How it all started…

After briefly practising in Vancouver, Christopher Sweeney moved to London, England to pursue his Graduate Business Degree at the London School of Economics (LSE) and a Masters in British Imperial History at London University.  Christopher’s interest in recruitment began when he joined QD (Quarry Dougall), then the pre-eminent global legal recruitment firm based in London. It was there that he discovered his skills and abilities in legal recruitment and slowly began to build a name for himself. Christopher subsequently returned to Canada and founded Zarak Sweeney and Associates, the Canadian sister company to the world-leading British firm. Christopher crossed paths with Warren Bongard, who also ceased practicing law after starting his own legal recruitment firm. Just weeks after Christopher opened the doors, Warren’s company was brought under the ZSA banner.

ZSA operates four recruitment divisions, each of which specializes in a different professional discipline. Our well-known brands include:

  1. ZSA Legal:  recruitment services dedicated to legal professionals
  2. ZSA Support:  recruitment services dedicated to legal support professionals
  3. ZSA International:  recruitment services dedicated to international legal professionals
  4. LexLocom:  recruitment services dedicated to temporary legal professionals on a project or interim basis

ZSA professionals in each division continue to balance their business and community involvement in the legal world. For more information, please refer to the list of causes & organizations that ZSA supports.
