As New England’s oldest attorney search firm, New England Legal Search is proud to have worked successfully with thousands of clients and candidates. Here’s what some of the candidates and employers we’ve worked with say about us.

Seth Hoogasian, General Counsel, Thermo Electron
New England Legal Search helped place me at Thermo Electron in 1990 and I became the General Counsel in 1992. They are the first people I call whenever I need a search firm for legal staffing. Over the years, New England Legal Search has worked closely with me to understand the dynamics of our department and has helped me to bring together a fantastic in-house team.
Scott Mays, Associate, Berman DeValerio
New England Legal Search recently helped me make a career change moving from a large national firm to a small boutique firm in Boston. From the beginning it was clear that Sarah Wickham and New England Legal Search were attentive to my goals and needs, putting me in the best position to move forward with my legal career. Sarah and the staff at New England Legal Search were helpful in providing not just candid advice and opinions but also helping me develop a comprehensive strategy to get where I wanted to be in my career.
Nancy E. Needle,Director of Legal Recruitment, Goulston & Storrs
I have worked with Linda Kline and New England Legal Search for over twenty years. I have always found Linda very easy to work with and fun. She goes to great lengths and does a great job getting to know who we are, what our needs are and introducing us to candidates who will do well in our firm. She is a headhunter that I trust, without reservation. She is candid, honorable, and has a great reputation. I would recommend Linda Kline and New England Legal Search without reservation.
Margaret Seif, Vice President, General Counsel, and Secretary, Analog Devices, Inc.
I've worked with New England Legal Search extensively, both as a candidate and as a client. As a group, they are superb in all respects—they know the market, they know the available talent, and they work hard to match the right candidate to the opportunity. Linda Kline in particular is an exemplary professional. She is smart, honest, and most importantly, she never tries to fit a square peg into a round hole; by this I mean that she strives to understand both the culture of the employer as well as the personality of the candidate. Linda is interested in the long term result—will the match work—rather than the short term opportunity of filling a job opening. She is terrific by any measure.
Craig Tateronis, Chairman, Real Estate and TelecommunicationsDepts., Prince, Lobel, Glovsky & Tye, LLP
I first worked with New England Legal Search when I was a junior associate with a major Boston law firm, looking to change the direction of my career. Understanding my desire to develop a practice, they found the right small firm opportunity for me. As my business grew, I recognized the need to move to a larger firm where I could better service my clients. Once again, New England Legal Search helped identify the right opportunity for me and placed me at Hutchins, Wheeler & Dittmar and then helped me move to Mintz, Levin.  I am now chair of the real estate and telecommunications groups at Prince, Lobel and I continue to rely on New England Legal Search to help me recruit top lawyers for my firm.
Joe Vittiglio, Vice President/Corporate Counsel, Aveo Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
New England Legal Search, and Neil Paterson in particular, was invaluable in helping me make the transition from a large, downtown firm to an in-house, corporate position. Their warmth of personality and rigorous diligence were an initial draw for me from the outset. Throughout the process, they provided an effective and outcome focused strategy, coupling a high level of expertise with a vast pool of resources. Their defining trait, however, is the sincere and genuine advice that they provide, with my goals as their highest priority
Lawrence T. Weiss, Vice President - Chief International Counsel, Covidien
New England Legal Search helped me in evaluating two significant career changes—first, a move from a small boutique firm to a large downtown firm and, several years later, a move to an in-house position. In each case, they were helpful and responsive in answering my questions and providing me with both honest advice and all of the information I needed to reach a decision. At the same time, they never pressured me into making any decision. I consider them a valuable and trusted resource.
