From a client service perspective, Carpenter Legal Search is excellent! They placed a high priority on our search and presented a highly qualified slate of candidates on the timetable that met the needs of our business. Carpenter Legal Search is current in market trends and gave us valuable insights. We had the benefit of their candidate network, developed over many years, and it allowed us to broaden our search very efficiently. They were well-organized, and we were very pleased with the overall process. Highly recommended!
