“Rob Green is a great legal recruiter. He has an in-depth familiarity with the legal job market in China, and is also very professional and personable. I enjoyed working with him very much and would highly recommend him to others.”

“As HR Manager for a national law firm recruiting senior and specialist lawyers, my briefs to GRM and their candidate submissions were always on point. GRM took the time to work with me to understand the firm’s culture, team fit, and the requisite skills, experience and competencies required for the role.”

“Dale called me out of the blue about a fantastic opportunity which he thought would be of interest to me. I was very content in my job at the time but also flattered by the approach. Before I could blink, I had taken on a new job! I am extremely grateful to Dale for introducing me to this opportunity. He not only facilitated and assisted me in all the negotiations but provided guidance, coaching and support en route. Dale is always available for a chat, regularly ‘checks-in’ and he is incredibly attentive, diligent and knowledgeable. He is 100% the reason for me being in the fortunate position that I am in today and I am eternally grateful. Thanks Dale.”
