"Larry’s competitive advantage is that he has a deep knowledge and understanding of the DC legal market, and he takes the time to understand his candidates’ skills and goals. As a result, Larry has a knack for guiding his candidates to exactly the right spot. He is the only recruiter I’ll call."
Nick Oldham, King & Spalding
"Larry and I practiced law together and I’ve known him for more than 20 years. He has been an invaluable resource to me throughout my career, having acted as a mentor, counselor, and a source of expertise in the legal talent market. Larry helped me develop a business plan and prepare for interviews when I was seeking to make a lateral move to another law firm and he helped me update my resume when I was seeking an in-house position after many years in private practice. As a former managing partner of a large local office of a national law firm, Larry understands legal placement from the perspective of both the institution and the talent."
Partner, Tayman Lane Chaverri LLP (former partner at, inter alia, Jones Day)
“Starting out on your own is a tremendous step —no matter how prepared, you still don’t know what you don’t know. That’s why having Larry Latourette in my corner was so important. Larry not only understands what it takes to get started but he also the practical experience to provide answers (and the connections to help with execution). The ultimate trusted adviser, Larry always went the extra mile for me, making my success his success. I recommend him 1,000 percent.”

"Larry’s advice and good counsel have been extraordinarily helpful at critical moments in several of my projects. He has an instinctive grasp of both professional issues and the human side of complex challenges. He is one of the most principled persons I know, and his guidance is always grounded in a clear vision of getting the fundamentals right."
Author and Journalist (former Director of Communications for major law firm)
"Larry Latourette knows law firms inside out -- particularly those in Washington, DC and New York -- and is well-equipped to assist lawyers and law firms who seek new challenges and opportunities. He cares deeply about his clients, and seeks to assure that individuals seeking law firm opportunities land in the very best places for them. His powerful intellect (Harvard Law, Cum Laude), knowledge of workings of law firms (former Managing Partner of a large washington firm) and great people skills produce significant and positive results for lawyers seeking to join new firms (particularly lateral entries) and for firms seeking to add or expand practice areas. While Larry enjoys success as much as anyone, I know that he has counselled clients not to jump at some offers -- despite giving up fees if his advice is followed. ('Not a good fit,' he says.) He really is the best at what he does.
