Shannon Murphy

I love conversing with clients to better understand the obstacles they are facing within their legal department, and together brainstorming how Major, Lindsey & Africa can assist them with building and managing stronger legal teams. Working together to devise solutions brings me genuine satisfaction and seeing candidates excel in environments I help them find is a real source of joy.

She has successfully partnered with Fortune 500 companies and AmLaw firms to augment existing resources with consulting legal professionals and staff interim and project-based needs. Shannon also works to train and mentor junior recruiters to provide candidates and clients alike with a top-notch service.
