Current opportunities

We currently are seeking two litigation associates for our Toronto office.

Aside from being bright and personable, which we all strive to be, successful candidates will take on responsibility for managing their own files as well as provide support to other lawyers, have initiative and motivation, but be willing to learn, and have strong written and oral skills. Good time and practice management skills are an absolute must. 

One position requires candidates to have 2 to 4 years of general civil and commercial litigation experience, and will provide the successful candidate with a general litigation practice consisting of a blend of professional liability work, municipal defence, and commercial litigation. The successful candidate will primarily have independent carriage of files requiring regular attendance at examinations, mediations, motions etc, with oversight as needed, but will also be working with other lawyers in a team on larger, more complex files.

The other litigation position requires 3 to 5 years of construction and/or commercial litigation experience with a strong interest in construction law. The majority of this practice will include professional liability work, but there will be crossover into general commercial litigation. This position will provide the successful candidate the opportunity to primarily work on larger complex litigation files in a team environment as well as take on some smaller matters independently.

Please note that we are a firm which encourages individuals to grow professionally and develop their practices in accordance with their interests, therefore the exact parameters of both positions are flexible and will vary depending on the strengths and interests of each of the successful candidates.

Please submit your cover letter and resume to Gaynor Roger.
