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!

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.

Sean called me his first day on the job nearly 20 years ago. He moved me from litigation in a failing patent boutique to IP/Corporate at a top five PPP firm. It was exactly what I asked for and completely the wrong move for me. Then, he helped me move, without getting paid for it, to a mid-sized advertising boutique where I worked happily for several years. Lastly, 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, he 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.

Partner & Co-Chair of Interactive Entertainment Group at Frankfurt Kurnit
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
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.

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.

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.

Partner & Co-Chair of Investment Funds and Asset Management at Barnes & Thornburg
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…😊

- ANONYMOUS
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.
