Meet Patty Morrissy, a partner-level legal recruiter, with a significant network and credibility in the most elite segment of the New York City market and more broadly along the East Coast.

Prior to starting her own legal recruiting firm, Patty was Managing Director and Senior Legal Recruiter for partner searches with Macrae, Inc.’s New York City office, which she helped establish.

Earlier, she worked at two of the highest ranked law firms in the country, serving as Chief Recruiting Officer at both Sullivan & Cromwell and Paul Weiss, and as Chief Administrator for the legal and compliance department of a major investment bank.
