What our clients think

The research at Carmichael Fisher is of a very high quality. The team not only identified the right kind of target companies but were also very responsive to our suggestions. The language challenges of our pan-European search presented no problems for them, and the fact that they had actually met with the candidates they put forward – rather than just had a telephone conversation – really paid off.
