Jonathan Birenbaum is a Senior Director in New York. Jonathan specializes in the recruitment of partners, counsel, associates and groups on behalf of law firms and attorneys for in-house counsel roles with top companies in the New York area, the US, Canada and internationally. He also actively works on large group acquisitions, as well as law firm mergers, in the US and Canada.

Before joining Lateral Link in 2012, Jonathan was a Director of Recruiting with a well-established legal recruiting company for five years after practicing law as a litigator with a national litigation firm and boutique litigation firm in Manhattan, as well as serving as an Assistant Attorney General with the New York State Attorney General’s Office and as an Assistant Corporation Counsel with The City of New York.  Jonathan holds a J.D. from St. John’s University School of Law and a B.A. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Jonathan was instrumental in assisting me with my lateral move as a partner with an AmLaw firm to another AmLaw firm, a move which resulted in a leadership role with the Labor and Employment Department of my new firm. Jonathan is a true professional and a reliable and trustworthy advocate, with a keen understanding and appreciation of the challenges that are part and parcel of the life of a busy lawyer. He was a pleasure to work with, and I would enthusiastically recommend him to anyone who may be considering a move.
