The Challenge

Frazier and Deeter LLP. is a US based CPA firm specialising in the mid-market sector. Governed by entrepreneurial and meritocratic principles, Frazier and Deeter owe their success to outside-the-box innovative strategies to client acquisition and focus on quality service. The challenges they have faced with talent acquisition include:


1. Finding a talent acquisition partner with specialist knowledge who could source senior candidates with a combination of the right industry background and tenacity for innovation.


2. Sourcing top candidates across multiple branches in the US within a short period of time.


After initial conversations, Frazier and Deeter were confident that the industry-specific knowledge and experience of Leonid’s Innovation Incentives division was an ideal match as a talent acquisition partner.


Leonid have played a pivotal role in the growth of the R&D tax credit function.

In the last 6 months we have been retained for 2 key hires: 1 x R&D Tax Principal + 1 x R&D Tax Technical Consultant.

Magic Month

Offers a predefined delivery timeline whereby Leonid will fulfil our commitment within 4 weeks of instruction. Leonid’s ability to understand the culture of the firm and its offering enabled us to headhunt the top talent available on the US market from competitors.


Enabled us to deliver video shortlist submissions to Frazier and Deeter on day 15 of the Magic Month. Frazier and Deeter received a shortlist of 4-6 candidates within which a 5 minute snippet interview of each candidate was available, alongside the resume, for the hiring manager to review.
