Located in the heart of downtown, our Vancouver office is literally just steps away from the very best of what the city has to offer. Diversity and excitement abound in and around our beautiful city. Vancouver is home to an endless assortment of cultural festivals, ethnic celebrations, sporting events and outstanding cuisine. Natural beauty, a temperate climate, a safe and clean community and a thriving economy are just a few of the many reasons people of all ages choose to live, work and study in Vancouver.
We are all familiar with the old adage about all work and no play. Although hard work and productivity will be key to your success as a lawyer, balance is also an essential component. To reinforce this point, the firm provides a generous benefits package, including a fitness membership subsidy, to our students.
We field a number of recreational seasonal teams and activities that all lawyers, staff and students are welcome and encouraged to join. Throughout your articles you will be invited to attend firm-organized student dinners, firm-wide themed events, the Winter Party, the Summer Party and more.
Our unique culture in the Canadian offices can be illustrated by three defining factors:
- One Team Culture means seamless client service from a fully-integrated firm that works as a whole, rather than separate offices or practice groups.
- Clients are clients of the firm and not clients of any individual lawyer. While an individual lawyer will be responsible for the key client relationship, each client is served by practitioners best suited to their particular needs.
- Decision-making by consensus means that executive decisions have solid support of the entire partnership.
