Legacy Tax + Trust Lawyers is a boutique downtown Vancouver firm specializing in the area of estate and tax planning, cross border advice and estate and tax litigation.
We are committed to being leaders in our respective areas and staying current on the latest legal developments. Simultaneously, we are committed to providing a collegial team environment with opportunities for professional development and advancement.
From time-to-time, we look for talented and driven leaders to join our team. If you have a penchant for challenging and exciting work within a team environment, we invite you to send us your application through our listed job posting or general application box. We offer a competitive compensation and benefits package.
Note: We will participate in the 2023/24 articling student student recruitment processes.
Our approach to our student program is the long view. We expect our students to become longstanding lawyers with us. We are committed to provide our students with the support and foundation to become an excellent lawyer. During the summer and articling year, students are integrated into the firm by way of work assignments, rotations (during articles), formal and informal mentoring relationships, internal CLEs and social events.
In the articling year, our student will complete a rotation with each of our Estates and Tax practice groups.
Each student will have a formal principal and mentor. Mentors meet regularly with our student to share feedback and provide guidance.
In addition to work assignments, regular internal CLEs are held. These cover both substantive and practical topics. From time-to-time, external speakers will present.
Our students are encouraged to apply for clerkships. We believe that clerkships provide valuable training and experience. Clerking provides experience with working in a court and understanding how judges work, interact and hear cases. In addition, clerks have the benefit of mentorship from judges and have the opportunity to develop strong legal research and writing skills.
Compensation and Benefits
The firm covers the Law Society’s costs of enrolment for summer articles and the articling year. Salaries for our students will be at market.
Benefits will be available to our articling student. This includes extended medical, dental and life insurance. Additional benefits include CLEs and a fitness subsidy.
