Based in India, Tuli leads Major, Lindsey & Africa's EMEA and APAC in-house operations focusing on strategy and business development efforts
Hanover, Md — November 1, 2016 — Major, Lindsey & Africa, the world's leading legal search firm, today announced that Naveen Tuli has joined the firm as managing partner, based in Delhi. Naveen joins the firm's in-house practice group and heads the strategy and business development efforts across EMEA and APAC, working with Major, Lindsey & Africa recruiting teams across offices to ensure best-in-class service is provided to clients and candidates internationally.
Naveen joins Major, Lindsey & Africa from Laurence Simons International (LSI), where he was the firm's global managing director. He joined LSI in 1990, initially focusing on the UK in-house counsel market, and was made a partner in 1994. He then played a pivotal role in extending LSI's legal recruiting services to 15 offices across Europe, Russia, the Middle East, Asia Pacific, the United States and Latin America. LSI was sold to the private equity-backed FiveTen Group in 2007, at which time Naveen was promoted to global managing director for LSI and given a seat on the FiveTen Group strategy board. Under his stewardship, LSI was transformed from a primarily contingent business model to one more focused on exclusive and retained work.
"With his extensive global network and client base developed over the years, Naveen has an extraordinary understanding of the needs and requirements of an international in-house legal team," said Brent Harris, executive director of Major, Lindsey & Africa's EMEA and APAC operations. "As a result, he is able to expertly match opportunities within in-house teams of global corporations with his strong network of highly qualified candidates, delivering the best results for both his clients and candidates."
Although based in Delhi, Naveen is expected to travel extensively throughout the EMEA and APAC regions, working closely with Major, Lindsey & Africa in-house consultants throughout both regions as well as partnering with colleagues in the United States.
"After more than 25 years in the legal search industry, I am delighted to have joined Major, Lindsey & Africa,” said Naveen. "With the firm’s market leadership in the United States and deep rooted client and candidate relationships that have been developed over the past three decades, the foundations could not be any stronger upon which to build a stronger EMEA and APAC business that reflects the success we have already achieved in the United States."
Naveen qualified as a barrister in the United Kingdom in 1989.
