Greg has been part of the Chicago legal community for over 15 years and has dedicated his career to providing lawyers looking to take their next step the kind of support he wished he’d had as a young attorney. He practiced as a transactional associate at Sidley Austin in Chicago and a corporate associate at Dentons Bingham Greenebaum in Louisville. He then made his own career transition to follow his passion for coaching and mentoring others and served as an Associate Director of Career Services at Loyola University Chicago School of Law, where he counseled students and alumni and taught a course in commercial transactions as an Adjunct Professor. Greg moved from academia to recruiting, spending several years as a top Managing Director with McCormack Schreiber, then as a career coach with Kirkland & Ellis’s award-winning CareerLink program, before rejoining the McCormack Schreiber team. Greg has an eye for talent and an innate sense for cultural fit and draws from his varied professional experiences to offer attorneys individualized support at each stage of their professional careers to help them define and attain their goals. Greg earned his B.A. and J.D. from the Washington University in St. Louis and his LL.M. in Taxation from the NYU School of Law.
Plenty of recruiters wanted to help me at a crossroads in my career. Greg Veza distinguished himself with a personal investment towards finding exactly what I was looking for. He went above and beyond through responsiveness, commitment, and preparation. Greg’s patience allowed me to find an environment that was as much a matter of fit as one of opportunity. He made my job search a dialogue and always kept my priorities at the forefront. I would recommend Greg and McCormack Schreiber without reservation.

My experience with McCormack Schreiber proved nothing less than stellar. As a young attorney who felt both unhappy with my current employment and unsuccessful in my efforts seeking new opportunities, I contacted McCormack Schreiber for assistance. Greg Veza shaped my approach to potential opportunities and gave me confidence that I could not only find a new position, but also pivot my practice area. Greg not only custom tailored my resume and effectively prepared me for my interviews, but he also served as an advocate and liaison between me and my new firm until throughout the process. I continue to recommend McCormack Schreiber to my friends who desire change, and strongly believe in its ability to help others accomplish their goals.

I worked with Greg Veza of McCormack Schreiber when I was trying to return to Chicago from a smaller Midwest market. Greg connected me with a number of great opportunities, and I landed a job within my choice practice group at an Am Law 100 firm. I really could not be happier with the way things worked out. The entire time we worked together, Greg was honest, candid, and encouraging. He helped me with my resume and provided crucial feedback and guidance with respect to interview preparation. I love my job and I am certain I would not have it without Greg’s help.
