About Susan Tien Search
We place attorneys at employers ranging from unicorns to Fortune 10.
I have known Susan since she placed me in-house at Gilead. She was remarkably helpful throughout that process, largely because she knows the legal recruiting market intimately from the inside: a U-Penn law grad, she was an attorney with Wilson Sonsini, as well as in-house counsel at some of the leading Bay-area tech companies. From my perspective as a job seeker moving from law firm to in-house, she understood where I was coming from, what my concerns were, and how to coach me through the process to success. Over the years, Susan has become a friend and trusted advisor. Since launching my own legal practice, I have frequently turned to Susan for counsel, not only about recruiting issues, but also about the market and realistic goals I should set for my requirements. Throughout, she has always acted with integrity and grace and I am thrilled to see her launch this venture!

Susan has helped to place me at two of my positions. She has always been very thoughtful in presenting opportunities that are a good fit for my skill set and interests. Throughout the candidacy process, she remains supportive, diligently providing information and tips to prepare for interviews, and advising on negotiations to cut cycles and make sure both parties are properly aligned. Finally, Susan is just a nice person to work with--not pushy and very calm and grounded, with great depth of knowledge of the tech/legal industry. I highly recommend her!
