Jonathan Wylie Director

My passion is getting to know people. I love to find out what really makes them tick. This natural curiosity translates into a desire to understand corporate legal teams—to find out what drives them, why they operate as they do and how they can be improved. Hiring someone or making a career move can be stressful; I have the privilege to be entrusted with guiding people at these crossroads. The human element of the search process provides the complexity and fun to what we do. That is what makes me tick. 

As a Director in our In-House Practice Group, Jonathan Wylie specializes in identifying in general counsel, chief compliance officers and other senior attorneys for corporate legal departments in Atlanta and throughout the Southeast. He uses his extensive experience and deep network with top talent to provide high-quality advice and hiring solutions throughout the recruitment process.

As an Ireland native who spent 10 years living in London, Jonathan enjoys traveling. He has spent time in Germany, Istanbul, Dubai, Prague, Myanmar, Thailand and The Philippines. When at home, he can be found doing DIY projects around the house, taking in a round of golf or attempting to grow fruits and vegetables in his backyard. 


Jonathan has been working in legal search since 2010. Most recently, he was a senior partner with Lucas Group, placing attorneys in-house across the United States. Prior to that, he worked at Pure Search in London placing lawyers in-house across the United Kingdom and Europe.

Jonathan was called to the Bar of England and Wales in 2008 and is a qualified barrister.
