Candidate Testimonials


"The Partners Grouper listened to my wants in an ideal law firm and presented me with the opportunities that matched that criteria.  They were responsive to my questions and provided insight into each firm.  I cannot thank them enough for their hard work and helping me land with an excellent law firm."

ERISA Associate, Alston & Bird

"The Partners Group was great to work with.  My individual recruiter was very helpful and professional.  She was knowledgeable about the company and the position.  She communicated very clearly and was available to answer any questions."

Senior Counsel, OpenText  

"I recently worked with The Partners Group who placed me in my current position. They were great in every way. Throughout the interview process, my recruiter continually provided me with information about the company and position, as well as keeping me informed about where the employer was in their interview and decision making process. When an offer was extended, my recruiter was very helpful in negotiating the salary and conditions of employment making the process as quick and painless as possible. Finally, and most importantly, when it came to making my decision about the offer she was great to speak with, helping me weigh the pros and cons of the new position and moving my family to a new state. Though it was in her best interest for me to accept the offer, I felt like she was helping me make the decision that was in my best interest instead of pushing me to make the decision that would have served her own interests. In short, I enjoyed working with my recruiter (and The Partners Group in general) and I would not hesitate to recommend their  services, they were outstanding."

Vice President of Tax and Deputy General Counsel, Webb Creek Management Group

"I highly recommend The Partners Group.  I’ve worked with a lot of recruiters in my career and they are head and shoulders above all of them.  My recruiter kept me well-informed throughout the entire process and a constant line of communication between me and the employer. She was able to answer all of my questions quickly or coordinated with the company to get me the answer. The best part of working with my recruiter is the fact she is an attorney, she understands the legal field and the transition from a firm to an in-house position. She also found me the perfect match for my career and a company that I have been able to make an immediate impact with based upon my experience and the company’s needs. If you ever have a chance to work with The Partners Group, I can guarantee it will be a great experience."

Senior Corporate Counsel, FirstKey Homes

Legal Counsel, OpenText

"The Partners Group did an excellent job in recruiting me for and facilitating my hiring as an in-house corporate counsel.  My recruiter very politely reached out to me and accommodated speaking to me based on my willingness and availability. I wasn't keenly interested in the roles she had available at the time, but I did express to her what I would be interested in. She told me she wouldn't reach back out to me until she came across something that she thought would fit what I wanted. Unlike many recruiters, she held herself to that, and many months later reached out to me with a position that I thought was perfectly tailored to my interests. She did an excellent job of facilitating the interview and hiring process on both sides, and I couldn't be more thrilled with her guidance and consultation through the process. I'm now in a role that makes my daily work life a happier experience, and I have her to thank for that."

My recruiter was the leader of the team that provided me with all of those elements. Her team at the Partners Group was service oriented and reaffirmed my belief that I made an informed and well-researched decision in finding a new law firm.

They truly listen to your goals, and provide you with the right tools and contacts to make them happen."

"Not only did The Partners Group approach me with a position that was perfectly suited to my skills, personality, and interest, but they also worked closely and carefully with me as I made several life-changing decisions in a fairly short time-frame. My recruiter provided me with candid and clear advice at every step along the way, and proved to be a reliable and invaluable resource and sounding board about the many factors that informed my decision to move my practice to a new firm and a new city. She very quickly earned my trust, and that trust has grown as I've continued to get to know her. I will always be grateful for The Partners Group's guidance during my work and life transition-- my recruiter's professionalism, warmth, and straightforwardness are all reasons why I cannot recommend their services highly enough."

Christopher Gilmore, Corporate & Securities Associate at Womble Carlyle Sandridge & Rice, LLP

"When The Partners Group first contacted me about an in-house opportunity, I was not looking to leave my (then) current employer and was not exploring the market. But they offered up a position that was intriguing and perfectly suited to my skill-set, with a management team that was a good cultural fit for my personality and temperament. My recruiter adroitly navigated me through the process, offering sound, pithy advice at each stage of the process and serving as a sort of consigliore to me as I faced a career-defining decision to walk away from seven years of working at law firms in D.C. and Atlanta and join the in-house ranks. It goes without saying that my recruiter sealed the deal. And I offer up my endorsement of The Partners Group without reservation or hesitation."

Senior Counsel and Assistant Corporate Secretary, OCI Enterprises, Inc.

"I was particularly impressed by The Partners Group's ability to match my experience with the perfect opportunity – and I was not even looking. I simply dub my recruiter the job-matchmaker-extraordinaire. I was always in awe of my recruiter's art form responsiveness, transparency and professionalism throughout the recruiting process. Oh, and they made sure to check in with me during my first week at the new role. Talk about following through! The Partners Group certainly earns my highest recommendation."

