At Cassels, we believe it’s important not only for us to get to know you, but for you to get to know us. It’s our people and supportive culture that really make Cassels a special place to build your legal career.
Here’s what some of our lawyers have been saying about why they joined Cassels as law students and have chosen to continue to pursue their professional career as part of the Cassels team:
The draw for me to Cassels has always been the people—lawyers, administrative staff and students alike. I love the positive, team-focused environment we have within the firm from which we service the business needs of our clients on a daily basis. Having the opportunity to assist clients from a variety of industries while working closely with my colleagues at Cassels is very rewarding and keeps me coming back to face new challenges every day. – Jay King, Partner, Business Law Group, Toronto Office
Simply put, the reason I chose Cassels and the reason I choose to stay boils down to one thing… the people. Returning to law school after having worked for 4 years, I had a sense as to what type of work environment I desired so that I could thrive in my legal career. The sense I got from everyone as I interviewed was that the people at the firm were its not-so-hidden secret. And that has proven to be the case as I’ve continued to progress with my career. We have a great team, with everyone striving towards a common goal – but with a smile. – Kwaku Tabi, Associate, Financial Services Group, Toronto Office
Whether it was the first day of interviews or my most recent day at the firm, I chose and continue to choose to work at Cassels because of the people and the relationships that I have developed. I have had the opportunity, as a student, associate and partner, to work with and learn from exceptional lawyers on sophisticated and complex transactions. The supportive firm culture and emphasis on mentorship at Cassels creates an environment that allowed me, from an early stage, to simultaneously develop technical expertise, file management skills and foster new and existing client relationships. – Jamie Litchen, Partner, Business Law Group, Toronto Office
I knew little to nothing about practicing law or working in a law firm before participating in summer student recruitment (and likely even less than I thought at the time). As I met people at Cassels, it quickly felt clear to me that this firm was a friendly, congenial, and supportive community in which I could thrive and learn to be the best lawyer I could be. Fast forward to the present and those values continue to personify the culture at Cassels (and I know a lot more about practicing law). – Christopher Selby, Partner, Advocacy Group, Toronto Office
