Legal Assistant Position

HERE WE GROW AGAIN!

We are accepting résumés to fill two Legal Assistant positions in our Toronto Office.

  • FLOAT Position - 5 to 10 yrs AB and Tort experience - if you have ever wanted to experience floating (i.e. working with multiple lawyers doing a variety of tasks) and, if you can confidently jump on any desk and handle any situation, and, of course, you get along with everyone – this would be the time to investigate this rare opportunity!
  • Senior Legal Assistant - 5 to 10 yrs AB experience  - do you have the skills, grace, and confidence to keep up with a Partner who has a super-busy practice, AND is a Client Relationship Manager?

In either role, you will be responsible for a number of daily responsibilities, including:

• Draft correspondence and other legal documents as required 
• Keep an up-to-date filing system 
• Schedule discoveries, mediations, and other important dates 
• Managing calendar appointments 
• Digital dictation
• Prepare files to be sent to storage for closing 
• Communicate with opposing counsel, clients, and the court 
• Maintain the utmost professionalism when speaking to clients and opposing counsel 
• Other duties as requested
 
The successful candidate will have the following:
 
• Priority will be given to those with insurance defence experience, although everyone is encouraged to apply, 
• Experience using Elite Webview would be considered an asset,
• Work well under pressure and in a fast-paced environment,
• Professional communication skills, both written and oral, 
• Must be proficient in Microsoft Office - especially Word and Outlook, 
• Detail oriented and consistent in quality of work, 
• Organization and prioritizing skills, plus other duties as necessary.
