Don’t waste your time with other recruiters, especially ones from out of town. Elina truly knows the market and can find a needle in a haystack. Wish I had met her earlier. Would have saved so much time and frustration. She found the perfect place for me when others couldn’t.
Elina is fantastic. She has a unique ability to connect the right lawyers with the right firms, not only from a technical expertise perspective, but also in terms of finding the right personal and cultural fit. I have dealt with a number of recruiters in the course of my career, for personal searches and as part of firm hiring teams, and she was by far the best in terms of understanding my needs and goals and identifying firms that represented the best opportunities — both for me and for the firm. I recommend her highly.
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.
