Janet Leibovitz

Research Associate

If you love life, life will love you back.

— Arthur Rubinstein

The Doctor

Truth-be-told, Janet is a lawyer by degree and by training. However, the precision with which she approaches her work has earned her a new nickname around our offices. There are many positives to Janet’s ethos that “the small stuff matters.” Beyond her ability to apply extreme attention to the fine print, Janet is insanely good at reading people’s emotions and intentions. She applies this innate talent to her assessment of how prospective candidates will fit within our clients’ cultures. And, on any given day, she may recall a personal detail that makes someone feel valued.

Janet brings 13 years of legal experience to her role as research associate. Many of the qualities Janet honed during her law career translate to her current role. She brings the ability to dig deeply into her assignments, and is known for continually asking questions to help our team identify improvements to our research strategies.

As research associate, Janet actively supports each stage of Acertitude search engagements to include crafting position specifications, formulating source and target lists and identifying highly qualified prospects.

Previously, Janet was research consultant at Technology Executive Group (TEG), where she entered the world of retained executive search after having scaled back her career to raise her family. Prior to that, Janet balanced her motherhood role while serving as office manager for her husband’s firm, the Law Office of Andrew Leibovitz. Before that, she served as an attorney at the Law Offices of Debra Hart and Margolis Edelstein. She began her career as a judicial law clerk in the New Jersey Superior Court.

Janet is married, and the proud mother of two girls. When she isn’t on a field watching them play sports, she says her favorite way to spend a weekend is with family and friends, sometimes with a nice bottle of wine.
