Former practicing attorney and owner of MNF Global, a legal search firm that specializes in the permanent placement of highly credentialed IP/patent and technology attorneys.
Patent and Technology legal recruiter with a global presence focusing in the United States. I have counseled hundreds of top attorneys over the last 7 years helping them reach the next level of their career.
Mark created and ran the attorney recruitment division of our firm before moving on to MNF Global. His high integrity, passion for the legal profession, and his thoroughness to process make him one of the rising stars in his field. He receives not only my personal recommendation, but also my firm's referrals for attorney recruitment.
I'm a candidate who relies heavily on Mark's work as a recruiter and I couldn't be happier to have him on my team. Not only is he creative and tenacious in helping me reach my goals, but he's now become a friend. He has thought of approaches and angles that I've never considered and, regardless of how any of them pans out, I will be confident that the ultimate result will reflect all available options. I would recommend Mark to anyone who could use his services.
Mark is very good at what he does. He is very organized, diligent and persistent in his work. Unlike many recruiters who just try to fit a candidate in any position they have, Mark tries to understand what the candidate is looking for and provides the right counseling. He made my job search process so easy. I started receiving interview calls as soon as I started using his services. He guided me at every step throughout. He is a very nice person too. He did not stop at getting me the interview calls, he also helped me with my cross country move, and was also kind enough to check back with me after a few months how I was liking my new job. Mark has my highest respect and recommendation.
I can honestly say that I owe a great deal of my career success to Mark. When I was positioned in a job going no where, Mark advocated for me to law firms big and small. I believe that due to his perseverance and belief in my skills and potential, I received the job I currently have. He endorsed and supported me throughout the entire job search process.
Mark is always available and always ready to help candidates find their next job.
Mark is also an extremely nice guy. For example, Mark and I have had hour long conversations about topics having nothing to do with my job candidacy.
I would recommend him to any of my colleagues and friends.
Among a sea of mediocre legal recruiters, Mark is an exceptional stand-out. He seeks to truly understand what you want and why. Then, armed with such information, Mark sources and pursues only those opportunities that make sense for both you and the firms looking to hire. In my particular case, I wanted to change both the focus of my practice and my location. Only with Mark’s patience and diligence was I able to land my current position, which has turned out to be a great fit. Mark deserves, and will always have, my full endorsement.
I went to Mark during a career change and he came up with several very creative ideas. Mark followed through and was very honest about my options.
Mark takes the time to understand what we need and he then quietly goes about finding it. He's more interested in making sure we get exactly what we need than simply "making a sale." It's a long-term view and we appreciate and value that approach.
Mark is one of those rare professionals who goes well beyond what is expected in carrying out their job. I hired Mark as my consultant and recruiter and he consistently impressed me for three main reasons: His unparalleled commitment to professional ethics; His clear knowledge of the legal IP field/industry (including his personal legal experience as an attorney); and his willingness to step outside the traditional confines of his job and deliver unmatched value to those he serves.
Further, Mark's very well-honed interpersonal skills are likely responsible for not only making it a pleasure to deal with him on a daily basis, but are also likely responsible for his apparently robust network of IP contacts.
Mark was able to help me meet my highest objectives. Based on my experience on working with Mark for over a year, I highly recommend him.
Mark is one of my favorite recruiters. He is of the utmost integrity, extremely personable and very responsive. He took the time to get to know me and my career goals and never pushes any positions just to make a quick buck. He really cares about each candidate and invests in them for the long term. I highly recommend hiring Mark as a recruiter!
