Testimonials

“I have known Richard and Charles Park Search and Selection for a number of years in my role as senior partner of Pitmans LLP. I have worked with Richard on key strategic M&A projects during this time and his grasp of the legal community is second to none. Richard worked on a very discrete project for me recently and was completely professional throughout our dealings. He secured the perfect solution within a very tight time frame and was most impressive in his negotiations with a number of interested parties. He is a great guy and above all fun to work with.”

“…a breath of fresh air! In recent experience I felt I had missed out on the personal, considered and advisory role that an experienced, professional recruiter offers. I was a statistic or the next month’s pay cheque/commission…. I genuinely appreciated the time and effort and advice you gave me. Your views and opinions, knowledge of the private client sector and down to earth attitude made what was a fairly hefty life change, much easier. I certainly don’t think that most legal recruiters would have taken as many late night calls from a candidate!

Above all what was clear from how you conducted yourself was that it was not any old candidate through any old door, your integrity shone through in ensuring that what was negotiated was fair & workable for both the firm and me. That sets you apart from others, in fact I think it makes you unique! It didn’t make life easy for you but the outcome was right for all sides in the end and not all consultants would have been capable of that level of negotiation I am sure. So thank you very much!”
