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.
