Thanks to Todd Legal Search we were able to make a strategic hire for our private credit group. Beth worked with us throughout the process to provide insight into the partner’s motivations and feedback making it easier for us to position our strengths with the candidate’s wishes. The end result was a seamless hiring and onboarding process and ultimately a partner who has taken off with our platform. We’re thrilled with the result.

Fred Fisher – Partner, Finance


I have worked with Beth for over 10 years, first in my own employment search as a young associate, and now on the hiring side as we’ve expanded our in-house legal team. Beth has always been very thoughtful in her approach to searches. She takes the time to truly listen in addition to asking great questions to tease out exactly what our needs are. She actively seeks feedback as the search progresses so that she and her team can further refine. I also appreciate Beth’s honest insights about current market conditions. It’s always a pleasure to work with Beth and her team!
