Client requirement
A global manufacturing and services business required an experienced in-house lawyer to fill in as their Regional General Counsel for Asia Pacific for a 7-month maternity leave cover.

Dovetail solution
We quickly connected the client with a recommended Dovetail lawyer who had industry-relevant experience as well as the skills and traits being sought by the business.

Outcome
We provided our client with two recommended options within 48 hours, interviews were held within a week and an offer was confirmed with the client’s preferred lawyer shortly after. Dovetail filled the role quickly and successfully in less than 2 weeks.

The placement was clearly a success for both client and lawyer as our Dovetail lawyer was converted across to a permanent employee of the client.
