Commercial Litigation Associate

Here is an outstanding opportunity to join an exciting litigation team at Kornfeld LLP.

We are seeking two lawyers (a two- to four-year call and a four- to eight-year call) to join our team of some 15 commercial litigators. The ideal senior candidate will have a strong working knowledge of construction and builders’ lien matters but both positions will offer an opportunity to work on complex commercial disputes in a range of industries and contexts. Both candidates should have two-plus and four-plus years of quality commercial litigation experience respectively, and be motivated, mature, creative, and devoted to excellence and professionalism. Superior written and oral communication skills and a commitment to academic excellence are essential.

Our work is usually demanding but always exciting and challenging, often involving complex or high-profile disputes. Our clients range from large public and private institutions to business people with significant cases. The source of much of our work is referrals from clients and other firms, both regional and across North America.

Representing some of Canada’s most established companies, developers, entrepreneurs, and commercial lenders and borrowers, Kornfeld LLP / Kornfeld Shapray & Partners does large firm work in a more intimate, and personal environment. The merger has increased the litigation department’s bench strength and capacity to handle large complex matters and we need help.

We offer a supportive environment, devoid of bureaucracy, and composed of experienced and thoughtful lawyers and staff.  We offer a competitive compensation package tailored to suit the needs of the successful candidate and the firm.

Our firm and lawyers are recognized for proficiency by Chambers and Partners, Lexpert, Best Lawyers, Martindale Hubbell and Benchmark Litigation. For more information, please visit www.kornfeldllp.com.

Apply in confidence with transcripts and a cover letter to Abbas Sabur, Kornfeld LLP who can be reached at Suite 1100, One Bentall Centre, 505 Burrard St. Email: asabur@kornfeldllp.com
