SullivanLaw seeking litigation lawyer to join Ottawa office

SullivanLaw is currently looking for an entrepreneurial litigation lawyer to join its diverse and interesting practice, Ottawa family lawyer and civil litigator Timothy N. Sullivan tells AdvocateDaily.com.

This opening is a great opportunity for a new lawyer interested in private practice at a small litigation firm, says Sullivan, principal of SullivanLaw. It's also well-suited for a more experienced lawyer who wants the benefits of a small firm without the risks of sole proprietorship.

He’s less concerned about years of experience and more interested in lawyers who are either looking forward to building a book of business or who already have clients and prospects.

An interest in litigation, principally family and civil, is ideal but other areas are available. Sullivan notes the opportunity is well-suited for someone who wants to join an active, thriving practice but would also like some work/life balance.

The successful candidate will assist with existing family and civil litigation files and some solicitor work may be available to keep things interesting.

Sullivan says while the associate will be expected to build a book of business if they don’t have one already, they won’t have to do it alone.

“One of the firm’s core values is a commitment to mentorship,” he says. “This opportunity offers a great deal of independence but you won’t be flying without a net. You can sometimes feel quite alone in a firm, particularly when things go bad — here, we have each other’s backs.”

A friendly attitude and great research and writing skills are a must, Sullivan says.

“We expect excellence and diligence, not perfection, in our service to clients,” he adds.

Interested candidates should send a cover letter and C.V. to the attention of Rebecca Lewis at contact@sullivanlaw.ca before 3 p.m., July 20, 2018.

References will be requested at an interview, as well as a sample of your legal writing.
