Helping a US firm reshape their Paris office
- We acted for a US firm looking to make a game changing recruitment for the Paris office that would lead to significant partner additions and a change of management.
- Fox Rodney knew a particular Global firm was in trouble. This firm was quickly identified as a key target.
- Fox Rodney contacted a partner from this firm with whom we always had a strong relationship. He became our main contact during the discussions. We quickly had discussions with a team of 9 partners.
- It became public knowledge that the target firm had major difficulties and the partners we were in discussions with started to be approached by many firms.
- Fox Rodney had to be quick and efficient.
- The client had to compete with certain other major firms
- Completed the search with the placement of 7 partners.
- We have contributed to change the management of the firm with some partners who became part of the Paris executive committee.
What did we receive from the client that contributed to the success of the search?
- The significant involvement of the client and a process which was led by the top management of the firm.
