( 3-7 Years’ Experience)
Wilton Barristers is a boutique litigation law firm, recognized for offering effective
advocacy for their busy professional clients. The Firm’s practice areas include employment
litigation, as well as the defence of health professionals, lawyers and executives in civil
litigation, professional disciplinary hearings, and appeals. Its lawyers have appeared before
all levels of Court including the Supreme Court of Canada, the Federal Court of Appeal,
the Ontario Court of Appeal, and the Ontario Divisional Court.
The Firm is now looking to add a mid-level associate to its team. You will work
on employment litigation files, acting for management side clients, and will have
independent carriage of these files. You will also work on commercial litigation files,
such as shareholder disputes, and civil litigation matters, which include representing
professionals in court, administrative tribunals, and disciplinary hearings before regulated
health professional colleges.
The ideal candidate will have 3-7 years of ‘hands-on’ litigation experience gained at
a leading law firm or litigation boutique. Prior experience in employment law, health
law and/or administrative law would be of particular interest. You must possess strong
analytical, drafting and negotiation skills as you will be expected to manage all aspects
of litigation files from drafting pleadings through to trial. Excellent interpersonal skills
and the ability to manage client relationships will also be essential in this role. An
entrepreneurial mindset would be an asset, as the firm will support you in developing your
practice, if you wish.
This is a great opportunity to join a collegial litigation team that offers interesting work,
mentorship, and good work/life balance in an informal but professional environment.
While being supported, you will have the ability to work independently. If you would
like to learn more about this opportunity, please contact Lesa Ong or Lorene Nagata of
NagataCONNEX Executive Legal Search for a confidential discussion.
