I recognize that executive search is about more than finding candidates who are interested in a role; it’s about finding candidates who are interested and qualified. I partner with my clients and work collaboratively to understand their unique needs and culture in order to find the right 'fit' for both my candidates and clients.

Amanda K. Brady is a Managing Director and the Global Practice Leader of our Law Firm Management practice. This retained practice specializes in placing business professionals across the law firm management suite. Our specialty includes "chiefs" and "directors" of operations, finance, marketing, business development, strategy, pricing, human resources, recruiting and professional development, technology, knowledge management, and practice management.

Amanda and her husband, Kevin, are sailing and dancing enthusiasts.

Experience

Amanda has 16 years of executive and legal search experience, the last 12 of which have focused on building executive management teams for AmLaw 100 and 200 firms. She has spent her career in the legal industry, originally in administration for an AmLaw 100 firm and then in search for a New York-based legal search firm and a national executive search firm. As a result, she has a depth of knowledge and understanding of the challenges the legal industry has faced and the transformations law firms and corporate legal departments must undergo to meet changing market demands. Identifying talented professionals who can help their organizations successfully and profitably navigate these waters is her specialty.
