“We developed a great partnership with Calibrate Legal during our recent high-profile CMO search. The white glove service Calibrate Legal provided was above and beyond. Their dedication, attention to detail and project management was unparalleled and saved us many valuable partner hours and tens of thousands of dollars. We are extremely satisfied with the services we received.”

Jennifer BluesteinChief Talent Officer | Perkins Coie LLP

“Tasked with replacing a critical member of my team, with very unique skills and background experience needed, on a very short timeline - Jenny absolutely came to the rescue. Throughout the recruitment process, she demonstrated a level of professionalism and thoughtfulness that is rarely seen. Jenny perfectly balanced the need for urgency, while also being extremely strategic with her candidate recommendations. She wasn’t a “vendor”, she wasn’t a “recruiter”, she wasn’t a “headhunter” – she was a true business partner. She found me the perfect candidate and I couldn’t be happier with my experience. Her customer service mindset is truly unique and top-notch. Jenny found the needle in the haystack for me, and in record time.”

Adam BarvelsGlobal Head of Pricing and Value | Proskauer Rose LLP

“We partnered with Calibrate Legal to review our CRM/Marketing Automation technology and to evaluate our digital marketing capabilities. They gave us a comprehensive, independent report on gaps and opportunities, with clear recommendations on where to invest. Their insights enabled a disciplined assessment of available technologies and the creation of a digital roadmap to support future growth.”

Jason BovisChief Strategy Officer | Pillsbury

“When our legacy CRM vendor sunsetted their product, we were in a difficult position. Calibrate Legal helped us understand the CRM options available for law firms in the market. They designed and led an in-depth review process to identify our business requirements and match us with vendors who could meet them. At the same time, they gave us invaluable insights on the structure and composition of our marketing/BD team that we have since implemented with their help.”

Keith WhitmanChief Operating Officer | Thompson & Knight LLP

“When we needed to rebuild our approach to marketing and business development from the ground up, we asked Calibrate Legal for help. They delivered an assessment of the current BD team to identify capabilities, strengths, development opportunities, gaps, and future potential. Their consultants also gave us an independent assessment of our marketing technology that showed us the gaps we needed to bridge in the short and long term.”

Kit MurphyChief Operating Officer | Bricker & Eckler LLP

“We engaged Calibrate Legal to find the right executive-level match for our unique firm culture. Jennifer took the time to learn about us, helped us craft the perfect strategy, and brought us a slate of excellent candidates that far exceeded our expectations.”

Marc WeintraubPartner | Bailey & Glasser LLP

“I am delighted to highly recommend this team as an absolute market leader in legal services business development and marketing search and recruitment. They have handled a number of critical (and often difficult) recruitment searches for me over the past year and have done an exceptional job. Always able to source first class candidates, I have been very impressed by the professionalism, U.S. and global market knowledge, responsiveness, and commercial acumen displayed by everyone I have worked with. Just first class.”

David McCluneChief Marketing Officer | Hogan Lovells

“Throughout my 30+ years in senior management I have engaged the services of many executive search firms; I never worked more effectively, efficiently or productively with anyone as I have with Jennifer. Her knowledge of the competitive landscape, her ability to target and attract candidates in a timely manner and her judgment regarding ‘best fit’ was spot on.”

Nick TortorellaExecutive Director (retired) | Kramer Levin

Terra LiddellChief Marketing Officer | Finnegan

“We knew that the firm needed a more up-to-date approach to marketing technology, but we were not sure where to start. Calibrate Legal’s business-focused approach gave us a roadmap for the martech investments that would give us the best return.”

Nicole KershawChief Business Development Officer | Harter Secrest & Emery LLP

“Calibrate has been a true business partner and trusted adviser to us as we advance our marketing technology strategy. They produced a concise, actionable report that allowed us to create leadership consensus on the critical issues we needed to work on. They helped us design a new martech team structure and find the right talent to fill some critical skill gaps. They provided interim leadership while the team was rebuilt, and they continue to offer market insights to help us make business decisions about our marketing technology and processes.
