You hit a home run! …. The several partners you successfully represented to Winston & Strawn are all first-rate, and will play an important role in the growth of our new L.A. office”. You have done a fine job.”
Esquire Inc. has been consistently ranked in the top echelon of attorney placement. Since 1991, the firm has placed more than 800 partners throughout the United States with an emphasis in California. Esquire has facilitated nine mergers and played a key role in either starting or finding core groups of partners for new offices- including King & Spalding; Alston & Bird; Baker & Hostetler; Winston & Strawn; Orrick; Greenberg Traurig; Perkins Coie; Barnes Thornburg; Lewis Brisbois and Blank Rome.
“Esquire hit a home run” said James Thompson, former four-term Governor of Illinois and Chairman of Winston & Strawn on handling the moves of several key partners for the new Los Angeles office. “An outstanding job in facilitating the merger of Hosie Wes Sacks & Brelsfold” with Perkins Coie said Robert Giles, managing partner of Perkins Coie on the new S.F. and Silicon Valley offices. “Your professionalism and adherence to confidentially were most important” wrote Timothy Scott, former litigation chair at Sidley & Austin on Esquire’s representation of he and his group to King & Spalding (Silicon Valley M.P.). “Your highly effective representation of me is consistent with the three partners you previously placed.” wrote Mark Wine, M.P. and I.P. Chair at Orrick, Herington & Sutcliffe in Orange County. Robert Lewis, founder and chairman of Lewis Brisbois commented on the 90+ partners and seven law firm mergers Esquire handled over two decades. “Esquire may be the most professional and effective legal search firm I have ever dealt with”.
Our recruitment focus is California, although we have handled the moves of partners/groups in Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, Las Vegas, New York City, Phoenix, Seattle, Washington D.C. and Florida.
