Erik Greupner
Senior Vice President & General Counsel, currently with San Diego Padres
“I am excited to see Mainspring Legal’s Bridgeline Solutions under Craig Brown’s leadership. As an Associate General Counsel for a Fortune 50 corporation, our M&A demands were high, especially with transition services. Craig and his team consistently brought us top-notch, long-term, temporary solutions — often over the weekend — so our complex integration needs were successfully completed on-time and always with 25-50% in cost-savings.”

Dauna Williams
former Associate General Counsel, Lehman Brothers
Cadence Counsel had the skill and instinct to understand what I needed and who would fit into our culture. They zeroed in quickly on high quality candidates, and we are very pleased with the General Counsel that we ultimately hired through their efforts. I would recommend Cadence Counsel for an attorney search without reservation. ”

Ken Stebben
CEO, currently with Stebben & Co.
Cadence Counsel recently placed me as the new General Counsel at a publicly traded company in Northern Virginia. They combined first-class professionalism with a gracious personal touch throughout the recruitment process. Their vast knowledge of the in-house counsel market, and responsiveness to calls and emails was of huge value to me throughout the experience. I am now in a GC role that is a great fit for my background and that I am enjoying immensely. If and when the time comes for me to move on to a new opportunity, my first call would be to Cadence Counsel.”
