Brendan White

Brendan White Principal and Founder

With over twenty-five year experience in the legal search and litigation support services, Brendan works on high-level partner searches and has been part of teams that have completed major group acquisitions for leading national and international law firms. He has an extensive network of contacts around the country that keep him "in the know" and allow him to effectively communicate "why" an opportunity is worth pursuing. Anyone who has received a voicemail from Brendan knows this to be true.

Brendan lives in Santa Monica, California and in his spare time works on his fitness, his "hit or miss" golf game, walking his rescue dog and has recently taken up surfing. He is an active volunteer with the Surfrider Foundation and, along with his daughter, supports various dog rescue shelters in West Los Angeles.
