I was first approached by Mohit last year with a position of great interest in my field as I was looking to moving into a more niche/ specialised practice at that time. During the recruitment process, Mohit has been very helpful. Not only that he briefed me very thoroughly on the job specifications, interview tactics and what I am going to expect, he also would make sure the process went efficiently and effectively and followed up with both parties (meaning myself and the firm's HR/partners) are kept updated. He has also been very professional and responsive during the recruitment process as well as after I successfully got the job! I would highly recommend Mohit and in fact he is the best recruiter I have met and I have indeed recommended him to many of my friends in the legal field who is looking for a responsible and professional recruiter to assist them getting to their goals and developing their legal careers.
