Interested in joining our team?

We think we have the best team out there.  Our offices are located in some of the most beautiful locations in Ontario, offering our team members a fantastic lifestyle and a collegial yet challenging work environment.  

LAWYERS:  With a diverse range of seasoned partners, certified specialists and senior counsel, we offer unparalelled opportunities to gain experience and mentorship in a wide range of areas of law.  We also have what we think is the best group of Associate Lawyers there is, which provides new lawyers with comaraderie and support.  We set up each of our young lawyers for success by providing them with a designated mentor (in their practice area) and "buddy" (outside their department).  We provide a competitive compensation package along with budgets for continuing education and business development.  We include all of our lawyers in the ongoing strategic planning and direction of the firm, giving everyone a voice in their future.  We also provide business development training and coaching, and what we believe to be a rare glimpse into the operations of our firm.  We believe that our firm's ongoing success is dependent upon the input and engagement of our Associates.

We welcome your further inquiry.

Please direct all correspondence and resumes to hr@barristonlaw.com

SUPPORTING TEAM MEMBERS:  Our legal assistants, law clerks, paralegals and administrative & tech staff are hugely important to our team, and we look for the very best.  With a culture of exemplary client service, responsiveness and open communication, having the right supporting team members is crucial.  We are very proud of the fact that many of our team members celebrate milestones such as 40 year, 35 year and 30 year work anniversaries with us.  We offer a competitive compensation package which includes extended health care and pension program.  But just as important, we offer a great working environment of mutual respect and "get it done" attitudes. We work hard to include all of our team members when it comes to driving change in the organization, thinking outside the box, and creating efficiencies.  The sharing of suggestions and ideas is encouraged and valued.

We welcome your further inquiry.
