Law Firm Associate Hiring
Law Firm Partner Hiring
I've worked with Whistler Partners for over 3 years, and this is the second offer I've accepted through them in that time. Their knowledge of the technology sector is top notch – they clearly know and were able to introduce me to the best opportunities in it. And more specifically, Taylor and Nadeen have been fantastic to work with. They’re never pushy, provide detailed and nuanced insight about specific roles and general career trajectory, and always prepared me in advance of each interview. Really glad to have them in my corner!
- ARON NIMANI
Technology Transactions and Licensing Senior Associate at WilmerHale
I’ve met a lot of recruiters over the years, but very few measure up to Kathleen. She’s a straight shooter, and it doesn’t hurt that her team has some of the best connections in the industry.
- KENT S.
General Counsel and Chief Compliance Officer at Fynn
Working with Nadeen and Whistler Partners has been a great experience for me. Nadeen was able to connect me with a dream job opportunity at a unicorn start-up, and I have Nadeen to thank for that. I tried direct applying and through linkedIn, but Nadeen was able to get me in rather quickly through her great connections to the tech industry. I highly recommend working with Nadeen and Whistler Partners!
Legal Counsel at Smart Home Unicorn
As I was on the verge of true happiness, I had picked out office space and was moving to Austin Texas to start my own boutique with great weather and no state taxes, [Sean] asked me to “have breakfast and shake a hand” with this great firm he knows. Almost a decade later, it was a perfect fit. Now we use Whistler to find other great attorneys fed up with Big Law that want interesting work and better lives.
- S. GREGORY BOYD
Partner & Co-Chair of Interactive Entertainment Group at Frankfurt Kurnit
Karen was able to pick out the skills and experiences I had that would be valuable to employers so we could focus our search on the firms that were likely to be interested. I say “we” and “our” because once Karen got involved, she was right there with me. She helped prepare me for interviews, was there to answer all my questions about the process and celebrated every tiny bit of positive feedback with me... Most importantly, her enthusiasm was contagious. Just talking with her inspired hope so I was able to show up for interviews with energy and excitement... Thanks to Karen, I wound up in a job that is a better fit for me than anything I would have thought of on my own.
- ALI ANDREWS
Special Counsel at Baker Botts
Unlike other recruiters, Sean and Whistler listened to what I wanted in a job and actively pursued those types of positions. At the time I was attempting to move from one practice area to another and most recruiters pitched me for the same practice area over and over. Whistler also had access to firms that were not on the typical recruiter “list.” I highly recommend them!
- LINDSAY RODMAN
Senior Director, Business & Legal Affairs at Atlantic Records (former Davis & Gilbert)
I've never worked with a talent partner like Kathleen. She has great insights into each candidate with whom she works and represents them incredibly well. We were not sure if we were going to find the right fit for our position but then we met Kathleen. Every candidate she showed us was qualified and the process felt collaborative, not transactional. It was really a pleasure to work with Kathleen and we have recommended her services to portfolio companies and colleagues at other funds and will continue to do so.
- DAVID BERG
CFO of Rainfall Ventures
Not only did I tell her that I wanted to lateral to a different city as a very junior associate, but I also wanted to transition to a new practice group. Karen didn’t blink; she listened and immediately got to work tailoring a list of firms that fit my needs and preparing me for interviews. Within weeks, I received and accepted an offer for my dream job as a corporate associate in Austin. Before starting this process, I didn’t know all of the benefits of working with a good recruiter like Karen, but her deep insider knowledge and powerful advocacy set me up for success. She is responsive, kind, and wildly effective at her job. You will not find a better recruiter/therapist/friend than Karen Vladeck.
- SUMMER THOMAS
Corporate Associate at Haynes and Boone
Here’s what you can expect once you’ve got Karen on your team: expert insider advice on the legal market – including not only the best options for you now, but the best options to position you for your next chapter; invaluable assistance with your resume and application materials; a cheerleader who will talk you up to all the right folks; a mentor who will prep you for interviews, debrief them afterwards, and provide solid advice all along the way; a national network of recruiters who will pitch in with advice on specific markets as needed; and – most importantly – a friend you can trust to help guide you during one of the most important decisions of your career. Karen helped me land the exact position in the exact practice area in the exact location I wanted. I cannot imagine making a legal career move without Karen, and I hope I never have to.
