Legal recruiter Laurence Simons, part of the FiveTen Group, has opened a new office in Chicago, US. The Chicago office will cover in-house, private practice and compliance appointments in the Midwest and Rocky Mountain regions.
Laurence Simons has appointed Laura Rusche as managing consultant of the Chicago legal recruitment operation. Rusche will report to Carey Bertolet and Danice Kowalczyk, co-managing partners in the US, and will focus on further developing the Laurence Simons’ operation across the country, and in particular mid to senior level appointments within both multinationals and law firms.
Previously Rusche worked as managing director BCG Attorney Search in Chicago. She also has five years’ experience as a commercial litigator.
Naveen Tuli, global managing director of Laurence Simons, says: “The launch of our Chicago operation is testament to the pioneering spirit within Laurence Simons. Since opening our New York office in 2010, we have seen a growing demand to expand our reach in the US and I am very excited about what we will now be able to achieve as a result of this launch.”
