“We retained Dimitri and Major, Lindsey & Africa to hire a Deputy General Counsel for our firm. The search process was competitive and we selected his firm over two others. They were professional, fast, efficient and all of the candidates were high quality. The team did the hard work of prescreening many relevant candidates out of a large field and found us exactly the right person for the role. They were responsive, very quick from start to finish and I am happy to say that the new hire is the right fit for our firm. I would highly recommend Dimitri for your General Counsel, Deputy GC or staff lawyer search.”
