“Dan Hatch was critically important in successfully navigating my partner move, one that has certainly transformed my career. I feel very fortunate to have worked with him. It was obvious immediately that Dan’s approach is not born from a sales background, but from a successful legal career, having a variety of roles, including experienced lawyer, big law firm client, and now a top recruiter. He offered me sophisticated advice, which included significant knowledge of the market and industry, both local and national/global. He avoided the oft repeated sales platitudes about particular firms, and instead provided balanced perspectives on firms and opportunities. Although law firms are zealous about advancing their recruiting interests (and I know this well in my own recruiting – we are proud of our firm!), firms seem to know that partners trust Dan’s integrity, which can be the critical difference in making a deal, as well as avoiding those that don’t make sense. Dan never wasted my time, and I would recommend him above any other recruiter I have dealt with.”
