Our clients encompass law firms, litigation support firms, accounting firms and management consulting firms. Our clients seek a wide array of skill sets and levels, including Individuals, groups, practices or firms. These include prominent economists, data scientists, attorneys and accountants with a variety of advanced degrees. We successfully place professional talent ranging from a PhD economist two years out of graduate school to a firm seeking acquisition. We help our candidates grow in the following areas:
Full Cycle Placement
We understand each component of assessing candidate criteria, developing a search strategy and research, presenting qualifications to hiring authorities at targeted companies, managing interviews and references, managing client concerns or roadblocks, negotiating a desirable compensation package and assessing the optimal timing for a transition. We are with our candidates each step of the way, from initial meeting to well into employment with a new firm.
Experienced with Needs of Revenue Generators
We have experience with the pitfalls of recruiting business generators, including non-compete/non-solicit employee agreements, timing with respect to quarterly and annual bonuses, and balancing confidentiality with need-to-know information (NDAs).

Risk and Legal Advisory
ASA frequently recommends to clients pertinent use of non-disclosure agreements, indemnifying candidates from unfair and restrictive non-compete/non-solicit agreements, and strategies to avoid other legal pitfalls.
Counter Offer Advisory
When experts give notice it is common for their current employers to apply considerable pressure to stay. It can be standard operating procedure for firms to offer compelling promises of promotion and additional income to retain their valuable people. Our experience and long-term research has given us critical information to share with candidates.
Management of Search Process
ASA communicates best arguments to clients to optimize compensation results that are mutually acceptable; and manages expectations of clients to avoid inappropriate offers.
