Industries legal

Legal and Professional Services

The global legal industry is in a constant state of evolution, as economics and technology drive the business model. Law firms need forward-thinking leaders with a higher level of sophistication and vision, and an executive search firm that understands the legal industry inside-out. The Alexander Group has served the business side of the legal industry longer and more successfully than any search firm in the United States.

We take pride in building enduring relationships with our law firm clients. This connection helps us understand the needs and unique culture of each firm. It allows us to think outside the box and look beyond the legal industry to identify and recruit the best-possible candidates for their specific needs.

The Alexander Group helps manufacturers find the leaders they need to compete and thrive in a global economy. We have successfully completed hundreds of searches for companies in the manufacturing and industrial sector, in all parts of the world.

We drill down into our clients’ operations to understand their business practices, opportunities and risks, as well as their culture. Doing so enables us to identify candidates with the management and technical experience—and the personal qualities—necessary for long-term success.

This from-the-ground-up approach results in unmatched client satisfaction. Eighty-five percent of our engagements are for existing clients, far exceeding the industry average.

Industries financial

Financial Services

The Alexander Group’s history in financial services dates back to our inception. Our founders were former bankers, and our initial clients were financial firms.

Our clients in banking and private equity benefit from our robust database, global connections and proprietary research tools we’ve assembled to find and evaluate candidates. But our value goes beyond a prime list of contenders: We consult with clients throughout the search process to share our wisdom and expertise.

We help our clients find true difference-makers, and we welcome their most high-stakes searches.
