Hunter West not only did a great job listening to the needs of the role, they took the time to do their own research on the lawyers we were hiring for and presented a candidate that far exceeded what I was expecting. I have worked with other recruitment agencies, and none compare to Hunter West. The candidate pool seems to be of a different calibre, as do the recruiters themselves. Hunter West will always be my first choice.

Hunter West was extremely responsive. They navigated an extremely complicated situation, were adaptable when priorities shifted, and put forth candidates that were well suited to the role and the company. Hunter West’s approach works because they get to know you, your company, and the role really well before they even start recommending candidates. The emphasis is on finding the right candidate for the role.
