Our Technology and Innovation team in Toronto and nationally is highly regarded for its sophistication and broad expertise across a wide array of technology-related matters.

It is also an opportunity to be part of a collaborative, collegial and innovative team, which has a significant focus on training, mentorship and development.
The ideal candidate will possess an LL.B or JD degree and will also have:
- 1 to 4 years of related private practice or in-house experience;
- exposure to technology agreements, such as technology outsourcing, cloud services, licensing, joint development arrangements, e-commerce, data sharing, distribution agreements and/or competitive/public technology procurements;

- exposure to transactional matters, including M&A and/or financings;
- exceptional client service, interpersonal and communication skills, strong organizational abilities, and a willingness to learn and take initiative;
