Kicking off 2022 with 3 new hires

After a strong year of growth and a New York office launch, Sonder Consultants is delighted to welcome three new consultants to the global sonder team. 

After being previously employed by another global recruitment agency in the city, Wesley Bourland joins our newly established New York office. Wes brings over eight years of experience placing attorneys at all levels across the United States, mainly focusing on structured finance and investment funds attorneys. Wes is a proud Texan, and outside of being an excellent legal recruiter, he is a very talented musician.  

“I am ready to embark on a new adventure with a recruitment firm that has taken the industry by storm in the last couple of years. I am truly excited about the growth of the New York office and to be a part of Sonders success here.” – Wesley Bourland

Sonder consultants new starts

Stefano J. Barbagallo also joins our New York office as a Senior Consultant. Before joining Sonder Consultants, Stefano worked as an investment funds attorney at Kirkland & Ellis in New York and Minter Ellison in Australia. As a result, Stefano brings invaluable experience to the Sonder group, and we are all incredibly excited to work with him. 

Stephano will be on hand to provide helpful insights to candidates into his experiences working within two of the world’s most prominent law firms and offer advice on what life is like moving to New York as a lawyer. Stefano brings an infectious level of enthusiasm to everything he does, and we look forward to watching him move through the ranks at Sonder for many years to come.

After meeting Kevin and the team, it became apparent that Sonder’s culture and way of working make them unique to other recruitment firms. The team work hard to tailor their services to individual clients and candidates – with their goals and requirements always at the centre of conversations. I admire that and think I can bring a new and insightful element to the team with my experience. 

Alex Lynch joins our London office in Monument as an Associate Consultant. Prior to joining the team in January, Alex completed his Bachelors of Law degree at the University of Kent and was most recently employed by another international recruitment company in the city. Alex joins our UK private practice division and has already hit the ground running. Unfortunately for him, the same can’t be said for his beloved Crystal Palace. 

“I am excited to be part of a growing agency that really has the candidate at the heart of everything that they do. The market is extremely busy, and so far, no two days have been the same in the office. It’s exciting, and I appreciate the chance to forward my career at Sonder.” – Alex Lynch
