Wolf Konstant

"Wolfstar"
Senior Consultant
“I was nearly eviscerated by an iguana that tried to snatch my papaya.”

Wolf's professional career began as a cabana boy and poker room attendant in one of the hotel resorts that inspired Dirty Dancing. He switched gears early on to obtain a degree in Government from Cornell, which led him to D.C. before he was ultimately drawn back to NYC and the law.

He attended NYU Law and spent seven years as a corporate lawyer in both Brussels and New York at Cleary Gottlieb. Again, he found himself looking to make a change.

After a few great in-house roles, most recently as the General Counsel, Chief Privacy Officer and Secretary to a venture-backed ad tech company that he managed through a successful exit in 2017, Wolf is well-versed in BigLaw, recruiters, in-house job searches and strategizing for a career plan that makes sense longterm.

Wolf loves that at Whistler, he gets to coach, matchmake and help others navigate the rough seas of a legal career. Given that none of his jobs have been obtained through recruiters, he brings a unique perspective about what candidates need and don't need from their recruiter. He brings his whole self wherever he goes so while he’s helping you find the right move for your career, don’t be surprised if he invites you to enjoy local house and techno music at his Brooklyn bar, asks for your help renovating his almost 100-year-old stone house in Jersey, or shares parenting tips on negotiations with a preschooler.

Favorite secret beach:

testimonial about this recruiter:

Working with Wolf was one of the better professional experiences I've had. He took the time to actually understand what I was looking for in my next job and how it aligned with my overall career goals. He provided me with tailored advice and opportunities, whereas, frankly, other recruiters seemed more interested in making sure I was placed anywhere they could find an opening (relevant or not). Wolf also took the time to be there for me on a personal level, and was a great sounding board when considering different offers.

I would recommend Wolf 10/10 times.

Corporate & Crypto Associate at Fenwick & West

Wolf and the rest of the Whistler team were instrumental in finding the best opportunity for me in FinTech, and more specifically the niche area of cryptocurrencies.

Most importantly, they listened to my desire in terms of law firm structure and growth prospects. They gave me valuable insight on market compensation and leverage in negotiations. Ultimately, I was placed at a great firm that had the kind of culture and growth prospects I sought, and the Whistler team made that happen.

Wolf and the Whistler team are a next generation team of legal recruiters. They are savvy, experienced and deeply entrenched in the right markets. I started working with Wolf even before I wanted a change because it was clear it was a relationship worth having, for both career and personal reasons. Later on, when a change was in the works, Wolf seamlessly led me through the process and helped me reach and even expand my goals.

Currently In-House, Former Capital Markets Associate at Latham & Watkins

I first met Wolf a few years before my eventual move to another law firm. Since that time, he has been a trusted resource in helping strategize about my desired career path, and the steps necessary to get there. Because he is such a great listener and has a strong understanding of the market, he immediately knew what roles would be a good fit for me, once I decided that it was time to make a move. I'm very happy with my new firm, and am indebted to Wolf and the rest of the Whistler team for that.

Wolf was a straight shooter and a pleasure to work with as I traversed what I thought would be an uncomfortable process. Wolf helped me figure out what I wanted out of a job, gave me the lay of the land of where I could find what I wanted, and helped me land at one of those destinations. Couldn’t be happier with the process and the end result.

Wolf was an absolute pleasure to work with throughout my job search. He stood with me and advocated for me when other recruiters showed little interest, merely giving me lip service. Wolf listened to what I truly was looking for in my next opportunity and helped make it a reality. He was patient and relentless on my behalf and I wholeheartedly endorse working with him.

Technology and Privacy Associate at Alston & Bird

I have had such an amazing experience with Wolf and his team! As I was considering shifting into a new area of practice, Wolf listened intently to what I was looking for. Unlike recruiters I worked with in the past, Wolf only provided me with opportunities that were relevant to my goals. Wolf and his team listened to what I wanted in a new firm and provided instrumental advice during the interview process.

Most importantly, when I received my offer from xxxxxxxxxxx, Wolf didn't pressure me to take it. Instead, he told me to reflect on how this next move will fit into my overall career trajectory and think about those considerations before accepting. The Whistler team looks at the bigger picture and truly focuses on how to ensure you have the best experience and land the offer you really want!
