Passion, persistence, and professionalism precisely describe Robin Wexler. A former clerk for the U.S. Tax Court, a practicing attorney with 20 years of experience working in high-profile firms and a senior counsel for a leading financial services company, Robin immerses herself in all things legal. It’s her calling.
She’s a voracious legal reader. She’s an accomplished legal writer who served as editor of the Syracuse Law Review and has published articles for Bloomberg and other national publications. Robin has the ability to integrate objective and subjective information from wide-ranging sources to connect the dots and understand relationships.
This distinctive set of abilities allow Robin to take a highly personalized approach to legal recruiting.
She is a tireless connector, creating and maintaining relationships with managing partners, group leaders, and regulatory experts. With some, she’ll work on specific recruiting assignments. Many more become members of her impressive legal network, providing feedback, advice, and important developments throughout the legal industry.
Although based in the Washington, DC metropolitan area, Robin focuses nationally on partner and group recruiting and has facilitated numerous highly recognized partner and group placements with multiple leading global and national law firms. Her experience, her network, and her systematic research make Robin extremely knowledgeable about the legal landscape. As National Partner Practice Group Leader for Lucas Group’s Legal Division, Robin is not only a tremendous resource for her colleagues within Lucas Group, but also her longstanding clients and candidates. The depth of counsel that she delivers to clients and candidates comes not from a recruiting template, but rather from an insistence on hand-crafted excellence. No two clients or candidates are identical so Robin listens intelligently to create this personalization. She asks questions, pays careful attention to what’s said and not said, and becomes deeply connected to the objectives. That combination of personal identification, professional dedication, and unquestioned integrity, creates meaningful, long-lasting relationships.
It also generates success. Robin has consistently been recognized by Lucas Group as one of the top performers within the Company, earning a variety of prestigious awards throughout her career.
Robin brings a practicing veteran’s perspective to her recruiting opportunities. It’s a perspective that helps her relate to clients’ needs, candidates’ aspirations, and the challenges of expertly pairing the two sometimes-competing perspectives. She finds that challenge motivating. Like crafting a compelling brief, her goal is to create a long-term connection between a respected firm and a potential partner or group leader. Yet the relationships remain long after a successful hire. Those who were once candidates often become future clients and Robin’s current clients continue to engage her both for active recruiting and ongoing consultation.
While the law consumes much of her time, Robin invests heavily in her two sons as well.
For those who seek the same quality and passion in a legal recruiter, Robin Wexler is an excellent choice.
