I contacted Hunter West because your people know the legal industry. You send appropriate candidates. The resumes were well-laid out and easy to read, you had good communication with the candidates, and they appeared on time and prepared for their interviews. The candidates you sent were much better than the candidates who were applying. Your contacts and industry experience allow you to present quality candidates.

Human Resources Director

Hunter West provides more quality candidates, and they “think” about what they send me. Their personnel are professional and work with us more like a partner, and they support our industry and attend events which in turn builds relationships. I have found Hunter West to be the best local recruiter for lawyers.
Chief Operating Officer
National Law Firm
Hunter West was very responsive, kept me up to date, and were realistic about finding candidates. The value I found was getting current information about market conditions: they provided salary trends, area-specific candidate availability, and general advice on recruitment. My experience with Hunter West is 5 out of 5.
Human Resources Manager
International Law Firm
The recruitment process with Hunter West went very well and the time to fill a difficult part-time fixed term contract role was fairly quick. The experience went well and the feedback and communications were up-to-date with the HR team and hiring managers. We would definitely use Hunter West in our future recruitment needs particularly for Legal Counsel and Legal Support roles.
