NST is seeking to add an LAA to its team to cover a maternity leave from March 12, 2018 through to the end of the year. The role would be well suited to a junior LAA seeking great experience with an established and high-performance litigation firm. The successful candidate will be one of a team of two LAAs who support two senior partners and two associates.
Candidates should have achieved a diploma or be in the process of completing a program of study in legal assistant or paralegal training from a recognized institution in BC, and should possess excellent communication and interpersonal skills, as well as the ability to multitask and work well under pressure and in a fast-paced setting. Litigation LAA experience is preferred. Knowledge of one or more of the following is desirable: PC Law, Worldox, iPro, Summation, Adobe, and the Microsoft Office Suite.
While we cannot guarantee employment past the end of the maternity leave, we are a dynamic and thriving firm and the successful candidate will have every chance at continued employment should it become available. We offer a competitive salary and benefits package, as well as a warm and collegial team of staff and lawyers alike, with excellent mentorship of younger staff by a dedicated and professional team of LAAs and paralegals.
Resumes can be sent, in confidence, to Julia Lawn at email@example.com. NST thanks all interested candidates but only those selected for an interview will be contacted.
