About Us

We’re not headhunters. We’re your personal career concierge. And we – like a consulting firm – work as a team on your behalf.

Jowers / Vargas is an Asia-focused BigLaw consulting and recruiting firm. For the past 12 years Evan Jowers and Alejandro Vargas have been building close relationships with most key hiring partners in US and UK law firms in the Asia markets. Evan has made over 400 US associate, counsel, and partner placements in Asia. He has placed and long-term advised many of these key hiring partners in their own careers, as well as helped build their teams. Alejandro has worked with many of them on China and Pan Asia deals over the years. He spent eight years as an associate at Skadden Arps and Davis Polk in Hong Kong, Beijing, and Singapore, on both China and Pan Asia practice teams, before moving into recruiting four years ago.

Our headquarters are in Hong Kong and we also have offices in Tokyo, Singapore, Boston, London, Moscow, Los Angeles and New York. Our key focus in Asia is placements of US attorneys, but we also have placed numerous Hong Kong, Aussie, Singapore, and UK-qualified attorneys. Further, we have made numerous in-house placements, with a particular focus in tech companies, funds, and family offices.

In the Fall of 2018, we launched our US Operations within the major U.S. markets, focusing on attorney placements into the M&A, technology, emerging companies, venture capital, and entertainment / media sectors. However, we are full-service and have extensive experience in attorney placements across various corporate, finance, and litigation practice areas.
