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.
