We thrive on the multifaceted and unique perspectives and talents of our people believing that diverse viewpoints, backgrounds and experiences enrich our professional lives, strengthen the quality of our work and improve our ability to respond to the full spectrum of our clients’ needs.
Our lawyers work together to offer seamless cross-border services to our clients all over the world. Dedication to professional excellence and outstanding client service is Torys’ hallmark. Of equal importance is our commitment to maintaining a collegial working environment – one that brings together individuals with diverse backgrounds, personalities and styles in an atmosphere of friendship and team spirit. As a Torys employee, you will enjoy both an exciting, fast-paced work environment and a supportive, collegial and team-based culture. At Torys, we take pride in our ability to attract and retain individuals who excel in their respective fields. We do this by providing stimulating work and learning and development opportunities, as well as a competitive compensation and benefits package.
As a lawyer in our Legal Services Centre (LSC), you will work on national and international matters originating in our Toronto, New York and Calgary offices, to provide the high level of service and quality for which Torys is renowned. We are seeking experienced and talented lawyers who can adapt easily to new processes and technologies and who want to engage in important work for prestigious clients in a flexible and collaborative setting. These non-partnership-track, long-term career roles are ideal for lawyers who prefer to focus on practising law. You will not have to devote time to marketing or client development. The LSC team includes lawyers with a range of practice experience (from 3 years to 10+ years), and we will grow the team as required. All LSC lawyers are included in our professional development programs and all firm-wide events and initiatives. Compensation and benefits are competitive.
By using technology, process-mapping and project management techniques, the LSC team will establish a high level of efficiency, effectiveness and expertise. You should expect your work to be recurring in order to accomplish the LSC's goal to be best-of-class in service and quality.
