What we look for

The quality of our people is the key to our success. Recruiting the right people at every level is therefore a critical part of our strategy. Our summer clerks become part of our firm from day one and contribute to our growth and culture. So, we look for clerks who are:

  • Enterprising - open minded, flexible and who think outside the square
  • Determined - willing to push beyond their comfort zone and who make things happen

You will need an excellent academic record, some work experience in a legal or non-legal environment, demonstrated leadership skills and a keen interest in commercial law.
