-Tom Minogue, Chairman, Thompson Coburn LLP


“At Thompson Coburn we’ve worked with a lot of search firms and recruiting professionals as we’ve expanded into Chicago, Washington DC and now Los Angeles. And we hold a great many of them in high regard. But simply put, there are none better than Larry Watanabe and his team at Watanabe Nason. Their knowledge of the Los Angeles marketplace is unparalleled, and they combine it with high energy, incredible responsiveness and true professionalism. They know the right questions to ask, when to ask them, and when to step aside so the lawyers can talk. And their succinct to-the-point executive summaries of every candidate they refer us are exceptionally well-done. We wouldn’t have made it into Los Angeles without their able assistance, and my only reservation in commending them to you is that they may send you somebody they don’t send us!”
