Elina did a spectacular job in assisting me in finding a new partnership position. She suggested the firm with which I accepted the position and guided me through every step of the process. I felt that she had the confidence and respect of the firm as well. Throughout the process, I believe that she had my best interests at heart which differs her from many other recruiters. I would recommend her to any other partner looking to move firms.
“Elina is heads and shoulders above others in her field. Her service is very personal, she is involved at every step and keeps you informed about every conversation and development. She is highly respected, and gives you credibility with the people you are talking to. And I have never worked with someone more responsive.”
As managing partner for a top international firm Russian practice, Elina is our “go-to” recruiting professional. She is highly professional, highly motivated, and always finds and closes the best partner-level talent in the market!
Whether you are a law firm or a lawyer, Elina really adds value to the recruiting process. I recommend her highly.
In my two years of experience witnessing Elina’s work as a legal partner placement professional, she has impressed me as a thoughtful and reliable recruiter who does her best to ensure that firms’ are presented with appropriate candidates, and vice-versa. She is sensitive to the needs and expectations of both sides and works to facilitate a match only when it appears beneficial for both sides.
As the head of a large practice group in my firm, I work with the top recruiters in New York and elsewhere seeking lateral partner talent. Elina and her team consistently ranks at the top among our placement agents not only for their successful placements but for their impressive reach among law firms. Importantly, Elina takes pride in her honesty and pragmatic approach towards recruiting and will always establish realistic parameters around hires to ensure that expectations are met. We have the highest regard for Elina and will follow her wherever she goes.
Elina is an exceptional recruiter, smart, connected and diligent. She is always at the top of our list for specific needs, and has gained a powerful reputation for delivering results from partners at all levels of the firm, from the Chair to firmwide practice section leaders.
