Stofsky & Schiller LLC
Lianne Stofsky has been placing attorneys in all practice areas and at all levels throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia for over 20 years. Her understanding of the many nuances of the legal field, coupled with her ability to successfully complete searches has earned Lianne the respect of her clients. Lianne’s reputation has also been built on her integrity, sense of humor, patience and engaging personality.
In addition to thorough due diligence with clients, Lianne spends a lot of time with candidates. She is an expert in resume and interview preparation, which enables her candidates to be ahead of the game by leveraging their knowledge of the position and strength of their presentation.
Lianne’s ability to train general counsel, partners and candidates in all aspects of the search process evolved out of the skills and sensibilities she developed earlier in her career as an educational administrator and teacher. Lianne earned an M.A. and B.A. from NYU and a second M.A. from Manhattan College. She is very involved in the performing arts and travels extensively. She has one son, an attorney who has worked for a prestigious New York law firm and is currently launching a legal media and consulting firm servicing public interest attorneys.
A legal recruiter since 1986, Debbie is considered one of the most accomplished legal search consultants in New York City. Specializing in placing real estate attorneys, Debbie has had the opportunity to successfully place over 550 real estate attorneys into top law firms, developers, REITs, and investment banks.
For more than 34 years, Debbie has spent countless hours consulting and meeting with her clients in order to better understand their business, firm culture and history. This knowledge has proved invaluable in helping her target only the most appropriate candidates when she is given a job listing. Debbie is also known as an effective advocate for her candidates. With her finger on the pulse of her clients and the market, she is able to guide her candidates through the process while providing them with information about a prospective position that only an “insider” would know.
Since many of Debbie’s “placements” have become a partner at their respective law firms or have “moved up in the ranks” in their various in-house positions, she is most gratified that many of them turn to her first when a hiring need arises. Because she has earned their trust and confidence, many of them also give her exclusive job listings.
Debbie prides herself on her stellar reputation of unparalleled integrity which also enables her to have an extensive referral network. When Debbie is not busy placing attorneys, she enjoys spending time with her family and being active in her community in New Jersey, where she lives.
