Lateral Link has proven to be an effective partner in our quest to attract talented lateral candidates, demonstrating that they understand our practice area needs and our historic strong commitment to hire the highest-quality associates available.”

Steven E. Sletten
Hiring Partner, currently with Gibson Dunn & Crutcher, LLP

I was not excited about the prospect of a lateral move. Lateral Link not only brought me focus, but their guidance made the process as painless as possible. While I always tend to be skeptical of headhunters, it quickly became clear that Lateral Link was not simply following random leads hoping for a hit, but they were being driven by a very clear vision for a specific move that actually made sense, based on research, a deep understanding of the law firm, and an appreciation for what it takes to be successful in the business of law. I feel very lucky Lateral Link was there every step of the way.

“Lateral Link was an excellent and effective resource during my transition from government service to private practice. She is tremendously knowledgeable and well-connected in the D.C. market. She was particularly effective in helping me package my government experience in a manner that would be most attractive to a top law firm. Shortly after speaking with her, she secured an interview for me with a top law firm, and provided excellent guidance throughout the interview process.”

We are very picky about the quality of attorneys who we hire and their cultural and strategic fit at Jenner. Mike always knows who we need and finds the right candidates.”
