          The firm’s founder, Abbe Mald Bunt, started the company after serving in legal recruitment positions at two international law firms – Fried Frank and Steel Hector & Davis (nka Squire Patton Boggs).  Because of this experience, Ms. Bunt understands the needs of both clients and candidates and conducts confidential searches to identify skills and personalities of talented candidates that are best suited for clients.  We pride ourselves in the best outcome for both parties.

She is often quoted in legal publications.  Ms. Bunt has been recognized by Harvard and Columbia Law Schools where she participates in their Legal Recruitment Seminar Program.  In addition to recruitment, Ms. Bunt is often called upon for assignments that include training for law firm recruitment, retention, minority hiring and conducting interviewing skill seminars.
