Mr. Sontag’s clients benefit from the geographic scope of his experience, which includes recruiting lawyers from all the major cities in the United States, Latin America, and the PRC, and the Middle East, and the United Kingdom. His cosmopolitan exposure and interests are aided by his time spent living abroad in Israel, which really broadened his scope of both culture and business, and has interested him in the niche area of attorneys with international backgrounds or interests based in the US and abroad. His clients are further aided by his deep familiarity with the market for lawyers in many different industries, including financial services, science and technology, infrastructure and projects, oil and gas, healthcare, defense and national security, aviation, insurance, and real estate. Mr. Sontag strives to understand the nuances that make each candidate unique and tailors his efforts accordingly. Mr. Sontag makes an effort to make sure each candidate feels that they are taken care of by being available and responsive by providing constant updates whether the news is good or bad, as well as treating each search with the delicacy and discretion that is necessary. In his spare time, Mr. Sontag enjoys watching and playing sports, and playing guitar.
