International legal recruitment specialists, Laurence Simons, has launched a new operation in Chicago, USA. The Chicago office will cover In-house, Private Practice and Compliance appointments in the Midwest and Rocky Mountain regions, which include but are not limited to Chicago, Milwaukee, Madison, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Indianapolis, Denver/Boulder, St. Louis, Kansas City and all major cities in Ohio and Iowa. Laurence Simons is part of the global multi brand recruitment family, FiveTen Group.
Naveen Tuli (inset), Global Managing Director of Laurence Simons says, “The launch of our Chicago operation is testament to the pioneering spirit within Laurence Simons. Since launching 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.
Laurence Simons has appointed Laura Rusche as Managing Consultant of the Chicago legal recruitment operation. Rusche will report into 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 Laura (inset) worked as Managing Director of a legal recruitment firm in Chicago. With five years’ experience as a commercial litigator at two well-known Chicago-based law firms, Laura will bring a wealth of relevant experience to bear for her client base – she will be a huge asset for a talent seeking business such as Laurence Simons.
Laura Rusche says: “I am thrilled to be a part of the Laurence Simons operation in the US and I look forward to bringing to the table knowledge and expertise gained in the Midwest and Rocky Mountains Region. Laurence Simons is a well respected brand in New York and I am exhilarated by the prospect of carrying this reputation into Chicago and its surrounding regions”.
Naveen Tuli said: “Whilst the Laurence Simons team in New York has built a strong business in the US, the launch of our Chicago operation is a step change in the breadth of our offering to our US clients. Laura will work closely with our teams in New York as well as our fourteen other international offices. I look forward to Laura contributing to our thriving US operation”.
