Our client is a 3 person law firm, in the City of Calgary. Both the lawyers, and the Sr. Paralegal are from a larger national law firm environment and have gone on to create their own successful firm. This hard working team is looking for a likeminded support professional.
They require an experienced legal professional who can work well with all members of their team. You must be good natured, personable, professional and mature. You must have common sense, a willingness to take direction and work with the Sr. paralegal and lawyers in a close shared environment. You must be willing to step in and step up when needed. You must also, be willing to take on, as required, additional duties outside of the clerical norm, and maintain a professional teamwork attitude.
In addition to having 4 (or more) years of experience in Real Estate (commercial and residential), PC Law, and are current with the Law Society accounting rules (all of which are a must) and a bit of Corporate Contract law, you will also on occasion be expected to:
SHARE IN ALL aspects of office administration as they are required to be handled which include but are not limited to:

o Other duties that may be required as needed
This is the ideal position for a legal assistant/paralegal who is confident in his or her experience and knowledge and can assist with the day to day office tasks (coffee does not make itself) or taking direction from a peer.
