tml Partners acts as Strategic Recruitment Partner for King & Spalding

Case Studies

King & Spalding LLP is an AM Law 100, global 30, white-shoe American international corporate law firm headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia with offices located in North America, Europe and Asia. It has over 1,100 lawyers in 23 offices globally.

After a positive recommendation to the business, David Price and Tish De Beer became the core team from tml Partners, working with BD Director, Rita Zasowski and CMO, Kevin Cavanaugh, as a strategic recruitment partner. We were to lead the search for a number of critical business development hires across the US to grow the business across core practice and sector groups as well as build out the international BD function in Europe.

The move to fully remote working during the pandemic has seen a huge uplift in the number of international mandates for tml Partners over the last couple of years due to increased accessibility, acceleration in digital and technology transformation and the joined up global nature of working. As a result, King & Spalding were able to partner with a dedicated specialist in the field of marketing and BD, rather than being restricted to recruitment firms within close proximity.

Rita said “It was an absolute delight to work with the team at tml Partners on this search. They spent a good bit of time up front with questions that demonstrated that they were keen to understand our model and priorities as well as our culture. Their screens were thorough and their feedback was balanced throughout the process, helping us to assess and validate the strengths and weaknesses we saw in our candidates.  I especially appreciated that they proactively communicated throughout the process and I always knew where things stood. We are incredibly pleased with the result and have continued to request them for our searches.”
