Jacquelyn Knight, a Partner in our New York office, has successfully counseled more than 100 partners of varied backgrounds in their placements in mid-sized and large national and global firms as well as groups of partners on complex searches. Over the last decade, she has worked with many high-profile attorneys and groups, some with a multi-geographic practice focus.
Jacquelyn is an expert in the New York legal market and regularly meets with litigation and corporate partners in order to inform them of the current legal market. Her market intelligence, enhanced by her firm’s global presence and partners in more than 20 offices worldwide, is unmatched. She regularly conducts targeted searches in order to complete strategic placements in varied areas of practice.
She does not only match parameters on practice fit and metrics of practice but also finds the best cultural fit for candidates and clients. Much of her client work is repeat work, given the success of her placements, and most of her partner candidates are referred by partners she placed through a successful candidate interview process and integration.
