A Life After
What’s in a name??
When I started Life After Law in 2000, the name said it all. We placed lawyers in roles outside traditional law firm practice. And today we still do – but we also do a lot more.
After so many years of speaking and working with a wide range of lawyers, companies, and law firms, and interviewing thousands of candidates, we have learned a lot about the profession. What we came to realize over time, was that many candidates were not necessarily looking to move outside of practice, but rather to a different firm, that was a better fit . This was a very important realization and we quickly adapted by broadening our offerings. There began our Life after Law Evolution.
Our mission has always been to help companies and law firms find exceptional talent, while at the same time, offering lawyers opportunities where they can achieve their career ambitions and dreams. Our evolution has been in the expansion of the variety of opportunities:
> Non-traditional / Executive / Quasi-Legal
> In-house Counsel
> Private Practice
Our roots, as the first Canadian Legal Recruiter to focus on the non-traditional realm provided us with a unique legal recruitment lens. We look at our candidates differently. Our experience has trained us to evaluate all our candidates more holistically than typical legal recruiters,and has given us the ability to assess corporate and cultural fit in a way not generally expected or thought possible. This continues to benefit our clients and candidates in every search mandate.
I was one of those lawyers looking to do something “more” with my law degree. The evolution of Life After Law has also been my own personal career evolution, in ways I never expected.
I have been often asked, “ Is there a Life After Law”?
There absolutely is! I have been living it for 20+ years… and counting!!!
