Approach

Experts

The ALT team members are veterans in the industry. Our extensive experience spans more than 50 combined years. We recruit in all areas of law for a diverse client base in all industries. As relationship experts, we gain the trust and confidence of a comprehensive network of legal talent across Canada.

Collaborative

From the start, our legal recruiters invest time to fully understand your unique needs. Through open consultation and collaboration, we ask the tough questions to ensure the right fit. Communication and responsiveness set us apart.

Team

We truly work as a team with a common goal – to find our clients the best talent. The integrity of our recommendation process is critical to a successful hire. Recommendations are made following objective evaluation and consensus to provide clear choices for our clients.

Selective

We are not high volume recruiters. We are selective in the campaigns we work on and the candidates we represent. Our team proactively manages the recruitment process setting clear timelines while scrutinizing the candidates to ensure they meet and exceed your expectations.

Confidentiality

As lawyers and legal recruiters, we know the importance of confidentiality and express consent. Everything we do hinges on our trustworthy reputation and we work hard to maintain it. Please review our Privacy Policy to learn more.
