Testimonials for Ralph A. Blessey, Esq.

“I first met Ralph early in my career as a law firm associate.  Ralph immediately stood out from other recruiters by demonstrating a genuine interest in my career development.  I was also impressed by his integrity, professionalism, comprehensive market knowledge and extensive network of contacts.  Ralph and I evaluated a number of opportunities and offers together and, thanks in large part to Ralph’s guidance, I waited for the right opportunity and was able to make a successful lateral transition to a prestigious international law firm.  Following my lateral transition, Ralph maintained regular contact with me and established himself as a trusted career coach, helping me identify and work toward long-term career goals.

Most recently, Ralph introduced me to his colleague Catherine, who was leading an in-house search for a prominent, publicly traded company.  Like Ralph, Catherine demonstrated a genuine interest in my career development and an uncompromising commitment to finding the right fit.  Catherine’s extensive experience, insight and support were key factors in my being chosen as the winning candidate.  I am extremely grateful for the role that Ralph and Catherine have played in my career and offer my highest recommendation.”

“I retained Ralph to work on an Associate Counsel search at my company.  I found Ralph to be very knowledgeable, efficient and thorough.  The candidates he submitted were all on point and the candidate he ultimately found for us has worked out fantastically.  I would highly recommend using Ralph on any in-house search. You won’t be disappointed.”

Irene Carlson, General Counsel, Media Company

“I engaged Ralph multiple times to assist me in building my in-house team while I was General Counsel of a publicly-traded medical device company.  On all of the search engagements I found Ralph to be responsive, collaborative, knowledgeable and hard working.  The candidates that he sent all fit within the search parameters and his analysis of candidates was always thorough. He took the time to really vet the candidates and identified their strengths and weaknesses which made for a very efficient interview process.  I would highly recommend using Ralph to identify top legal talent.  His has his pulse on the market and won’t waste your time.”

Mark Farber, Chairman, Farber LLC

“I contacted Ralph to assist me in an assistant general counsel search. The requirements for the position were such that there was only a limited pool of qualified candidates. Before initiating the search, Ralph met with me to get a clear understanding of what I was looking for and the type of candidates who would be the best “fit” with me and the other members of my department. Armed with that information, Ralph identified several quality individuals within only a few days. After a series of initial interviews with some promising candidates, Ralph and I met again to refine some of the original requirements. At every step, Ralph was engaged, patient and cooperative. He offered meaningful suggestions and proposed alternate strategies in order to maintain the momentum of the search. Ultimately, the individual that Ralph found to fill the position was better than I could have imagined, and after 18 months everyone one in my company remains extremely satisfied with the outcome. In fact, I am a little concerned that the person Ralph found for the position will take my job soon, so I am keeping Ralph on speed dial.”
