We reached out to Warren Bongard and Orit Sinai, as we were looking to hire a General Counsel for our company. ZSA came highly recommended and overall, our experience working with both Warren and Orit was excellent – they were clearly very experienced and made the process very predictable and smooth. They approach the project with a great attitude and knowledge of the field. They were intuitive and quickly developed a good feel for our company and what we were looking for. The process moved fast but did not feel rushed. Warren and Orit fully understood the nuances of what we were looking for. Our request was to start with a wide variety of choices and then – after interviews started – narrow down the scope. I thought ZSA did a great job of giving us a broad spectrum of candidates so that we could get a three-dimensional feel for the “right” candidate. Also – everything was extremely “user-friendly.” The interview summaries and CVs were very helpful, as were the efforts to arrange the interviews throughout the organization. We would definitely use ZSA again.

We reached out to Orit Sinai to locate an Associate lawyer and working with her has been really great. She is always accessible and is communicative. I think Orit works really hard and goes above and beyond for her clients. Orit was educated on the current marketplace and was very intuitive when it came to assessing candidates abilities. She was also helpful in analyzing compensation structures. I used another recruiter in the past for a different position; and my experience with ZSA and in particular Orit was completely different. Orit only sent over high quality candidates. She was honest and up front and not pushy like some recruiters are. I didn’t ever feel like she was trying to sell herself or her services to me. I would definitely use ZSA again.

Orit and Warren totally owned my search and presented amazing opportunities in quick succession. (I dare say I almost could not keep up!) The team was very professional and had a calmness that showed a deep familiarity with the hiring process. I have dealt with several other recruiters, including outside Canada. In comparison, ZSA is unrivalled by all standards of measurement I can conjure. The confidence of ZSA’s clients is apparent in the sheer volume and variety of opportunities that were brought to my attention. I would absolutely use ZSA again and I’d also recommend to others – clients and candidates alike.

I worked with Warren Bongard and Orit Sinai, who were both exceptional from start to finish. They were interested in understanding my goals and objectives and responsive in answering my questions along the way. They made the whole process as painless as possible. I particularly appreciated the fact that they spent the time to explain the market to me in advance of my interviews so I knew what points to emphasize with firms during the recruiting process. I would use ZSA again, without a doubt. They would be my first call if I am ever looking to make another move.

Orit’s passion, drive and honesty are unparalleled in this sector. She was committed to ensuring both parties achieved the right result. Working with her throughout the process exceeded expectations, as there was always clear communication and honesty. I’ve worked with other recruiters in the past, but Orit if by far the best. She is a superstar!

I was hired in an In-house Legal position in the Financing and Capital Markets group. I contacted ZSA after seeing an ad for the position in the Ontario Reports. Overall, my experience in working with ZSA was very good! They were very personable and always available. They kept me in the loop in terms of timing and process. They offered guidance on salary expectations and were often able to give me directions in terms of what the interviewers were focusing on and interested in discussing. This was very helpful in preparing for the interviews. Overall it was a good experience and I use the services of ZSA again!
I worked with ZSA on my transition between private practice firms. They were extremely helpful in educating me on the process, preparing me for the various interviews and emphasizing my skills to my new employer. Their attention to my application was thorough and fulsome and it was a pleasure working with ZSA in my last move. I would recommend ZSA for anyone keen on learning about or seeking out other employment opportunities in the market.
ZSA is our preferred choice of legal recruiting partner. I have always found them enormously responsive, thorough and pragmatic. ZSA recruiters have a keen understanding of our business and are very diligent in their efforts to understand our hiring needs. This shows in the quality and suitability of the candidates that they present to us for consideration.
