Chris was awesome. He helped me sort out my options of law firms since I wanted to be less involved in deals, team and firm management, and do more of what I wanted to do while slowing down. It’s been a great succession plan.
I found and read Chris’ book Lateral Moves and from there Chris held my hand in a tough situation and helped me land in a wonderful law firm for me and my team.
I’ve worked with other headhunters at other times. I’m really glad this worked out with you particularly. It’s been really special working with you and getting to know you.
Chris has a long term and holistic approach to recruiting. Instead of simply trying to fill a vacancy, he looks beyond the resume and the job description. Chris told me my energy would fit the culture of my current company. And he was right! Chris has made a huge impact on my career. Now, I tell other lawyers about The Lion Group, even if they are not currently looking to make a change.
I didn’t understand the lateral move process. After talking to Chris and learning my options I was able to land at another law firm that allowed complete freedom, flexibility and doubled my compensation.
My wife and I just had our first child and wanted to move back to Columbus Ohio, from Chicago. Chris made it easy.
I was using internal resources to source for another attorney. Chris and The Lion Group reached out offering to help. He understood the type of candidate I wanted and introduced several, relevant passive candidates that would not have otherwise been on my radar. When we were sure we had identified the right candidate, Chris helped close the deal that all involved felt good about.
After trying 3 other headhunters with no success, a friend finally referred me to Chris. During our first conversation, Chris said “I know I’m not just helping you find a new job, I’m helping you find a new home. He truly took it to heart and made me feel like I was the only lawyer he was working with.
