I am a grownup who has the luxury of playing with puzzles. My goal is not simply to recruit an individual for a particular position but to find that missing piece, that person whose vision, values and expertise align perfectly with the needs of a client company.

Will Barclay is a Managing Director with our In-House Practice Group in our Los Angeles office. He consults with clients in Southern California and throughout the country on legal recruitment and matters relating to corporate culture and structure. He specializes in working with client companies to build, grow and restructure their legal departments through the acquisition of top legal talent and the implementation of strategic initiatives designed to increase efficiency and reduce overall legal spend.

In the healthcare context, Will has worked with national and regional healthcare systems, insurers and medical device companies to identity talent to fill senior legal and compliance roles. He also has extensive experience working with technology and related companies in a wide range of areas from privacy to FTC compliance.


Will's search experience includes work on behalf of publicly traded and privately held technology, biotech, entertainment, healthcare, real estate and manufacturing companies for positions ranging from general counsel to junior staff counsel.
