“Believe the hype. If there were a legal recruiting superhero, his name would be Larry Watanabe. Larry has encyclopedic knowledge of the California legal market and unparalleled experience placing law firm partners in new homes. But Larry’s superpower is his ability to understand what his clients need and make it a reality. Larry does this with honesty, integrity, and a ton of passion. He acts quickly but thoughtfully—and treats every client like his only client. I am incredibly grateful to Larry and his team for helping me find my way to Gibson Dunn.”
