Updated: Jun 23, 2023

May 12, 2023 – Legal recruiters Dan Hatch, Jennifer Henderson, and Michelle Fivel have launched Hatch Henderson Fivel (HHF), a legal search firm with a presence in both California and New York. The firm is focused on helping lawyers find their career paths while also helping law firms find the best legal talent for their unique needs.

With over 60 combined years of experience, HHF’s partners have backgrounds in making long-term placements for top regional, national, and international law firms. All three of the firm’s partners practiced law at major law firms prior to becoming recruiters, and previously worked together at the global legal recruiting firm of Major Lindsey & Africa (MLA). Mr. Hatch most recently was a founding partner at Hatch Gamble Brown LLC, while Ms. Henderson and Ms. Fivel were most recently partners at MLA.

“We are thrilled to officially launch Hatch Henderson Fivel and offer the market a vastly superior legal search firm,” said Mr. Hatch. “Hatch Henderson Fivel is based on building trusted relationships of value with partners, up and coming lawyers, and major law firms seriously interested in strategic growth.” Mr. Hatch has over 20 years of experience as a recruiter and has facilitated myriad significant lateral partner transactions, including numerous AmLaw 50 office openings in major markets. His signature placements are often listed on The American Lawyer’s annual short list of the top lateral partner moves worldwide.

Ms. Henderson and Ms. Fivel each bring over 15 years of legal recruiting experience to the new firm. They both specialize in assisting associates and partners in making pivotal career moves and also act as career strategists to lawyers in all stages of their careers. They are also advisors to their client law firms using their ability to provide guidance on lateral market trends and the recruitment process.

“Hatch Henderson Fivel is a different kind of recruiting firm,” said Ms. Henderson. “Our business model is based on relationships. We don’t merely make placements; we partner with law firms to ensure they have the talent they need to further their success and strategic growth.”

“The legal market locally, nationally, and internationally is constantly evolving, making each firm’s needs rather complex,” said Ms. Fivel. “We invest significant time in understanding each law firm’s individual needs, and then work tirelessly to find the right talent. HHF is committed to helping lawyers and law firms find the best professional fit.”
