Ilene Whitman


Ilene Whitman is a former Principal with The Whitman Group, a leading attorney recruiting firm with offices in New York, California and Texas. Ilene worked in the New York office and had been a legal recruiter since 1989. She placed associates, partners and senior in-house counsel, including General Counsel, into law firms and corporations based in the United States, Europe & Asia. Ilene opened her own recruiting firm, The Whitman Group, in 2002. 

She was proud of her reputation as one of the most effective recruiters in the New York area. She had been told by several firms that the percentage of her candidates hired is significantly greater when compared to any other search firm they use---she did not waste the time of clients or candidates. 

Many of her candidates, whether placed or not, were very appreciative of her efforts and knowledge of the industry and they called on The Whitman Group first (and often exclusively) to fill their legal staffing needs when they moved into hiring positions. The fact that most of her candidates and clients came to her through referrals is the best testament to Ilene’s reputation. 

Experience. Integrity. Knowledge. Results. The Whitman Group.
