The Manning Group has been fortunate to have successfully connected many law firms, partners and associates to develop strong and lasting mutually beneficial professional relationships. Below are testimonials from some of the lawyers who have worked with The Manning Group:

“My colleague and I worked with The Manning Group in searching for a firm that fit our practice criteria – one with a national platform, a sufficient breadth of practice and a flexible rate structure. The firm provided us with a well-composed list of viable options and walked us through why each firm might be a fit. Chris then very efficiently led us through the interview, due diligence and onboarding processes as seamlessly as possible. Our experience with Chris was very transparent, fluid and collaborative. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking to make a serious move.” – Complex Litigation Group
“Chris approached me about a practice group leadership position at a firm with which he worked closely. I was generally happy at my then-current firm but Chris was able to transparently articulate the advantages presented by making a move to the firm he represented. The due diligence process of making a move is always somewhat arduous but Chris did an exemplary job of assisting me throughout the process and making the transition as seamless and smooth as can be. Chris has now helped me recruit other partners to our group and has proved to be a very valuable asset to my new firm.” – Government Contracts/Construction Partner and Practice Group Leader
“As one might imagine, I have received innumerable calls from headhunters like many mid-level associates. However, I took Chris’ call and decided to work with him because he was always forthright, honest and understanding of my needs and the dynamics of the marketplace. I had a few unique demands (including geographic) in what I looked for in a law firm and Chris was always very understanding and helped me navigate and maximize what I was ultimately offered. Chris was a significant value-add to my recruitment process and is certainly a cut above other headhunters.” – Privacy Associate
“As a partner at an AmLaw 100 law firm, I was faced with a conflict of interest challenge at my firm which seriously jeopardized my ability to continue to service major clients. I approached The Manning Group for their assistance and they guided me through the process of examining various law firm platforms and narrowing in on particularly good options. My move required a very quick turn-around and The Manning Group was extremely responsive and attentive to every minute detail throughout the process of getting me to a firm better suited to my clients and my practice.” – Government Contracts Partner
“Chris contacted me about a very specific high profile associate opportunity with a prominent health care practice in DC. Chris was exceptionally thorough in explaining the position to me and assisted me with everything from preparing my resume and other written materials to interview preparation to giving notice and everything in between. Chris was a fabulous help to get me to a firm I hope to work with for the entirety of my career.” – Healthcare Associate
“I am a prominent partner in a Midwestern market who was approached by Chris on behalf of an AmLaw 5 firm who was seeking a partner with my credentialing and profile. Despite being a great distance away, Chris was very helpful in assisting me with every step of the lateral process. My practice is fairly narrow and somewhat unique but Chris was adept at understanding my practice and also my particular needs in making a move. Chris was responsive, detail-oriented and always available to get answers to any questions I had throughout the process. I am very happy to have worked with Chris and would highly recommend him to anyone else in the market.” – Healthcare Partner
“I was not necessarily looking to make a career move but, when Chris contacted me about a particular associate position in a firm with which he works very intimately, I was impressed by Chris’ knowledge of the DC market, his understanding of my practice and his intuition in knowing what would be a good fit for me. Chris supported me throughout the lateral process and I am extremely happy to have made the move he suggested.” – Real Estate Associate
“I was originally approached by Chris about a particularly attractive associate opportunity. That opportunity ended up being filled by an internal referral but Chris quickly pivoted to suggesting other firms that would be a good fit for my practice and the platform I sought. Chris’ deep understanding of the DC market helped me find the right fit and I am extremely happy with the firm I joined with Chris’ assistance.” – International Trade Associate
