Job Description

Associate Lawyer – Corporate Commercial

The successful candidate will:

  • have 1 – 5 years of experience as a corporate commercial lawyer;
  • be engaged in a varied and diverse corporate commercial practice, which will involve providing legal advice in various business transactions, including mergers & acquisitions, corporate reorganizations, corporate governance, developing legal asset protection strategies, and secured lending and financing transactions;
  • draft and review a wide range of business contracts;
  • support clients with their legal and business needs, most of which are entrepreneurs of owner operated businesses;
  • have strong communication skills requiring collaberation with both clients, and with internal and external teams engaged to deliver outstanding and innovative results;
  • have the ability to anticipate problems and develop creative solutions to problems; and
  • be resourceful and possess the passion and creativity of an entrepreneur.

The job will provide the candidate with the opportunity to do the same work that they would otherwise have provided in a large downtown corporate commercial law firm, for clients that might otherwise have considered engaging a larger firm in the City, but without the politics of a large law firm and providing the candidate with the opportunity to have direct hands-on and face to face dealings with clients.

Affinity offers a collegial and supportive work environment, interesting, diverse and challenging work and the opportunity to develop the necessary skills to become a competent and effective corporate commercial solicitor.

We offer competitive pay, a comprehensive benefit package and programs to continuously encourage the education and development of our associates.

All interested applicants please submit your cover letter and resume with salary expectations.

We thank all applicants for their interest; however only those selected for an interview will be contacted.
