“Larry Watanabe’s knowledge of the recent trends and future direction of the legal market are simply amazing.  He truly understands the practice, culture, people, priorities and needs of each law firm.  He takes the time to know the personality and strengths of each candidate and then matches each candidate to the right opportunity.  He gives tremendous personal time and 24/7 attention, efficiently directs the process, ensures that all the right questions are asked and answered, and is both a sounding board and a sage advisor each step of the way. Most importantly, Larry cares deeply about placing each candidate in the best place where he or she will excel in the future.  Making a move is not easy.  I could not have made this move without Larry.  His insight, wisdom, guidance, personal attention and integrity were invaluable to me. I trust Larry and highly recommend him to anyone looking to move.  Larry’s reputation as the premier law partner recruiter on the West Coast is well deserved”.
