“After joining a new company as CFO, I was introduced to Astral through a respected peer at a Magic Circle firm to help fill a critical role leading the legal department. This was a new position which did not initially have a fully developed job description. Despite limited information about the role or our privately owned company, they quickly learned about our business and sourced several high-quality candidates for us to consider. During the recruiting process, Astral were extremely responsive and professional to both our firm as well as the candidates which not only resulted in us filling this position with a high performing General Counsel but also left a positive impression on the marketplace for other candidates interviewing for the spot. I will definitely use Astral for any future searches and certainly would recommend her to other firms.”
