What clients and lawyers say about us

“Engaging Annie Tang from Star Anise Legal to provide search services in the General Counsel and Senior Legal Counsel posts, we were impressed by Annie’s extensive professional network in drawing up a shortlist from which we could identify suitable candidates for the posts....”

Patricia So, Insurance Authority

Where Star Anise really excel is that they not only carefully and diligently reviewed my experience but also took time to understand my career aspirations – some recruiters manage the former, surprisingly few manage the latter.  Star Anise exhibited a rare combination of excellence in recruitment – identifying a talented and qualified candidate for their “client” position – and proactively and selflessly creating true value beyond the firm’s commercial interest.  Now that is rare indeed. 

Ian Robertson, Senior Director, Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC)

Star Anise saw my abilities and matched me with a job that I could be challenged in, both professionally and personally.

Karen Cheung, Head of Business Development, Vistra
