BECAUSE YOUR SUCCESS IS OUR SUCCESS

Vicki Randall, Esq.
Director of Legal at Culture Amp

“Andrea’s extensive experience developing in-house legal departments for tech companies is apparent in how she intellectually and intuitively understands every element of what we need when we start a search. We interview every candidate she introduces to us and almost always hire her recommendation. Her perception and judgement about candidate selection is spot on, even when we are hiring candidates who are halfway around the world. From a team development and interdepartmental collaboration perspective, Andrea has been one of my go-to calls when I want to brainstorm solutions and discuss bottlenecks in workflow. Andrea clearly has extensive experience with both in house attorneys and sales teams. This very unique perspective is incredibly valuable in developing the in-house legal department for a tech company where the collaboration between these two departments is so mission critical. Above all her talents and skills, we work with Andrea because we trust her completely. She is one of the most honest and loyal people you could ever work with. You need that trust with every hire you make in your legal department, and that starts with a trustworthy team supporting the development of that department.”

Melissa Rosen Frankel

Recruiting Consultant

“Andrea and I worked together as Directors during both the best of time and worst of times in the San Francisco legal market. Prior to her joining the team and now many years later, I still feel she is one of the most productive, high minded and best legal recruiters I have worked with. During our tenure together, I was so impressed by her ability to negotiate through the toughest deals and keep both sides focused on what was truly in everyone’s best interest. Andrea was calm, steady and diligent in finding the right placement for both client and candidate. This skill also made her a great leader and trainer to her team. Many times, when I had a difficult placement, I would ask Andrea for both her guidance and to help me close a deal because of her smart and intuitive sense about which was the right direction to take. Andrea is passionate about her profession and her name is the first name I think of when recommending candidates and clients in the Bay area 20 years after we have worked together.”
