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.

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.

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.

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
I spent over 6 months trying to hire the right in-house GC, using different agencies and interviewing dozens of candidates. Then came Becca and Kathleen. They spent a considerable amount of time with me to understand the role, and more importantly to understand our company's culture. Their 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
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
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
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.

-JON ALLAN
Deputy General Counsel at Stoke Therapeutics, former PE M&A and Emerging Companies at Fenwick & West
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.

JOSE CORTE-REAL
Emerging Companies & Venture Capital Associate at Wilson Sonsini
Despite the fact that he is a rabid Jets and Mets fan, Jon Drucker is anything but a loser. He provided critical advice and insights to me as I mulled over my options and ultimately joined a firm as a lateral associate thanks to Whistler. Jon is a jack of all trades when it comes to recruiting. He even recommended a contractor I am using for my new home.

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.

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
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. In particular, Becca Blank was an absolute ROCK STAR, who went over and above to make the process as smooth as possible. I consider her not only a resource for the legal market, but a true friend!

General Counsel at B2B SaaS startup
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.
