You chose law as a career for many good reasons. You are now at the point where you must choose a law firm. At Heenan Blaikie, we understand that such a decision is of paramount importance in your professional career. And we intend to give you every good reason to choose us.
Why then Heenan Blaikie instead of any other law firm? Simply put, because we’re not like any other law firm. But obviously there’s much more to us than a string of witty sentences. By working at Heenan Blaikie, you will benefit from continued professional development, namely under the form of mentoring. You will be given every opportunity to work on various files in different practice groups and encouraged to think outside the box, to contribute innovatively to the firm’s growth and future.
In short, as soon as you join Heenan Blaikie, you will be involved. From our perspective, it is crucial that you feel professionally at home in our firm because the hiring of students is our main source of recruitment. If we wish to welcome first-rate students and keep them at Heenan Blaikie after articling, we have to give them compelling reasons to extend their stay, so to speak.
When joining Heenan Blaikie, you will soon find that the values we cherish are not just words blowing in the wind. We truly practise and experience what we believe in. Collegiality. Openness. Respect for each individual. Diversity. Work-life balance. Teamwork. They represent some of the core values that define us. If you feel the same way, chances are we are made for each other. Who knows, it could be the beginning of a beautiful (professional) friendship!
