Career Opportunities For Lawyers

We are always looking for bright, hardworking, bold and confident lawyers to join our team. If you truly want to do more than carry bags and only work on other lawyers’ files then GKN may be the right fit for you. Our lawyers want to be the leaders – the lawyers who take charge over their files and their careers.

GKN provides a unique practical experience and hands on training that develops the vital skills and judgment to become a successful litigator. All lawyers have independent conduct of a full case load of files and conduct their own examinations for discovery, applications, mediations and trials. Mentorship is provided through assisting senior counsel on larger more complex files and through informal daily meetings with senior legal counsel that provide insight, guidance and assistance as needed.

We hold in-house seminars twice a month throughout the year so that our lawyers can conveniently attain the mandatory Law Society CLE hours. Topics of the seminars vary but focus on litigation skills training. We encourage all of our young lawyers to enroll in certain out of office programs such as the “Inns of Court” program.

There is no doubt, successful lawyers work hard especially in their early years as they develop their skills and judgment. We are no different but we truly value a work life balance. Whatever our interests or passions may be, we encourage all our lawyers to take time to slow down and enjoy life when opportunities arise.

We have a strong commitment to our respective communities. Our lawyers provide pro bono legal advice and give their time to a variety of different causes whether it is sitting on a board of directors of a charitable organization or picking up garbage in a neighbourhood park. We feel fortunate in our lives and want to help others where we can.

Around the office, the atmosphere is casual and social. Office doors are typically kept open acting as an invitation to drop by and talk about a file or current affairs. We host quarterly lawyers’ dinners which are well attended and are the highlights of the firm’s social calendar.

Our compensation package is among the top in the Canada. It is performance based pay and handsomely rewards hard work.

If you are someone who is looking for a challenging career in a professional and collegial environment that supports work-life balance, let us hear from you.
