NEW YORKLippman Jungers LLC, a global legal recruiting firm, announces the additions of Senior Managing Director Vijay Luthra and Senior Recruiter Mary Copeland to its New York office. Luthra and Copeland will focus on placing practice groups and individual partners at top-tier law firms nationally and internationally.

“We are always looking for ways to cultivate the best recruiter talent in the market,” said Sabina Lippman, co-founder of Lippman Jungers. “Our New York office is in growth mode to meet the area’s demands and we believe that Vijay and Mary will strongly bolster our presence.”

As Head of the New York office and with more than a decade of experience in legal recruiting, Luthra places large groups, practice teams and individuals at a number of top New York law firms and other leading firms across the United States and internationally, including London, São Paulo and Hong Kong. Prior to joining Lippman Jungers, Luthra served as a Senior Recruiter at Audrey Golden Associates.

Copeland’s emphasis is connecting individuals to firms looking for long-term relationships. Having a strong pulse on the latest legal trends, Copeland is familiar with the Big Law scene and strives to identify the best opportunities for candidates. Prior to joining Lippman Jungers, Copeland worked in the New York City market recruiting corporate finance professionals.

“Vijay brings clients a wealth of knowledge and experience in complicated multi-partner deals. There are very few legal recruiters that have executed multiple $1 million fee deals in a single year, and Vijay has done it,” said co-founder Mark Jungers. “Mary comes to the firm with a fearless attitude and relentless work ethic, which benefits both our firm and our clients. Mary has fostered relationships with several law firms, with particular traction on behalf of one of our largest clients.”
