Great at first. You have to fight after the first few years to be promoted and paid market.

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Not a team environment. You are pitted against your colleagues. Not welcoming for a person of visible minority group. Very old boy’s club. Salaries are not at market rate. Partners do not have solid succession plans for associates.

Typical toxic Toronto law firm

Partners do not care about you. You’re just a warm body in an office chair. They expect you to work 7 days a week. They do not like employees who work from home or come to the office only between 9-5. They expect you to work 8am-7pm and be in office everyday. They will tell you they offer remote work during the interview but then change the expectations after accepting the job. Partners use group intimidation to make you work more. If it wasn’t for their starting salary, no one would work here or force themselves to stay. VERY TOXIC environment, many better firms out there.


Good salary.


No work life balance, long hours, toxic work culture

Truly horrifying.

Beware of management. They do not care about employees whatsoever and punish those who dare to request assistance or attempt to address any of the many, many problems present in the firm including a sexism and an apathy towards diversity and inclusion.

Fast paced mid-sized law firm

Fast-paced law firm where I completed a variety of tasks related to commercial and residential real estate files. Worked with very able lawyers on complex files. A typical mid-sized law firm.

Typical law firm environment

Management was not good with a regular review process - out of touch. Many nice people work here. Firm events are well attended. Premises are well looked after.

Enjoyable atmosphere

It is a good and comfortable atmosphere to work in. Wages are a little below other firms located downtown Toronto. There is not really any way to move up in the firm.

Very tough work environment

The partnership environment is a tough place to work and operate. Every partner has a different way of running their book of business which makes it hard figure out.

Exposure was great for an entry-level law clerk and legal assistant

I would recommend this firm for anyone looking for co-op hours or exposure to litigation and the procedures. It was a great opportunity.

Wonderful place to work and gain experience; amazing staff and lawyers.

Very proactive firm. A typical day: check email; open mail; draft correspondence/pleadings; follow up with client/ insurance company/ insured; do dictation; schedule meetings and/or discovery. It's a large firm so there is always someone there to help you if need be. I loved working at Blaney's, it's given me alot of knowledge and experience I need to excel elsewhere.