- BRITTANY FOWLER
Entertainment Associate at O'Melveny
As a Canadian educated and trained lawyer lateraling to the Bay Area, Julieta made the entire recruiting process painless and when I told her my goal was to move asap with a great position in hand - she made it happen and for that I am very grateful. Moreover, her help did not stop when I received and signed my offer with Latham & Watkins - she continued to guide me in relation to ending my term with my previous firm, beginning bar prep, and the administrative fyis of being a foreign trained lawyer moving to California. In short, Julieta went above and beyond in all respects and I would recommend her to others in a heartbeat.
- NIVEDA ANANDAN
Executive Compensation Associate at Latham & Watkins
Francis helped me secure a position at the perfect firm for me. His high energy level and unique insights into how specific practice groups operate made each conversation fruitful. Switching firms can be stressful and may feel like a full-time job in itself, but working with Francis made the process much easier to navigate.
- JORDAN THOMPSON
Tech Transactions Associate at Davis Wright Tremaine
Sean and the Whistler team deeply understand the in-house and law firm markets and how they work together. As we've grown, I've relied on them to help us think through new openings, understand the market and find top talent.
- JOSH BESER
Former General Counsel of Away, Emerging Companies Partner at Wilson Sonsini
I liked working with them so much, I joined the company!

LEE IACOCCA, had he worked in legal recruiting, we're sure
Josh leveled with me from the start. He never tried to sell me on a position, but rather took the time to talk through options and took a vested interest in my career. I was more than just a commission. Whether you're trying to break in or move up in the ultra competitive tech or entertainment fields, Whistler can actually get you there. Whistler's industry focused networks and resources allow them to deliver where the other guys can't.
- MARK BONIN
Legal Counsel at The Kraft Group; New England Patriots; New England Revolution
Julieta is an invaluable recruiting partner. Her years of expertise on the law firm side give her a unique perspective – she truly knows what law firms need and want, she knows the lateral market inside and out, and she makes the entire process effortless. Julieta is amazing to work with and works with amazing talent; it’s a perfect match all around. She is a go-to for any and all searches. You’re in the best of hands with Julieta and I can’t recommend her enough!
- LAUREN BARTON
US Manager of Attorney Recruiting at Orrick
Whistler Partners is an outstanding firm, and they've become the gold standard for tech recruiting both on the law firm side and in-house. They have a deep bench, and have all the same resources (if not more) the big shops do, but their differentiators are unparalleled relationships and they make the overall experience to be highly personalized.
- SACHIN BANSAL
General Counsel at SecurityScorecard
Just wanted to reach out and say how impressed I have been with Julieta. She is killing it... Whenever I have an ask or question she goes at it 110% and I really value that. She also brings a lot of Bay Area market knowledge which is super valuable. For example, I am talking to a Partner tomorrow at Gunderson and she knows them well enough to shoot them a text to put in a good word... Lastly, I think of Julieta as a strategic partner, rather than someone trying to sell me on something that would be best for them. This last part is probably the most important and has earned my trust and respect.
- NATHANIEL GRAY
Corporate and Securities (Startups) Associate at Gunderson Dettmer
Taylor isn't your "average recruiter." He never pushed me towards something that wasn't a good fit, but instead was intent on getting to know me and my needs. During the interview process, he connected me with Whistler contacts who gave me insights into the companies I was interviewing at, and he considered all of my feedback before giving me invaluable advice, including how to tackle some difficult conversations diplomatically. I would hands down recommend Taylor to anyone looking to make a move in-house.
