"I found Clement to be one of the best legal recruiters I had an opportunity to work with. He comes across as a thorough professional who creates a win-win situation for both the candidate and the organisation he is recruiting for. Clement has excellent domain knowledge of the legal industry. Being trained in law, he understands this domain inside out and is a natural. This expertise, coupled with an ability to find the best possible talent is what, I believe, helps him match the “talent” and the “acquisition” so effectively. Clement is a very easy person to work with, is absolutely transparent in his dealings and has the ability to get the best of a candidate. This, in effect, allows the candidate to perform to his/her best of ability and strength. It was a real pleasure to work with Clement. I wish him the very best!”

 Pranav Rai, Senior Contract Specialist, ABB Pte Ltd


“Working with Clement was like a ray of sunshine when I had to take a dark dive into the jargon-laden industry for a new search. Throughout the whole process, Clement was patient in helping me to understand the lingo and how best to navigate the search. Without fail, he would closely follow up with each candidate after each interview and provide timely feedback demonstrating his dependability. In a nutshell, Clement is one of the rare breeds of consultants that I can truly call a partner in hiring. it is truly a fortune for my fellow talent professionals to work with such a reliable partner; Clement has my firm recommendation.”

Darrell Wong, Talent Attraction Lead, YCH Group


“Extremely professional and able to understand and value add to the talent acquisition process by helping to distil key attributes that employers are looking for and matching the candidate profiles. His expertise and feedback were also very much appreciated as I have not really hired a legal professional before. All-round great guy to work with!”
