(10+ Years’ Experience)
Laishley Reed LLP is a boutique commercial litigation firm located in downtown Toronto.
Its founding partners, Russell Laishley and Chris Reed, were previously Co-Managing
Partners of a full-service Bay Street law firm before setting up Laishley Reed LLP in
2000, a firm that prides itself on providing the highest quality of client service, while
being a great place to work for its lawyers and staff. Its clients range from high net worth
individuals to large corporations, and its lawyers not only enjoy an excellent reputation
with their clients, but also amongst their peers in the legal community. As a result, they
routinely receive referrals from other lawyers for their respective areas of expertise.
With a current team of 5 lawyers, the firm is seeking an experienced litigator who
would be able to play an integral role in the future development of the firm. Ideally,
this individual will be a commercial litigation lawyer, with a portable practice that
is complimentary to the lawyers’ current areas of litigation expertise, which include
tax, insurance, employment, condominium, insolvency, and general corporate and
commercial litigation, such as shareholder and breach of contract disputes.
The ideal candidate will have a minimum of 10 years of ‘hands on’ litigation experience
gained at a leading law firm or litigation boutique, and will have a portable practice of at
least $400,000. In addition to the above noted current practices, areas of expertise that
would also be of interest include estates litigation and construction litigation. You will
be working independently on your own files – however, the lawyers frequently discuss
file strategies with one another, to ensure that they are providing the highest standard of
service to their clients.
This is a unique opportunity to run your own practice in a collegial firm that offers
excellent administrative support, ongoing mentorship, and good work/life balance in a
professional and informal environment. The cost of practice is reasonable, as the firm’s
philosophy is not about generating a large profit from its partners, but is about the desire
to be excellent lawyers who enjoy where and with whom they work. If you would like
to learn more about this opportunity, please contact Lorene Nagata or Lesa Ong of
NagataCONNEX Executive Legal Search for a confidential discussion.
As this is an exclusive campaign with NagataConnex Executive Legal Search,
any resumes received from other sources will be forwarded to them.
