Gary and his team are consummate professionals. Gary's deep and insightful knowledge of the market is invaluable. When Gary brings you a candidate, you can have confidence about the candidates' bona fides because Gary has vetted them himself and stands behind them.
Moving from one law firm to another is fraught with obstacles, including confidentiality concerns, client conflicts, and communications with other colleagues you want to include as members of the new team. Gary’s experience and integrity were instrumental in my decision to consider a change. His perseverance in maintaining a relationship was much appreciated. Gary listened to my goals of bringing my team and promoting my colleagues as the way to successfully build the practice. He helped facilitate the communications with Reed Smith and with the team, and was instrumental in the successful transition of our practices and growth of the firm.
I want to publicly thank Gary Miles for helping me and my colleagues get to Loeb & Loeb. Gary knows the market, period. He guided us intelligently through the minefields of conflicts, culture, compensation, and location. He was and is available 24/7 (not sure when he sleeps), and he does all this with grace, humor, consistency, and what appears to be eidetic memory. If you are looking for a change, or just to test your happiness quotient, you would be crazy not to seek out Gary. It’s his job no doubt, but it seems like it is his calling as well.
Gary has strong connections with top industry talent in multiple marketplaces. I have been continually impressed with Gary's insight and his ability to quickly bring us exceptional attorneys that are a spot-on match with our firm's ongoing strategic needs and growth ambitions. He is definitely one of the top recruiters in the country and a valued resource.
I have worked with Gary Miles on a number of lateral partner placements for our firm, and have been extremely pleased with his work. Gary spends the time to really get to know our firm and its practices, so he can effectively communicate what we have to offer. He has a deep understanding of the legal industry and is a valuable sounding board on strategic matters. The quality of candidates Gary brings to us is consistently high, and he works hard to get to a successful conclusion. I am very happy to have Gary as a partner in our lateral recruiting efforts.
After 20+ years at the same firm, I was going to make one move and get it right. Gary distinguished himself by offering incredibly insightful and patient guidance throughout the process. Beyond his deep knowledge base and senior law firm contacts, Gary worked hard to find the best (not the quickest) fit for me and my practice. In an industry rife with conflict and double-talk, Gary brings credibility and integrity to the table.
Gary Miles has proven himself over and over again to be one of the most prolific recruiters of highly sought after groups and individual partners in the major legal markets. He does his homework well, makes an effort to provide a balanced picture of firms and their vision and strategies, metrics, leadership, practices and clients, and is a tireless advocate for his candidates. Gary gets it done and will not disappoint.
I worked with Gary on moving my group of 5 attorneys and 2 staff. I've worked with a number of recruiters over the years and one of the things that really sets Gary apart is his knowledge of the industry and various firms. More importantly, Gary uses that knowledge to really help you find a firm where there is a true synergy between an individual's practice and the firm's platform. In a number of instances during our process, Gary put his desire to find the RIGHT fit for us above his own economic interest by recommending that we not join higher paying firms where the synergy was not there. It was truly a pleasure working with Gary. He is certainly my 'go-to-guy' for all high-level hiring needs.
