a fantastic job preparing me for the interviews.

I learned a couple of valuable lessons in this process—go with a recruiter that takes the time to know the company, and that the company trusts. Mary Clare obviously has earned my employer’s trust.

“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.”
