Senior Consultant, Legal Services (US)
Larissa is an award-winning Senior Consultant within the US Legal Services team at Jameson Legal. She focuses on recruiting partners and associates in Corporate, Energy, Technology and surrounding practice areas within the USA.
Prior to becoming a headhunter, Larissa started her career as a lawyer; she completed her training contract at Clifford Chance which included working in Projects and Corporate M&A in Tier 1 teams. Larissa subsequently moved as a Litigator to a litigation boutique which has subsequently been acquired by a Big 4 Company.
Larissa offers an alternative approach to other recruiters, using the technical expertise developed during her legal career and extensive market knowledge to assist clients and candidates in finding exactly what they are looking for. Larissa will never push a candidate into a role they aren’t perfect for, and vice versa. She takes a ‘best friend’ approach with her candidates – Larissa gets to know them personally so she can give them the best advice possible on where to look in the market.
Equally, Larissa gets to know the business needs of her clients in a way other recruiters are unable. Her private practice experience gives her a unique perspective on what a particular team needs not only at that moment in time, but years into the future. Larissa prides herself on her success thus far; to this date none of her candidates have made a subsequent move since joining the firm she has placed them in.
