Chris has served as a recruiter for our Firm for several years. He has invested his own time to really get to know our Firm, its culture, and our lawyers. He has displayed both discretion and integrity throughout our relationship and I am happy to recommend his services.

We were a group of 7 and needed a new home for our clients. Chris made the process easy. Even though we came across conflicts and dodged a bullet or two, I am very happy with the results.

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.

Chris was structured, thoughtful and direct in his approach to sourcing candidates for our open position. He was timely, energetic and pragmatic during the search. I appreciated his candor and honesty when we were reviewing candidates. For me the most telling part of my relationship with Chris, is that he was a trusted partner and he fits in well within our culture (accountability, commitment and teamwork).

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.

New York Tax & Sovereign Wealth Law Partner

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 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.
