SullivanLaw hiring litigation associate

This could be a fantastic opportunity for a junior lawyer interested in a litigation practice, or a more experienced lawyer with his or her own practice who needs a place to call home.

If you have a passion for litigation, problem-solving and watering office plants, consider joining SullivanLaw. We can discuss employment or if you prefer to remain more autonomous, we can discuss options.

What the position offers:

  • A good working environment and culture that believes in a healthy work/life balance
  • Internal referrals and billable work on existing family and civil litigation files
  • Some solicitor work may be available to keep things interesting
  • As much mentorship as you want or can stand
  • Office resources to accomplish the tasks
  • During the COVID-19 pandemic, accommodations for a safe and practical work environment

What the ideal lawyer brings:

  • Interest in litigation, principally family and civil (but other areas are available)
  • A desire to join a thriving practice but would also like some work/life balance, too
  • A book of business or eagerness to building a practice
  • Research and writing skills
  • Good organizational skills
  • An entrepreneurial streak

What we expect:

  • Excellence and diligence, not perfection, in service to clients
  • You will take the practice of law and the obligations lawyers have seriously, but do not take yourself too seriously
  • You may have to water the plants from time to time. The upside is that we have snacks
  • You are a paid-up member of the Law Society of Ontario
  • French or other language proficiency is an asset but not a requirement

Does this sound like you?

Please send a cover letter and C.V. to the attention of Rebecca at References will be requested at an interview and we’ll also ask you for a sample of your legal writing.

Get in touch – we’d love to hear from you.
