Waddell Phillips PC is an up-and-coming, ambitious and fearless litigation boutique. We are seeking an equally ambitious and committed litigation associate, who can think outside the box, to join our team.

About you:

You are an exceptionally talented (and nice) lawyer with 2 or 3 years of experience in civil litigation.  Class actions experience is not required, but definitely an asset. You are technically proficient, entrepreneurial and tough-minded, and you thrive working independently in a fast-paced environment. You are a big picture thinker, and you jump at the opportunity to join an exciting and emerging firm on the ground floor. You are comfortable working on a wide range class actions and civil litigation, including both commercial litigation and human rights and social justice causes.

About us:

Margaret Waddell, John Kingman Phillips and Julia Tremain formed Waddell Phillips in 2017 to give themselves the freedom and opportunity to pursue cases and causes in accordance with their own rules. Each partner is highly regarded as a skilled courtroom advocate and leader in their fields.

Our current class and mass actions cover the gamut of privacy breaches, product liability, professional liability, consumer protection, Charter breaches, securities class actions, and institutional abuse.

Waddell Phillips is committed to fostering a diverse and welcoming work environment, and we encourage applications from people of all backgrounds, identities, and cultures.
