testimonials about this recruiter:

I would recommend Aayush to anyone looking for a recruiter for placement. He truly goes above and beyond what other recruiters usually do. He didn’t just try to place me as quickly as possible but really went to great lengths to understand me on both a personal and professional level to help place me in a situation that would be most ideal for me. He offered sage advice during the entire process (including contemplating whether to stay put) at all hours and for any length of time. And even when we were not in communication, he was working behind the scenes for my benefit in communicating with multiple contacts to ensure the right result for me. I’ve had experience with many recruiters in the past but as long as Aayush is in the business, he’ll be my last one.

Corporate Partner at Loeb & Loeb

Aayush assisted me during two law firm moves and also advised me while moving in-house. He is thoughtful, conscientious, and will take the time to understand your goals and find the right fit. You couldn't pay me to work with another recruiter.

Aayush is a highly skilled and resourceful recruiter, with a breadth of knowledge of the legal market both in California and nationally. He approached my search with the perfect balance of market expertise, professionalism and personal attention. He was well-prepared, thorough and knowledgeable from day one. Above all, Aayush makes clear that his primary drive is to place clients in a position where they will succeed and be happy. We spent a substantial amount of time discussing my goals, concerns and preferences. I will undoubtedly use his services for my next career move, and recommend him to anyone looking for a new position.

Aayush is an incredible recruiter, and I could not recommend him highly enough. He is dedicated, knowledgeable, and insightful. He helped me identify what I wanted and didn’t want in my future job, and then assisted me in finding my ideal firm. Aayush provided invaluable guidance and advice, drawing from his years of experience. Thanks Aayush.

I worked with Aayush to secure my position at my current law firm. From my experience, one of Aayush's key strengths is his strong relationships with internal recruiters at AmLaw 100 law firms. This is a huge advantage, because unlike many recruiters, he's will not blindly send your application out just because he sees a job posting. He has the ability to call up the internal recruiter and gain real insight into the candidate that the firm is looking for, so when he does send your application, it is tailored and suited to the right position, thereby increasing the odds of landing an interview.
But beyond that, in working with Aayush I learned that he offers significant value in ways that I genuinely believe made a impact for me. For example:
1) He reached out to me regarding an unlisted position in a niche legal practice, and few other recruiters knew about this role;
2) He negotiated the logistics of interviews and meetings, saving me time and relieving stress;
3) He negotiated behind the scenes for a signing bonus; and
4) Once I received an offer, he continued to work with me and my firm to smooth out the on-boarding process (conflicts waivers, etc.).
In short, Aayush was an excellent find, and he is really skilled at his job. If you are looking to switch jobs, Aayush is an fantastic resource.
