Christina was great and really creative in identifying some opportunities that I wouldn't have ordinarily thought of including Davis Wright, which is where I am going, so I think that was for me, the most unique and impressive part of it. She didn't just go to the easily identifiable firms that do what I do, but she looked at other firms and I thought that was good. For me, having a go between that has experience like Christina, being someone who knew my background and had someone who had a similar background as well and that had transitioned it, helped a lot to have her input in my resume, my business plan and the discussions I was having with some of the partners at the firms I was meeting with. I haven't worked with a lot of recruiters, but individually, Christina was very knowledgeable and for me the most important part was creative. She was looking for the opportunities that weren't usually clear that they had business similar to what I did, but places that wanted to get into my white collar area of the law, and that was for me, from my perspective, puts her among the best.

I am very pleased to work with an individual like you who is highly experienced in law. Your firm is the most ideal to find employment opportunities in for individuals like me who are interested in patent law opportunities. In our several conversations, it was quite apparent that you know and appreciate my credentials. Thank you very much for all your advice and hope that I will be able to find a position soon with your help.
I wanted to take a moment to provide you with a quick update on my end. A couple of weeks ago, I accepted an offer to join the Los Angeles office of a national full-service law firm as a member of their litigation team in their healthcare and elder law practice group. Brian, you have been the most professional and courteous recruiter I have dealt with, and I look forward to keeping in very close touch.
My recruiter in California was able to spot an opportunity that was perfect for me, and I am happily settling into a new position thanks to their hard work and assistance.
I thought Lynn was really great. She didn't push me into one corner or another. I had some really aggressive experiences with recruiters, one of whom actually disclosed to people at the firm that I was looking to try to attract them as well and things like that. I really appreciated that she handled herself ethically. My experience was professional and above board. BCG did all of the work, and they really earned their commission. They were aggressive in contact, and from my experience they did everything I would have wanted them to do.Working with BCG made my job easier because they provided all the listings and I submitted [my choices]. They gave me advice regarding how to interview and things like that. It was very good.The first three words that come to mind when I think of BCG are aggressive, large, and significant. I would rank BCG right at the top compared to other recruiting companies I have worked with.I'd recommend Lynn. To me, just candidly, it is about the individuals. I was lucky to work with one of the best people, and I would recommend her. I think there were also great materials. To me it's 90% about your person and 10% about the firm.
