Our corporate/commercial group handles a wide variety of matters including large commercial transactions, joint ventures, real estate development, commercial financings, purchases and sales of shares, assets and land, corporate governance and franchising. We act for major financial institutions, real estate developers, home builders, corporations, partnerships and individuals working in many different industries. Warren Benson Amantea LLP prides itself in working in a team environment, providing practical, creative and cost-effective legal services to all of our clients, whether large or small.

Located in the Calgary Beltline, our historic offices are a short distance away from the court houses and city core. We offer competitive compensation, benefits, performance incentives and a balanced approach to work and play. Our lawyers are eligible for extensive professional development, mentorship and advancement. We also encourage our team members to participate in charitable and social initiatives, as giving back to the community through your passions has been a core focus for our firm since inception.

Warren Benson Amantea LLP is seeking an energetic and highly motivated individual to join our corporate/commercial group as an associate. The ideal candidate will have 3 to 5 years of broad corporate and commercial experience and will be proficient in structuring commercial transactions, drafting corporate and commercial documents, including incorporation documentation, unanimous shareholders agreements, partnership agreements and joint venture agreements, completing due diligence reviews, and providing general advice on business structures. Experience in tax planning or tax knowledge is also an asset but not a requirement, as the firm has a high volume of tax driven work. The ideal candidate will also have exceptional capabilities in legal research and writing, analyzing corporate and commercial documents and communicating with clients and other counsel in a prompt manner. An interest in client development and marketing is encouraged and will be supported by the firm as we are in a substantial growth phase.

The successful candidate will also assist senior lawyers with more complex corporate and commercial transactions and financings, as well as will be responsible for a broad range of other corporate and commercial work. The successful candidate will also have the opportunity to expand their interest to real estate work, if interested. Conducting due diligence reviews, legal research and drafting agreements and other documents will form a large aspect of day-to-day activities. It is expected that the successful candidate will have the management of their own files, but mentorship will be readily provided. The ability to take instructions directly from clients and have comfort in interacting with clients is a must.
