The group found themselves with an immediate, interim need for an industry expert within an extremely niche field. They required a legal expert with experience in aircraft and helicopter finance, leasing and related restructuring transactions, including pre-delivery payment facilities, aircraft and spare parts credit facilities, EETCs and similar structured finance transactions.
Through an established relationship within Major, Lindsey & Africa’s Partner Practice Group, the Chair was introduced to our New York Interim Legal Talent group. Our recruiters met with the client to gain an understanding of their talent needs, budgeting and timeline. They then began to rapidly reach out to their networks to locate a restructuring lawyer with the right experience and availability who could provide assistance immediately.
Our interim team of 40+ legal recruiters engaged MLA’s vast network to vet all candidates with the requisite profile. Leveraging MLA’s career long attorney relationships and Interim Legal Talent’s expertise, we were able to determine within a weeks’ time a short list of candidates to screen that aligned with the role. We tailored the pitch based on our insights regarding personality, availability, career history and most importantly their ability to execute on the client’s matter. Ultimately we presented four candidates that possess prior AmLaw Partner experience that met the timing, specificity and expert-level request from the group. These four candidates experienced a thorough screening and interview process by our New York office which resulted in a swift interview process and onboarding by the group.
The group has been able to deploy a specialized talent that their clients could depend on for reliable, proven and sophisticated service.
