Melissa

Galett

Managing Consultant, Legal Division

With authentic interest and expertise, Melissa skillfully creates lasting partnerships – between attorneys and law firms; counsel and companies – that are mutually beneficial.

Since 2004, Melissa proudly places partners, associates and groups with Am Law 100 and 200, mid-size and boutique law firms, in all practice areas. 

Melissa also places in-house counsel with start-ups to mature companies in all industries across the United States, with attorneys who reliably deliver upon corporate objectives and sought after legal proficiencies.​

Melissa knows that no two law firms or organizations are identical, and no two attorneys are alike. She understands cultural dynamics, business objectives and career aspirations, and presents accomplished lawyers to compelling clients, enabling them to make valuable hires.

After a career in publishing recruitment, Melissa transitioned to legal recruiting. She quickly established herself as a highly-respected, top-performing recruiter, demonstrating a natural ability to connect with, assess and guide lawyers in making lateral moves. ​

The referrals Melissa receives truly validates that her reputation and dedication are worthy and appreciated by candidates and clients.

As a native New Yorker, Melissa revels in the pace and energy of the city. When not actively recruiting, she enjoys skiing, dining out, collaging, and spending time with her family. Melissa also co-authored the book entitled “How We Met”, published by St. Martin’s Press.​
