The biggest benefit of engaging Carpenter Legal Search to recruit top legal talent is results! CLS placed two attorneys with us with the necessary skill sets and the fit I was looking for, and they are tremendous additions to our Legal Department. The challenges I faced were timing and seeking to fill two roles concurrently, and CLS understood the pressure to fill the positions expeditiously and worked diligently to get us through the process successfully. I highly recommend engaging CLS as my experience with was positive on all fronts: responsiveness, timeliness, level of due diligence and understanding what I was looking for candidate-wise. I think the personal approach that Lori Carpenter has, her vast network, and CLS’ attention to responsiveness sets CLS apart.

In terms of what I believe separates the search firm from so many others is the fact that from the outset of search, the team was there to answer and support all of my needs. The firm provides superb coaching and preparation at all stages of the executive search and was available at just about all hours of the day to help me through the rigorous job selection and interview process. I would highly recommend anyone seeking to make a move to utilize the expertise of the firm.
