Our client is one of the largest and most respected full service regional law firms in Ontario. Its clients are sophisticated individuals, businesses, institutions and governmental bodies. Its reach extends beyond Canada as it is regularly called upon to assist with the Canadian interests of clients in foreign jurisdictions. The firm was recently short-listed by Canadian Law Magazine as one of the top ten full service regional law firms in Ontario.
This firm of 35+ lawyers continues to grow its team as its client base expands. The close-knit Corporate Group plays an important role in the firm and provides a broad range of services, including mergers and acquisitions, reorganizations and general day-to-day corporate / commercial advice. The group is now looking to add a Senior Corporate / Commercial Lawyer to its team. Although this person would not need to bring a book of business, they should have a history of successfully servicing and developing clients.
The ideal candidate will have a minimum of 7 years of experience in a general corporate practice including M&A, reorganizations and general corporate and commercial matters, gained from a well-respected firm. Excellent drafting and interpersonal skills are essential, as is the ability to work independently, while being a ‘team player’. Leadership skills will also be of interest as will the ability to build strong relationships with clients.
This is a cohesive team that fosters a team approach, valuing the contributions of each of its members. Its many firm social events, innovative vision and warm atmosphere make this firm a great place to work. The firm offers excellent work with a variety of clients.