Director of Legal, Marketo

"The Partners Group is great to work with. They helped me with two career moves. First, they helped me move from New York City to Atlanta. I had an associate position at a national firm in NYC, but they did not have an Atlanta office. I was looking for a similar position in Atlanta. I spoke to a number of recruiters, some based in NYC and others operating out of the Southeast, but it was very clear that The Partners Group had the most knowledge and best connections in Atlanta. Through their recruiter, I got an associate position at a top Atlanta firm. A few years later, I began looking for a long term position at a smaller firm. Of course I called The Partners Group and they helped me get what I was looking for, an associate position at a regional firm. Overall, I've had great experiences with The Partners Group and I highly recommend them."

Senior Associate at Morris, Manning & Martin, LLP

"Working with The Partners Group was a positive experience from the initial conversation to placement in a dream position. Not only was The Partners Group able to deftly align my experience and unique skill set with a top firm in my desired market, but they also found the right personal fit for both me and the firm. Unlike many legal recruiting firms who make generic cold calls to candidates, my recruiter took the time to understand the hiring firm's needs and confirm that my experience, knowledge and skills met those needs. My recruiter then facilitated a fast-paced interview, placement and relocation process. I hold The Partners Group in the highest esteem and strongly recommend their services.”

Rebecca Merrill, Associate at McKenna Long & Aldridge

"The Partners Group is fantastic! I first worked with my recruiter from The Partners Group when I was looking to make a move from a large firm in Chicago to a small firm in Atlanta, and my recruiter could not have made the process any easier. Several years later, I jumped at the chance to work with that same recruiter from The Partners Group again. Their recruiters are knowledgeable, responsive, and are always honest and objective. My recruiter responded to my questions and concerns. I would recommend The Partners Group to anyone looking to make a change!”

Brenna Clark, Associate at Sutherland Asbill & Brennan

"I wanted to give The Partners Group a huge THANK YOU. Your group is professional, but more importantly they have been a wonderful resource in terms of legal employment advice and the industry generally. The market is complicated and having The Partners Group on your side makes the process seem doable. Thanks for the hard work, couldn't have done it without you!!!!”

Ben, Associate at AmLaw 200 Firm

"After moving to Atlanta from the West Coast, The Partners Group immediately took me in and helped integrate me into the Atlanta legal market. My recruiter listened to my goals and utilized their strong network to find the perfect place for me. Rather than send my resume to firms all over the city where I might fit in, they successfully and strategically sent my information to firms where I would fit in and where I could make meaningful contributions. Everyone I worked with or encountered at The Partners Group was professional and friendly. I would work with The Partners Group again in a heartbeat, but because it did such an excellent job of matching me with my new firm, I won't need to.” 

Associate at Litigation Boutique

"The Partners Group was the best choice to handle my search. I was in the unique position of transitioning not only from an in-house role back to a law firm but also, from Asia to the United States.

This, along with their market knowledge and experience, made The Partners Group an effective and trusted advocate of my practice.”

Brad Markoff, Of Counsel at Mitchell Silberberg & Knupp

"The Partners Group is a top-notch recruiting firm that I had the pleasure of working with for over two years. Shortly after meeting with their Director of Attorney Recruiting, I was placed at one of the leading law firms in Atlanta. After working with that law firm for two years on various temporary projects, The Partners Group assisted me in securing a permanent job offer with that law firm. Throughout the entire engagement, The Partners Group was responsive to all of my needs and I never felt like I was ‘just another candidate.’ I give The Partners Group my highest recommendation and encourage any attorney contemplating a job change to meet with them.”

Eric P. Chapman, Associate at AmLaw 200 Firm

"I had a great experience working with The Partners Group. I had always been interested in transitioning to an in-house position, but as a litigator, knew my opportunities were limited. However, my recruiter identified an in-house opportunity and took the time to make sure that the position was a potential match with my skills, experience, and career goals. They consistently kept me up-to-date throughout the process and offered great insights, which allowed me to put my best foot forward during the interview. After I had an offer, the recruiter provided advice that assisted me in making a smooth transition from my firm to my new position. From the outset, I found The Partners Group to be courteous and responsive, and I was very impressed with their commitment to ensuring that the position was a fit for me, not just that that my skills and experience fit the position. I can wholeheartedly recommend Brad and The Partners Group.”

I highly recommend The Partners Group to any attorneys searching for a legal job in the Atlanta area or elsewhere.”

Litigation Associate at Greenberg Traurig

"I had the pleasure of working with The Partners Group in a lateral attorney move. My recruiter was very knowledgeable, incredibly responsive, and ultimately served as a wonderful resource in making a lateral decision. I never felt pressured to make any decision and genuinely felt like they were truly trying to help make the best decision possible--even if that decision resulted in me staying at my former position. I highly recommend The Partners Group to anyone who is considering a lateral move.”

"After deciding to leave government employment for private practice, I contacted The Partners Group after a colleague recommended them. I am very glad I did.

I would highly recommend them to anyone.”
