Legal Officers

Recruiting General Counsels and other senior level legal professionals is a hallmark of the firm.

Our extensive track record in the legal function affords us access to the top legal professionals in the United States, both in house and in private practice.

Clients for whom General Counsel searches were handled include:
Applied Materials International Paper
Pfizer Lenovo Group
IBM Bechtel
Bristol-Myers Squibb Parsons Brinkenhorff
Zimmer Holdings PPG Industries

Partners David Peasback and Greg Gabel handle senior level legal assignments as a team.

It is noteworthy that CEO David Peasback (formerly CEO Heidrick & Struggles), practiced law with Covington & Burling, the preeminent law firm in Washington, DC.

The selection of Canny, Bowen is often a result of the dissatisfaction our clientèle have experienced with the prior performance of large global executive search firms due to their delegation of assignments to junior Associates and conflicts of interest which prevent a thorough search.

Our areas of expertise include:
General Counsel Tax
Intellectual Property/Trademarks Corporate Securities
Compliance M&A
Employment/Labor Regulatory Affairs
Litigation Corporate Secretary

In addition to the Chief Legal Officer searches highlighted above, two searches for General Electric are particularly noteworthy: Corporate Head of Litigation and Legal Policy for all of GE, and Head of Litigation for GE Capital.

We are particularly proud that two of our General Counsel placements in recent years were promoted to CEO of their respective Fortune 500 companies.
