– Randall R. Lee, White Collar Litigation Partner, Cooley LLP

“I was not actively looking to make a move but agreed to meet with Larry and Ken.  They provided sage and thoughtful advice that resonated with me – namely, that I was at a point in my career where I should make an informed and intentional decision about whether to stay at my firm or make a move, and that even if I ultimately decided to stay where I was, I should treat that as a conscious choice rather than to let inertia dictate my future.  After a discussion about my goals and objectives, Larry suggested that Cooley would be an ideal fit from both a strategic and cultural standpoint.  Given my prior dealings with Larry in my capacity as a hiring partner, I had confidence in his knowledge of the market.  More importantly, however, his sense of what was important to me, what I was looking for at this juncture of my career, and what firm would be a good fit proved to be spot on.  And throughout the sometimes anxiety-provoking process, both Larry and Ken provided candid and helpful advice as well as reassurance and encouragement when it was needed.  I always had great confidence that they were genuinely interested in helping me make the right decision – whatever that turned out to be.  I’m delighted to have made this move, and I have Larry and Ken to thank for making it happen.”
