His insights and experiences in the law firm Partner world, are resonating with Partner Candidates both junior and senior. Also proving invaluable as he assists companies in identifying the right talent.
Recent comment from a Partner that Andrew has successfully placed, with team, on a move that from start to finish/acceptance of offer, took 10 days:
"Thank you so much. You really have been my pillar of support this week, following my very distressed management meeting. You have been working so hard and I truly admire all your efforts."
