Our Legal Recruiting Success

We attribute our success in legal recruiting to the authentic relationships we have developed in the Denver legal community, both with attorneys and others. Our clients and candidates continue to bestow us with their loyalty and appreciation. We take pride in the experienced, talented, and dedicated professionals who have built lasting partnerships and relationships with us. We look forward to building new relationships every day. 

I have had the pleasure of working with Elizabeth Dahill for close to 14 years. I first met her when I was the HR Coordinator at Faegre, Baker Daniels in Denver (formerly Faegre & Benson). I continued to work with Elizabeth when I became the Director of Human Resources at Moye White LLP, a Denver based law firm. Elizabeth already had an established relationship with Moye White, LLP and it was great to continue to work with her, especially on our high level attorney placements. Elizabeth is an extremely knowledgeable, professional and hard-working individual. She’s very well connected within the legal community, not only locally, but nationally and is a trusted and respected go to person for recruiting.

Elizabeth Dahill is far and away the best executive recruiter I have ever worked with. She is tireless in her pursuit of the right candidate for the job. She cares about her work - she is an ally to her clients and a mentor to her candidates. Elizabeth has a profound understanding of human nature and the forces that drive us all. She seeks to fully understand her clients’ needs first and is not afraid to tell potential candidates when there isn’t a true fit. By far, Elizabeth is the best Denver recruiter!

Elizabeth’s industry knowledge is readily apparent – she knows what is going on, but she never rests on her laurels. She is constantly working to understand where the market is going so she can not only meet her clients’ needs, but anticipate them. She does her homework and her love of her work shines through. One can engage Elizabeth and then turn to other matters, for she will not rest until the mission is fulfilled.

Recently, we were looking to replace a senior member of our in-house legal team in Denver. The candidate needed to have very specific and significant expertise. It was also vital to our search that we identify people who would work extremely well and congenially with our very small team. Using our internal resources, we launched a search that was unsuccessful. We asked Elizabeth to assist us. Within five business days, she presented a slate of highly qualified local Denver candidates. She facilitated the interview process and we were able to identify and hire the right candidate in very short order.

Elizabeth’s approach to recruiting is to build long standing relationships and understand fully what a law firm or company needs, so that she can ensure that the candidates she presents are a good match. Her experience and the integrity she demonstrated throughout the process was invaluable to us.

I had a very good job as an in-house oil and gas litigator. I thought I was perfectly happy – and then Elizabeth called me. An opportunity here in Denver came across her desk that she felt fit me like a glove. Elizabeth spruced up my resume and helped me create a compelling CV supplement. A few weeks later, I had a new job with a real opportunity for upward mobility, better pay, better benefits, and a terrific and collaborative work environment. Elizabeth is knowledgeable and entrenched in the oil and gas industry, because she has been serving it for years. She didn’t just understand my job, she understood their business and what they needed.

I have worked with Elizabeth twice during my legal career and find that her placement approach is different than others providing similar services. Elizabeth takes the time to understand specifically the needs of those involved on both sides of the placement. This type of attention to detail and depth results in a trusted relationship based approach to placement and it sets Elizabeth apart from others. Elizabeth's strong relationships in different industries here in Denver reflect the respect and trust she has earned over her career and permits her to candidly advise and advocate in placements.

I had the pleasure of partnering w/ Elizabeth for nearly 8 years during my tenure at Janus Capital Group in Denver. She was a true business partner by demonstrating excellent communication skills, patiently listening to our detailed specs of role, requirements and scope and then finding the brightest and strongest candidates. Everything she does, she does with polish, professionalism and heart. Her diligence and deliverables equal great value to her clients. Elizabeth truly stands out above the rest.

“I have had the pleasure of knowing Elizabeth for over 15 years. During that time, I have been impressed with her extensive knowledge not only of the Denver legal market, leading law firms, as well as the in-house legal community, but also the mining industry and its key players. Elizabeth’s connections and understanding of the mining and legal industries makes her a unique resource in the recruiting realm. I highly recommend Elizabeth and MPD Partners.”

Elizabeth Dahill was my first manager right out of college almost 10 years ago. She taught me the ins and outs of the contingent staffing world, how to set yourself apart from every other recruiter and most importantly how to always put your candidates' and client' needs ahead of your own agenda. Elizabeth encompasses every aspect of client service and goes above and beyond to understand short and long term needs of her clients and builds relationships that last decades which is a true testimonial to her dedication and loyalty. Today I am a national recruiting manager for Google Inc. and I have Elizabeth to thank for instilling such a great foundation of recruiting practices which has led to my success.

Elizabeth contacted me last year about an opportunity that she seemed so excited about I wanted to hear about the position. I was passively considering looking at a career move but had not seriously considered it until she contacted me. I was impressed at the level of understanding she had of the position, the company, it’s benefits and the overall company culture. She was right, it was a great opportunity. Elizabeth took the time to help me with my resume, prepare me for the numerous interviews and always stayed in contact with me, even scheduling calls at 4am in the morning when I was traveling internationally. It was a real pleasure working with her and she seems very passionate about what she does and who she represents.

- Thomas – Attorney Candidate

I have known Elizabeth Dahill for over twenty years and worked with her in my capacity as associate general counsel and general counsel of several major public companies. Elizabeth has been my “go to” person for hiring of legal professionals here in Denver. She has made it a point to understand what I am looking for when hiring or when seeking help and she has been outstanding at then providing me with candidates that meet my criteria. Elizabeth hasn’t let my usually tight deadlines rattle her but has timely met my needs. She is a very knowledgeable recruiter who takes a personal interest in and works exceptionally hard for her clients. Elizabeth won’t let you down.

- Susan Keesen – Retired General Counsel, Denver CO

Elizabeth Dahill came to me highly recommended by one of the attorneys I used to work for. Prior to meeting Elizabeth I had some disappointing experiences with recruiters who did not appear to have the client's best interests at heart. That is simply not the case with Elizabeth. She takes the time to get to know her clients, regardless of whether she is representing the prospective employer or employee. I have worked with Elizabeth to post and fill legal positions with new candidates as well. Elizabeth has an innate sense of making the perfect match and is intensely fierce in her pursuit. And it doesn’t stop there… Elizabeth has also been instrumental in helping me obtain promotions and salary increases over the years, taking my career to the next level. I have known Elizabeth for 14 years and am grateful for her wealth of knowledge, passion and professionalism. I highly recommend Elizabeth and the Dahill Group for all of your business service needs.

Elizabeth was very helpful in giving me a good sense of the current Denver market. Her experience and resources were invaluable in answering my numerous questions and concerns. Her advice as to which of her clients might be a good match for me was good advice... It was not just pushing firms to me or a scatter shot approach. She listened to me.

- Mark Smith, attorney
