Meet the members of our team.

Mitch Satalof

Mitch Satalof

If nothing else, Mitch Satalof, our CEO, must have a keen sense of timing. After over 20 years in the music industry, Mitch transitioned to recruiting when he sensed the end of the music industry due to the emergence of MP3. After a short time recruiting in Telecom, he became concerned with that industry’s stability and decided to build his own agency recruiting and placing attorneys.

After a number of years recruiting in all practice areas, Mitch’s background in negotiating agreements in the music business was likely the fulcrum for his attraction to the world of Intellectual Property, which is where he spends the majority of his time. While JPI places people in all practice areas, much of Mitch's time is invested in all aspects of IP - placing groups, partners and counsel as well as associates and patent agents.

When he is not recruiting, Mitch spends much of his time on family and playing and organizing tennis matches.  He was recently elected as Membership Chair at Germantown Cricket Club in Philadelphia where he serves on the Board of Governors and attempts to play tennis three times per week year round.

Mitch also serves on the Board of NALSC (National Association of Legal Search Consultants) and takes a very active role as Co-Chair of Ace for a Cure, a fundraising event that occurs in June each year benefiting the JDRF that is dedicated to turning Type one Diabetes into Type none.

For a more in depth look at Mitch, the following interview ran on Law Crossing in 2013 or you can garner more bio info in the Member Spotlight feature in the NALSC Fall 2015 Newsletter.
