Mindy Crandus Sircus Managing Director

Mindy Sircus

As a legal recruiter, I pride myself on earning the trust and confidence of my clients. Through careful listening, I help to clarify clients' objectives, develop a creative strategy for their search and guide their process to the desired outcome: a successful, long-lasting placement.

As a Managing Director with our Chicago In-House Practice Group, Mindy Sircus works closely with corporate legal departments and in-house candidates to forge relationships that are professional and cultural fits for both sides.


Prior to joining Major, Lindsey & Africa, Mindy spent 17 years as a legal recruiter with the Zenner Consulting Group in Chicago, specializing in both law firm and in-house placements.

Before becoming a recruiter, Mindy practiced corporate and securities law at Neal, Gerber & Eisenberg LLP, where she was a partner, and as an associate at Arnold & Porter in Washington, D.C.