Legal Counsel at Venture Fund
I spent over 6 months trying to hire the right in-house GC, using different agencies and interviewing dozens of candidates. Then came Kathleen. She spent a considerable amount of time with me to understand the role, and more importantly to understand our company's culture. Her very first intro blew the competition out of the water, and I'm happy to say she's starting next week. These guys are snipers!
- OMRI DOR
Co-Founder & COO of Obligo
I recently wrapped up a job search process with Julieta, and am utterly and completely impressed with Julieta. She made my job search and interview process, which is normally frustrating and daunting, so streamlined and manageable, to the point it was downright enjoyable. Not only is Julieta a consummate professional with a deep and fulsome understanding of the market (including its dynamics and its players), but she is also unfailingly kind and empathetic. She took the time to truly get to know me and to help me figure out what I actually wanted for the next phase of my career.... Julieta went above and beyond in all respects, ensuring that I was prepared for my interviews and that I was thinking pragmatically and strategically throughout the entire process.
- JENNIFER BOYD
Private Equity M&A Associate at Latham & Watkins
The Whistler team has deep relationships with EGVC, private equity and corporate attorneys and have tremendous domain expertise in these areas. I always pay close attention to the candidates they work with. On top of that, the Whistler team is also a pleasure to work with.
- JEFFREY LEHRER
Co-Managing Partner, Northern Virginia Office & Co-Chair, Emerging Growth and Venture Capital at DLA Piper
As a professional, I genuinely value working with other excellent professionals. Julieta is an excellent professional and an outstanding recruiter. In addition to her hands-on in-house experience as a lateral recruiter at Fenwick, she has a complete view of the tech landscape and a deep knowledge of California based-firms. Further, her business acumen coupled with her well-rounded nature (and high EQ) allows her to keenly partner with clients to identify and advance their professional and personal goals for successful long-term fits.
Emerging Companies Partner at Top Startups Firm
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.
- JOE DOLL
Corporate & Crypto Associate at Fenwick & West
Sean and team are THE go-to recruiters – he didn’t even place me, but gave me great advice in me getting to my place. And now I go to them every time when anyone I know is thinking through a career move and when I need another hand on deck.
Emerging Companies Partner at AmLaw 50 Firm
Sean and his experienced team at Whistler consistently identify exactly the right candidate when I have an open position. They understand the market and they listen to me — but, more importantly, it’s clear that they listen to their candidates. And they’re terrific to work with.
- JAHAN SHARIFI
Partner & Co-Chair of Investment Funds and Asset Management at Barnes & Thornburg
There is no better recruiter to work with than Tad. Not only does Tad work tirelessly to make sure you are offered the best opportunities, but he also takes the time and effort to get to know you personally so that he can make sure he’s placing you somewhere that fits your vibe, rather than trying to rush you through the process. To put it simply, I will never work with anyone else. I am positive that there’s no better recruiter out there who cares as much as Tad, and the Whistler team as a whole, to make sure you end up somewhere where you’ll be satisfied at a professional level and, more importantly, happy at a personal level.
- MARC BALIATICO
Private Funds Associate at Proskauer Rose
Tad and the rest of the Whistler team are absolutely top-notch. They know the legal market inside and out and will go way above and beyond for clients (e.g. fly across the country to meet and make sure a new firm is working out for a client they’ve placed). Anyone looking for something different (in the best way possible) in their recruiting experience, I highly recommend working with Tad/Whistler - they are hands down the best in the business.
- CALEB GINSBERG
Sports, Media & Emerging Growth Associate at K&L Gates
Regardless of what his jokes might suggest, "Tad the Dad” is so much more than that. For candidates who want to work with someone who really listens and understands their career goals, Tad is the recruiter for you. Not only did Tad identify opportunities and advocate on my behalf throughout the process, I learned a lot about the landscape of entertainment law firms in NYC. When we met, I was working in a seemingly unrelated area of law but Tad could see that I was passionate about working in entertainment and helped me market my experience so I could make the leap.
Entertainment Associate at Top Media Firm
Tad and Whistler Partners have a great feel for the legal marketplace, especially as it relates to emerging markets. Tad was the perfect friend and ally in helping navigate the most complicated aspects of job change, while at all times making sure that I was maximizing my opportunities in a competitive environment.
