Thanks to Raj and Contego for the great work they did for us in managing to secure an executive of Colin Greene's quality to be our next CEO. Raj has boundless energy and clearly has relationships and reach into parts of the ecosystem we had found ourselves unable to access hitherto. This appointment is critical for us as we seek to build on the significant opportunity created. Raj's role in assisting us to secure our next leader has been pivotal for the the development of the Company. Well done Contego and thank you. I am happy to commend their services.

Phil King. Chairman, MYPINPAD Ltd; Co-Founder and Partner at Asia Principal Capital

Raj is an energetic and insightful recruiter. He instinctively knows what works and finds not only good quality lawyers but those who are the right fit - overall - for the client. It is clear that he knows the candidates well before he refers them. This makes the process, and especially the interviewing phase, much easier. Equally, Raj expends much energy in getting to know his clients and their needs which enables a successful outcome for everyone involved.

Sophia Malik. Group General Counsel & Chief People Officer at ADM Group

Raj is the quintessential expert in head-hunting and networking. He has an understanding of the legal market that is just incredible and a passion and drive for his job that makes him stand out in the market. He also has fine business acumen and a great perseverance which have always characterised his practice throughout the years. So, if you are looking for your ideal job (or for your ideal candidate) and you have been unsuccessful so far, Raj will most likely make your dream come true!

Tommaso Panico. Legal Director, COLT

This is a statement of fact, rather than a recommendation. I sought Raj as he was recommended to me when I was looking for a new and challenging opportunity. From the outset, I immediately felt comfortable, he is personable, strong in his opinion, knowledgable beyond words in his field and always willing to listen. His no nonsense, direct approach is refreshing and leaves you with a hopeful feeling. The bottom line: Raj delivers. He know more than you do what it is that you want and need and translates it into job prospects and opportunity. Raj found me a fantastic job, and I am confident that my career and my future is in the best of hands. Raj: thank you.

Aiman Buzeyan. Senior Contract Commercial Manager at Huawei Technologies

Arun recently placed me in a great role. He was very professional, efficient and supportive throughout the recruitment process. Both Arun and Contego Search provide a very personal service and I would highly recommend both.
