Managing Partner Max Crane is quoted in this article about lateral hiring at law firms during the pandemic. 

As seen in this article, "Sills Cummis & Gross, which weeks ago added a new employment law practice chair in Patricia Prezioso, has hired steadily throughout the pandemic, according to managing partner R. Max Crane.

“'We’ve been very active,' Crane said in an interview earlier this year. 'We haven’t let the pandemic slow us down on hiring.'

"He said the firm wanted to 'take advantage of a confusing time' by pushing to hire when other firms might be hesitant to do so—targeting associates in practices of need, and partners with books of business. 'It was easy to say, do nothing and see what happens,' but Sills, he said, didn’t do that."
