About Amanda

Amanda Mindlin is a recruiter covering BCG’s East Coast region. A graduate of Harvard Law School and a former litigation associate at Shutts & Bowen, Ms. Mindlin places associate, counsel, and partner candidates in AmLaw, boutique, and other firms in major East Coast markets including New York City, Boston, D.C., Charlotte, the Research Triangle, and Miami.

Ms. Mindlin grew up on Siesta Key, a barrier island off the coast of Sarasota, Florida, and enjoyed a childhood filled with beach activities, theatrical pursuits, and high-level academics. While her father (an anesthesiologist) took her snorkeling, her mother (a former beauty queen) took her to voice lessons. The future Harvard attorney and BCG recruiter was such a talented vocalist that she sang professional opera from age 7 to 15, performing in Sarasota Opera House productions of Carmen, Brundibar, and Hansel and Gretel.
 
But Ms. Mindlin was as gifted in the classroom as she was on stage, and she recalls studying for high school International Baccalaureate classes in the Opera House’s orchestra pit. She considered pursuing a career in theater, but ultimately decided on a pre-law or journalism curriculum at the University of Florida. She majored in political science, participated in Model United Nations, and graduated with a nearly perfect grade-point average and as a member of Phi Beta Kappa. She also spent a semester in Argentina and a summer in Spain learning Spanish.
 
She then went to Harvard Law School, which she enjoyed not only because of the school’s academics but because of its many extracurricular activities. She was a Student Representative and Event Coordinator for the Student Government—organizing the law school’s very first Patriot’s Day celebration commemorating the Battles of Lexington and Concord. She sang with the Drama Society’s Parody series, counseled artists as part of the Recording Artist Project’s clinical program, and was an editor for the Civil Rights-Civil Liberties Law Review.
 
Ms. Mindlin spent her 1L summer as a law clerk for Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company. It was a wonderful experience—the company put her up in its hotel for the entire summer, flew her by helicopter to meetings in New York, and gave her an array of assignments involving different practice areas. She decided that litigation was the right fit for her, and after spending her 2L summer at Bingham McCutchen, she secured a clerkship with the Honorable Donald M. Middlebrooks at the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida.
 
After her clerkship ended, Ms. Mindlin took a position as an intellectual property litigation associate at Shutts & Bowen in West Palm Beach. She handled a variety of trademark, copyright, and patent litigation matters. She enjoyed her time at the firm, and learned a great deal, but ultimately decided to pursue legal recruiting so she could do work that involved a greater degree of interpersonal engagement. She loves recruiting, especially talking to candidates about career paths and aspirations. She looks forward to each new conversation and to the times she can share good news with candidates, like when they get interviews and offers.
 
In her free time, Ms. Mindlin enjoys traveling, trying out new recipes in the kitchen, and taking her Norwich terrier, Teddie, to dog parks. She and her boyfriend, who founded a socially-responsible Vodka company, also are devoted Vikings and Gators football fans.
