Who We Are
Over 20+ Years of Experience
Gillman Strategic Group, LLC, led by Jennifer Gillman, is a “law firm matchmaker” that helps successful partners with significant portable business find a better fit at a new law firm.
We work with individual partners and groups of partners who have their own clients and are at the wrong firm. If you aren’t happy where you are, or if you struggle to keep your clients happy, then you are at the wrong firm, and we can help.
Our Core Values
We like to sleep at night
We only recommend a job change that we believe is an improvement, even if it means telling the candidate to stay where they are.
All in or not at all
Both candidate and our company must be fully committed, or we won’t move forward. We only work with candidates who appreciate our service and understand its value.
No Eeyores allowed
Everyone who works at our company has to be upbeat, cooperative, and resourceful, and we try to keep the process stress-free for our candidates.
This is a big life decision for our candidates, so we make ourselves available whenever possible, even outside of business hours.
Confidentiality is a given
Candidates never have to worry about their confidentiality being compromised.
