Life After Law achieves client satisfaction on every assignment by providing the very best professional talent available anywhere. Life After Law operates with a strong commitment to quality, integrity, professionalism and customer service excellence.

With a head office in Toronto, consultants and offices in Vancouver and Montreal, and a roster of candidates and clients all across Canada and the U.S., Life After Law can serve the national and international recruitment needs of your organization by allowing you to benefit from the unique skills and experience found in experienced lawyers, progressing to their ultimate career goal.

Created by, and staffed by former lawyers, Life After Law was first developed in recognition of an untapped niche. By addressing the overwhelming demand of the legal community for assistance in the pursuit of careers outside traditional law firm practice, and marrying it with the ever growing need of industry to unearth new sources of exceptional talent, Life After Law has created new synergies between the business world and the legal community by providing a valuable resource…a well of untapped talent.

At our inception, almost 20 years ago, there was a furious rush to move outside of private practice. We became experts in Quasi-Legal and alternative careers. What we also came to realize over time was that many candidates were not necessarily looking to make a move outside of practice, but rather to a different firm, that was a better fit. We have been working with top tier and boutique firms across the country ever since, helping to provide the best talent available.
