Chen & Leung is growing!

We seek to hire two lawyers, with experience as follows:

  • Junior Litigation Associate (2 – 4 year call): The successful applicant will have strong research, analytical, and oral advocacy skills, the ability to advance difficult, technical disputes in an efficient and cost-effective way, and will excel at dealing with clients from a variety of cultural backgrounds. Experience with litigation software such as Eclipse and CaseMap would be helpful. Applications are invited from candidates with a wide variety of litigation backgrounds: commercial, employment, construction, wills and estates, family, administrative, and so on. Mandarin and/or Cantonese skills would be an asset, but are not required. You need not have clients of your own; we are recruiting to service our existing roster of clients, which is large, varied, and always growing.
  • Junior Solicitor (3-5 year call): We seek a solicitor to work with our experienced team on commercial and residential real estate transactions, construction, wills and estates, and commercial lending. You should have strong analytical skills and the ability to work well with people from a variety of cultural backgrounds. While we would love to hire someone with skill in either or both of Mandarin and Cantonese, we’d be interested in anyone who has the requisite legal chops. You are welcome to bring your existing clients with you, but we are really recruiting to service our existing client base, so if you only bring yourself, that’s OK with us.

These positions will appeal to lawyers who have had enough of the downtown big-firm grind, but who still want to practice top-notch law. We pride ourselves on our family atmosphere (we have many employees who have been with us for decades) and our genuine respect for work-life balance, but we work hard and we achieve excellent results for our clients. We offer competitive compensation and benefits.

We have just completed our move from Cambie and 41st, where we were for a quarter-century, to a fully-renovated, cutting-edge office space on the top floor of Airport Square.

Interested candidates should forward a covering letter and CV.
