What People Are Saying

“David was an incredible resource in my placement.  He provided valuable guidance on each and every stage of the process, including substantive insights into the company’s legal department, the interview process, and evaluating the company’s offer.  Most importantly, David maintained an open line of communication with me, which was particularly beneficial as it resulted in my receipt of real time feedback as the process progressed.  David and his team were prompt, professional, and brought to the table a unique understanding of both the company and market.  I enthusiastically recommend David and his team.”

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.

“I was a Partner as a Top 100 Law Firm. I wanted to move in-house but to work somewhere that was a good fit both professionally and personally. David achieved that result. From the first time I met David until my acceptance of the offer to become General Counsel, David provided perfect guidance. David was professional, understanding, knowledgeable, and, most importantly, honest. David and I worked together to navigate a lengthy and extensive interview process. David continuously updated me about the process and provide excellent advice. David is an excellent recruiter and advisor and all-around great guy. I highly recommend David and his team.”
