“My organization recently worked with Randi Bean, the President at Life After Law, to recruit a corporate Legal Counsel which has historically been a difficult position for us to fill. She took the time to understand our requirements, and the context in which or our organization works. Her guidance and deliverables were always thorough and timely. A major value-add for us was the candidate description that was provided to us along with the resume and cover letter for each potential candidate. These candidate descriptions gave us additional information about the candidates’ motivations and backgrounds in line with our context, which led us to consider individuals who may have been overlooked based on their CV alone. I look forward to working with our new Legal Counsel, and thank Randi and the Life After Law team for a job well done.”

I have had the pleasure of working with Pearl and Life After Law on various legal roles since 2017.
Pearl is extremely knowledgeable and professional and has taken the time to understand not only the technical requirements of each role but has also taken the time to learn about and understand our corporate culture and the expectations. Over the years, Pearl has been successful at referring the right candidates for each role and has been successful at filling every role we have engaged her for.
Even though we are not a high volume client, she has always been very supportive and responsive, has always had a calm demeanor but understood our sense of urgency and has always been available for whenever required.
I have had only positive and successful interactions and experiences from Pearl and Life After Law.

I’ve had the pleasure and good fortune to work with Randi’s team at Life After Law for many years while I was at different organizations and can confidently say she is one of the most effective and reliable search partners I have worked with. Randi takes the time to understand both the role and organizations and always does a great job at representing both in the market while engaged on a search. She has never once left me hanging for an update or response and the feedback I have received from candidates whom she has placed has been equally positive. I would wholeheartedly recommend Life After Law as a reliable and competent search firm.
