"The success rate of lateral partner hires is unacceptable. There is a fundamental disconnect between law firms and prospective lateral hires, where decisions are based more on speculation rather than analysis of the opportunity similar to a deal or case for one of their clients. I founded Gold Street Legal Search to provide law firms and lateral partners with the necessary metrics and legal search expertise to make a better calculated lateral move, mitigating risk for both parties."
-Raj Selvadurai, Founder, Gold Street Legal Search

He has extensive knowledge of the inner workings at various law firms, their cultures and market positions, which makes him an invaluable source of information. He has the ability to expertly identify and target the ideal candidate, combining attention to detail with the innate ability to read between the lines, instilling a trust and confidence with his clients. I would recommend him to any law firm partner looking to make a move and to any law firm looking to add high quality, valuable partners."

"Raj is one of the most immediately likable guys you could ever run into, with a big smile and a bigger personality. But if you think that's what Raj is all about, you have grievously underestimated him. He thinks big and grasps where the industry is and where it needs to be, in thoughtful, insightful, and sometimes contrarian ways. I have tremendous respect for Raj and what he's doing."
Bruce MacEwen, President of Adam Smith, Esq
