  1. I think you ought to include Longbridge Law ( formally ASA Law ) as they are the only niche expert recruiters in the medical malpractice field.

  2. What makes a good recruiter?
    1.)Professional service, with no bullsh*t
    2.)Good contacts with Law Firms.
    Shilton Sharpe Quarry has both.

    I have used Shilton Sharpe Quarry before after a referral from a friend, they were professional and have a strong network of contacts (they came from the Quarry Dougal group from many years ago).
    I strongly recommend.

  3. I agree with the above. I have used SSQ as both a candidate (a few years ago now!) and as a client after making partner. I recommend without reservation.
