We have extensive experience in the General Counsel market, having worked on senior searches since we were first established in 1989. Due to the depth of our relationships within the General Counsel community and our strong reputation, we are able to transact General Counsel search assignments swiftly and effectively, through an extensive market mapping exercise and also accessing our network of General Counsel clients and senior lawyers we have worked with.
