“We have used Dominique Graham for a number of years in relation to Due Diligence and have always been extremely happy with the results. We have used her for London as well as some of our overseas offices. Her seniority in the field is clearly an advantage and we trust her 100%.”
Head of HR of a leading International firm
“We use Dominique to help us in deciding which of the potential partner hires we want to take forward. I’ve always found the exercise is well worth it, particularly as it flushes out stuff which would not normally surface until after the hire. Her turnaround is always astonishingly fast. How she gets her information is always a mystery to me!”
Senior Partner of a leading City firm
“We use Dominique for all our lateral hires and have come to rely on her service. She is entirely reliable and uses her extensive network of contacts and market intelligence to good effect. Her Due Diligence service is, in my opinion, one no firm should do without.”
Global Recruitment Partner of a leading International firm
“If you need a quick check on someone, anyone, Dominique tends to deliver. She seems to know everyone, and if she doesn’t, she knows someone who does. People seem to confide in her, and she is the soul of discretion. I always use her just to be on the
safe side, and even if I think I know the partner I want to recruit.”
Head of Finance of a leading City firm
“Thank you so much for the quick turnaround of the report, it is very much appreciated and the lead Partner found the comments very enlightening. He also appreciated the level of detail you managed to get into. So thanks again for your speed and hard work.”
