The Toronto office of Baker McKenzie seeks a Mid-level Associate to join its Labour & Employment Practice Group, which comprises a team of experienced legal professionals serving both domestic and international clients on a truly global platform. The successful candidate will have 3-5 years of experience in labour and employment law, including experience in advocacy before the courts and administrative tribunals and advice and counseling. Experience in transactions is welcomed. The candidate would be expected to devote their time in labour, employment, and administrative law litigation and day-to-day counselling. Excellent drafting and communication skills, an aptitude to develop strong relationships and the ability to work as part of a team are essential. The candidate must have the ability to function smoothly in a global team environment with culturally diverse team members. Being bilingual and called to the bar in both Quebec and Ontario would be an asset. The candidate would be a member of our Toronto office team, but serious consideration will be given to any applicants who are based outside of the GTA anywhere in Ontario and indicate their ability to work mainly from a home office with a willingness to travel to Toronto as needed.

Interested applicants should include a cover letter, resume, references and transcripts. Applications will be held in strictest of confidence.

We welcome and encourage applications from diverse applicants, including people with disabilities. Accommodations are available upon request for candidates taking part in all aspects of the selection process.
