Ascendion Law is a boutique litigation firm, with a commitment to excellence and innovation. We attract complex regulatory, criminal defense, and business litigation cases from clients in British Columbia and around the world. We invest in our people and our technology, and keep our overhead lean, so we can provide superior legal analysis and service to our clients.
We have a progressive work environment and welcome applicants from diverse backgrounds. We believe lawyers and team members should be able to have a rewarding career, work on challenging cases, and have time for a life outside of work.
Our lawyers, admin team and contractors have young families and often work non-traditional hours, sometimes remotely. We pride ourselves in meeting the tight deadlines inherent in a busy, competitive litigation practice and yet still actively cultivating a casual, collegial work environment.
To apply, please submit your resume and cover letter by 4 pm on Friday, March 12, 2021. We appreciate your interest in our firm, but only successful candidates will be contacted.
