Shilton Sharpe Quarry (‘SSQ’), the leading international legal search consultancy, is pleased to announce that it has further expanded its team in Italy with the hire of former lawyer Tina Lombardi. This brings the number of SSQ legal search consultants in Italy to five; a sixth consultant is scheduled to join SSQ in Italy in January 2016.
Tina practised as a lawyer for ten years, qualifying in both Italy and the UK and worked at leading US law firm, Paul Hastings, specialising in White Collar Crime and Litigation. Following this Tina moved in-house to work for an international luxury brand. Based in Milan, Tina will now be responsible for further developing SSQ’s in-house recruitment business across Italy.
SSQ is the largest dedicated legal recruitment consultancy based on the ground in Italy and further strengthening the team reinforces its commitment to the Italian market and to clients and candidates across the country.
Following Tina’s appointment, SSQ’s Chief Executive, Nick Shilton said:
“The Italian legal recruitment market has really begun to take off again following the global financial crisis. The last year has been particularly strong for our business in the country and being able to double in size across our two offices in Italy during this time has been a real achievement. Tina is an excellent addition to our team and brings with her a unique insight into the in-house legal market in Italy alongside a well-established network.”
