Career Building

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:

International Tax/
Transfer Pricing

Litigation Support

Forensics and

Business Valuation


Data Analytics
& Cybersecurity


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.

Market Research

We conduct in-depth and highly informed research for the best options for candidates based on candidate/group criteria. We believe in providing multiple viable opportunities to our candidates.

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).

Development & Presentation of Qualifications

Utilizing extensive background criteria from hiring authorities, in-depth discussions with candidates and any written materials, we develop a compelling narrative for potential employers/suitors to review in an organized, easy to understand format.

Business Plan Development

Most people are somewhat uncomfortable estimating future revenue streams. We work closely with business generators/practices to assist with the various approaches that generate an accurate/persuasive business plan.

Employment Contract Analysis/Advisory

Having reviewed hundreds of employment agreements from multiple firms, we can advise what steps to take in transitioning from one firm to another. This sometimes includes communication with the general counsel of client companies and referrals to top labor & employment attorneys. On rare occasions, we will discuss indemnification when it may be required.

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

We often are representing our candidates with 3-5 opportunities simultaneously. Managing logistics/expectations of respective parties to limit miscommunication or misinformation at all stages of the acquisition/hiring process can be as complicated as it is time consuming. We do our best to manage interview cycles with each client so that multiple offers are made in the same timeframe. For obvious reasons, long periods between offers can be uncomfortable and yield undesired pressure and results.

Compensation Negotiation

ASA communicates best arguments to clients to optimize compensation results that are mutually acceptable; and manages expectations of clients to avoid inappropriate offers.