- MICHAEL MCQUEENY
Cannabis Counsel at Foley Hoag
From the start, Tad listened carefully to understand what I was trying to accomplish in my lateral move and shaped and drove the search process advising me at every step of the journey. He is an excellent negotiator with prospective firms and tells it how it is to his clients. He made certain that I had all of the information and considered every angle before accepting or turning down an offer. We worked very well together and I have and will continue to recommend him to friends exploring a lateral move.
- WILL REILY
Financial Restructuring Associate at King & Spalding
Tad's guidance through the process of transitioning from BigLaw to a smaller firm outside of NYC was invaluable. He gave honest, realistic advice in a non-stuffy, down to earth way. I felt like I was being guided by a friend who was an expert in this arena. It was important to me that I had the help of someone who really understood my values and what I was looking for in a firm and that's exactly what I got. Even when I shed a tear (or two) through the process Tad didn't skip a beat. Incredibly thankful!
Litigation Associate at Boutique Firm
Tad took the time to learn about my career goals, and rather than simply sharing opportunities and openings, he took the time to discuss and prepare multiple plans and paths for me to achieve these goals. In the end, I ended up at a great firm that puts right on track for where I hope my legal career will lead. Aside from our professional relationship, Tad also took the time to get to know me personally and continued to check in even when our search had to be temporarily put on hold due to the pandemic.
Mergers & Acquisitions Associate at AmLaw 100 Firm
Emily is a wonderful human being and that is what makes her an outstanding recruiter. The time and patience Emily took to help me figure my path was relentless yet supportive. This just shows how dedicated the team at Whistler is to your hopes and ambitions. Hands down the best experience with a recruiter ever. Keep it up team Whistler!
- PRALIKA JAIN
Healthcare Associate at Moses & Singer
Emily brings a strong network and deep understanding of our priorities. She takes the time to understand the combination of creativity, raw intellect, experience, and niceness we prioritize. She is iterative, efficient, and genuinely invested in building our team. Emily is an absolute pleasure to work with and works hard to achieve our goals.
br>- RACHEL RUBIN
VP, Programs at Roivant Social Ventures
I faced a crossroads in my career when I realized that the firm that I had been with for over a decade was no longer the best for for my practice. Josh, Sean, and their team really “got” what I wanted and needed in a new firm. I had both a business partner and a best friend to guide me through the process. Thanks to their help, I joined a new firm that’s both skyrocketed my professional growth and where I’ve had a great time so far. Now, Whistler is helping build my team.
Technology Transactions Partner at Top Tech Firm
Josh is one of the best recruiters I've ever worked with. He had his finger on the pulse of the employer and did a great job of communicating to me both the specific needs of the employer as well as really valuable general advice. Josh and his team took all the time I needed to prepare me for my interviews, field questions, make suggestions, and most importantly, express confidence! I wouldn't hesitate to work with Josh and his team again.
Legal Counsel at Media Company
Tad and the Whistler team were fantastic during my lateral process. Tad was a true partner and friend, offering great advice and connections. Couldn't have asked for a better process and outcome.
Mergers & Acquisitions Associate at AmLaw 50 Firm
Whistler and Josh Bilgrei supercharged a fairly languid lateral search into high gear and impressed me with their knowledge of the tech law firm landscape and we zeroed in quickly on what I wanted and where I could get that. A few years after my lateral switch, I can’t thank them enough and for anyone considering a similar career move, can’t recommend them enough.
- BEN ROSALES
Corporate, Emerging Growth Companies Associate at Goodwin
I wouldn’t be at my current in-house job right now without Jordan’s help with the intermediate steps. I can't recommend him more highly. He’s incredibly well versed in Big Law and is your secret weapon for interview prep — it seems like he knows everybody and he does a great job of helping you frame your move.
