Michael C. Hutt, Esq. 

Managing Director

Michael Hutt has been a legal search consultant since 1993 and has earned a highly respected reputation as a result of his domestic US and international placements with top quality law firms, corporations, hedge funds and investment banks.

Michael got his JD from Fordham University School of Law. He also has a Masters from Stanford University and a BA from the State University of New York at Stony Brook. Prior to attending law school, Michael spent several years working in lobbying and for charitable causes.

Michael works with attorneys at all levels to find the right in-house or law firm associate, counsel or partner position. He is regularly consulted for his expertise in providing reliable and on-target career advice and guidance.

Michael is also excellent at helping candidates prepare for their interviews, talking through their skills for the position and how best to present themselves.

From the perspective of hiring managers and partners, Michael has demonstrated success working with in-house and law-firm clients in presenting them with attorney candidates who have the desired on-point experience and who are also the right fit on the intangibles, such as personality. After reading thousands upon thousands of resumes, deal sheets, business plans and job descriptions, Michael can advise attorneys on how to best write and structure these documents. Thus helping candidates increase the likelihood of getting those all important interviews and clients of finding the best match for their hiring needs. Knowing what the hiring manager/attorney is looking for and presenting one’s experience in a readable and engaging manner can make all the difference.

Michael has also worked on searches for temporary attorneys, attorney/non-attorney compliance professionals, and from time-to-time clients have asked him to find non-lawyers for various other positions such as analysts, or in real estate.
