Alexis Lamb (JD UTexas ’04), Partner, is uniquely positioned to advise candidates on the nuances between a Hong Kong and US-based BigLaw practice, as she is one of the only legal recruiters in the industry who has experienced both US BigLaw and Asia BigLaw from an associate’s perspective. She started her career as an M&A associate in the NYC office of O’Melveny & Myers, then worked in Hong Kong for 5 years as a US Capital Markets associate in Linklaters’ Hong Kong office – placed by Evan Jowers himself – and as an Asia-focused legal recruiter on Evan’s team.
Along with recruiting, Alexis plays a vital role in developing and implementing the Company’s various marketing-related initiatives, as well as managing our internal operational systems. Prior to joining Jowers Vargas, Alexis served as Director of Talent at Bliss Lawyers, a US-based alternative legal model, and as a senior recruiter for two New York-based recruiting agencies.
Throughout her career, Alexis has placed and obtained offers for attorneys at BigLaw and high-level in-house roles in a variety of domestic and international markets, including but not limited to Hong Kong, Beijing, Shanghai, Singapore, Tokyo, Seoul, London, New York, New Jersey, northern and southern California, and even Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia!
Alexis lives in Wynwood, Miami but spends much of her year (COVID restrictions permitting) working out of our New York and Hong Kong offices. When she isn’t assisting candidates on their next international career move, you can find her darting along Miami’s various causeways and parks in her pursuit of her lifelong goal of a sub-3 hour marathon, or strolling through her neighborhood appreciating the world-class street art and lack of snow.