Deputy General Counsel at Stoke Therapeutics, former PE M&A and Emerging Companies at Fenwick & West
Francis is not only awesome at what he does, but also is an all around great person to work with and to know. He has been a trusted advisor for me throughout my process of lateraling to a new firm in all respects, and has helped me to navigate the business-related aspects of the move (interviewing, negotiating the offer, etc.) as well as talking me through the things that would affect my personal life and career objectives. He is an organized, responsive and well-connected 'people-person' who goes above and beyond the typical role of a recruiter to make sure his clients are taken care of.
- JASMINE JOSEPH
Early Stage and Venture Capital Associate at Latham & Watkins
Very dependable and responsive, Francis was instrumental in my search for a position in the media/tech transactions space. He took the time to understand what type of role I was looking for and provided invaluable guidance every step of the way.
- MERISSA PICO
Technology Transactions Associate at Covington
Josh and the Whistler team knew what I wanted before I did. Josh is warm, personable and thoughtful and made sure I was prepared for a series of interviews with what would quickly become my top choice. I am happy and thriving at my new firm because of Josh and the Whistler team.
Emerging Companies & Venture Capital Associate at Bay Area Startup Firm
Working with Josh was awesome. He knows the tech space better than anyone and worked tirelessly to make sure I found the best fit for me. Throughout the entire process, he gave practical and sound advice and served as a tremendous resource and sounding board. His connections and knowledge of the tech space run deep, and he’ll also shoot you straight at every step. He’s a true professional, and I highly recommend engaging Josh as your recruiter.
Technology Mergers & Acquisitions Associate at Top Tech Firm
Taylor and I met after I had spoken with another legal recruiter who completely dismissed the transition I was looking to make as “impossible.” I insisted that I wanted to move from Project Finance to EC/VC and he pointed me to Taylor. After a few seconds on the phone I could tell this was the guy and he was at the firm that was going to get me there. Taylor, and Whistler Partners for that matter, are frankly the best at what they do. They leverage personal and professional connections to get you where you want to go. After hearing time and time again that it was impossible to have the career I wanted, here came Taylor who didn’t point out a problem, but instead offered a solution. Low and behold, Taylor’s strategy worked out and today I am an EC/VC associate at a top 3 firm for EC/VC.
Emerging Companies & Venture Capital Associate at Wilson Sonsini
Taylor made my dream job a reality. From our first call, I could tell that he had done his homework, genuinely cared about my career goals, and wanted to help me accomplish them. He understands the nuances of the media, entertainment, and technology legal market. Taylor thoughtfully and carefully curated potential lateral opportunities, found the perfect fit, and made the process seamless. I always felt that Taylor was invested in me for the long haul, and he has been a trusted adviser and friend.
- PHIL HILL
Soft IP Litigation Associate at Covington
Taylor has been fantastic as a recruiter, and has been a great friend over the years. When I first talked to Taylor, I told him that I had no intention of moving for the next year or so, but he was still happy to meet up with me and gave me honest advice about the lateral market. About a year later, when I was finally ready to lateral, I called Taylor again and learned that he was a great partner throughout the whole process. From giving me interviewing tips to helping me negotiate my signing bonus, Taylor helped me through each and every step. Most importantly, he came through with great opportunities that fit my career goals, and helped me land the job that I wanted.
Emerging Companies and Venture Capital Associate at Top Startups Firm
Taylor and Whistler know what they’re doing in this market. They took the time to get to know me and my career goals so we could focus only on positions that would make a great fit. They have live knowledge of what’s market and use it to time things just right. It’s clear they’re playing the long game with the professionals they work with, and I’d be happy to partner again with them in the future.
- MONTANA WARE
Emerging Companies and Venture Capital Associate at Orrick
I'd like to thank you so much for your assistance throughout the recruiting process, and for helping us find a great candidate. We're so appreciative of Whistler's support!
- LEIGH CHECCHIO
General Counsel at The Trevor Project
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.
General Counsel at Crypto Startup
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.
- TOMER STEIN
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.
Emerging Companies Associate at AmLaw100 Firm
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.
