February 8, 2016 – Shilton Sharpe Quarry (SSQ), an international legal search consultancy, has expanded its search staff in Europe with the additions of Anne Pichon in Paris and lawyer Filippo Mazzotti in Milan.
Ms. Pichon, who joins the firm as an associate, recruits in-house lawyers and legal professionals at all levels of seniority and for all industries. She will focus on continuing to grow the business’s presence across the in-house legal recruitment market in France. Previously, Ms. Pichon was a consultant within the legal and tax division at Michael Page International.
Mr. Mazzotti becomes a consultant in the private practice and in-house teams at SSQ, recruiting lawyers on behalf of a broad range of international and domestic law firms in Italy. With several years of experience at law firms Linklaters LLP and Gianni, Origoni, Grippo, Cappelli & Partners, he has specialized as a lawyer in the banking and finance sectors. In his new role, he will be working with law firms across Italy, helping them to expand their teams in all practice areas.
“We continue to focus on growing our teams across Europe,” said Nick Shilton, SSQ chief executive officer. “It is important for us to grow our teams with the right people who can help to support our clients and candidates on the ground in each of our locations. Anne and Filippo are excellent additions as they bring a wealth of market knowledge and strong networks to their new roles and to SSQ.”
SSQ has a team of global consultants with experience in providing legal search and recruitment services for a broad range of international and domestic law firms, as well as companies and banks in the U.K., Germany, Italy, Spain, France, Asia, Australia, the U.S., New Zealand, the Middle East, South Africa, Switzerland, Russia and central and eastern Europe.
Legal recruiting generally has been booming this year. According to Hunt-Scanlon Media, lawyers employed by government agencies are on the move — a direct result of President Obama’s second term nearing its end. Employment of lawyers is projected to grow 10 percent through 2022. Demand for legal work is expected to be robust as individuals, businesses, and all levels of government require legal services in the U.S. and internationally as global economies expand.
