Private Practice

Corporate and M&A Lawyer

October 9, 2019

We are looking for a lawyer to join our growing team.

Reasons why it’s great to work here:

  1. We love what we do, and we only do what we love.
  2. We have a big, bright startup-style office space and camaraderie.
  3. We are very selective about the clients we take on, and we only work with great people.
  4. We do precedent-setting work, both private and public. Check out our work here.
  5. You’ll be the lead lawyer on key files, and you’ll have control and support in growing your practice.
  6. We provide customized compensation plans that could exceed Bay Street salaries.
  7. Your colleagues are friendly, genuine, smart, and supportive. No internal competition here, and you can count on your team members.
  8. No billable hour targets. We work together as a team to get the job done.
  9. The fridge and cupboards are kept stocked with healthy snacks, and there’s a wine rack and beer fridge in the boardroom.
  10. Firm retreats, Raptors nights, games nights, and axe throwing are just a few things we like to do together.
  11. All of our work is done on Apple products. Our technology makes us cool, efficient, and mobile.
  12. Family-oriented atmosphere: we’ve had three babies born to SkyLaw team members in the last six months alone, and they come visit us all the time!
  13. We have so much fun.

Reasons why you’d be perfect for us:

  1. You have experience leading corporate transactions.
  2. You take pride in your work.
  3. You’re friendly, genuine, and curious.
  4. You enjoy the business of law and working directly with clients.
  5. You want to be part of something that’s growing, where you can feel a sense of ownership and pride.