IP Licensing & Technology Transactions Associate at Top Tech Firm
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.
- LANCE TAUBIN
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... Most importantly, when I received my offer, 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!
Emerging Companies Associate at Top Startup Firm
Sean-wanted to tell you how much I appreciate what you and you team are doing for us, and for the fact that you “get” our vision etc. You were right when you first called me – both firms are a perfect fit in terms of how we see the world. I’m excited for xxxxxxxxxx to grow with Whistler and to build something very cool and ready for the future. I’m looking forward to doing some great deals with you.
Just wanted to drop a line – don’t share this – it’ll ruin my image…😊
CEO and Managing Partner of Top Media & Tech Firm
Whistler has been an invaluable partner to our firm as we have grown over the years. Sean Burke and his team really took the time to get to know what is unique and special about our firm – which translated into Whistler being able to consistently bring us candidates who are a great fit.
- JEFFREY GREENBAUM
Managing Partner at Frankfurt Kurnit
Tad and Emily helped me work through a difficult, risky transition - my practice group experienced several senior departures at once, and I had to decide quickly whether to go or stay, and if going, where to go. Lots of calls and meetings, and more than one kick in the ass later, all courtesy of my friends at Whistler, I landed on my feet, in a better situation than where I started. Thanks, again, for taking good care of me.
- ROBERT WEISS
Asset Management and Investment Funds Counsel at K&L Gates
Working with the Whistler team was an absolute pleasure. I can’t think of another firm that could have put so many well-qualified candidates together for a single opening.
General Counsel at B2B SaaS startup
Working with Tad was such a delight. His positive energy and sense of humor made the recruiting process way more enjoyable, and on top of that, he was so well-versed in the ECVC field that I could always rely on his knowledge. He was always available - even when his baby was crying or sleeping in the same room. Thanks Tad and Whistler Partners!
- CHRISTINA KWAK
Mergers & Acquisitions Associate at Fenwick & West
I am so thrilled to begin my new position at Latham & Watkins, and due to Julieta’s expertise and guidance, know this will be an excellent next step for me professionally and an excellent fit for me personally. Julieta was more than a top-notch and keenly intelligent recruiter: she was a negotiator, a sounding board, an advisor, a quasi-therapist and a true ally. I cannot thank her enough for all she did for me!
Corporate Associate at Latham & Watkins
Just wanted to say I hope you don't mind that I keep sending people your way. I know it's your job, but it still feels like you're doing me a favor whenever you take the time to connect with my friends.
If it wasn't already clear, I enjoyed working with you when lateraling myself and feel comfortable referring others to you since I know your approach isn't one that ignores people's personal goals just for the sake of placing them somewhere.
Capital Markets Associate at DLA Piper
I’ll always think of my legal career as BT / AT. Before Tad and After Tad. More than a terrific agent, he’s the best mentor, coach and teammate a young lawyer could ever have. Beyond the experience, beyond the connections, beyond the strategy and the sheer amount of effort he puts in, what sets Tad apart is his genuine love for the work... Tad is Jerry Maguire, Bill Belichick, and Jerry Rice all rolled into one. More than a terrific agent, more than a legendary career coach, truly a teammate on the legal field. He knows the players, the strategy, and the competition, and won’t stop until he delivers. If you want to win, go with Whistler.
Private Equity & Venture Capital Associate at Top Startup Firm
When I said I wanted to move to Los Angeles permanently and pivot to working with tech start-ups, my law school classmates highly recommended Josh Bilgrei at Whistler Partners; Josh had placed several of my classmates and was quickly becoming our go-to recruiter. They felt that even though the market was quiet, if anyone could help me make the move, it would be Josh. Where others said "impossible" or "unlikely", Josh never gave up and thought creatively to make sure we were doing everything we could to make the move happen. Perhaps most importantly, I felt that Josh always had my best interests at heart and was always guiding the process with my professional and personal goals in mind. I echo the words of my classmates and highly recommend Josh, who was a confidence-inspiring coach and guide.
