We are looking for 2 general practice lawyers to join our busy and unusual team in the sunny Okanagan. We are specifically looking for lawyers to join our practices in Kelowna and Penticton/South Okanagan.
We are BC's first multidisciplinary partnership of BC Notaries and lawyers working together. We created this MDP because clients would come to our notaries and ask for work which the notaries were unable to do, such as probate, family law or incorporations. We felt the best way to provide a one-stop service to our clients was to partner with lawyers, so the clients could get the right kind of legal services without having to leave to go to another firm.
You would be working with a wide range of people, helping them with their non-contentious legal matters. Many of your referrals would come from our BC Notaries, but you would also be expected to develop your own practice.
One of our founding partners is The Notary Group, which is the trade name for Janzen & Caisley Notary Corp., a professional notary corporation. The Notary Group is one of the larger conveyancing houses in the Okanagan, and this practice produces a substantial number of client referals for our lawyers.
We are paperless, and, in response to COVID19, working on developing best practices around remote connections with clients. We are passionate about access to justice issues, and work towards creative ways of supporting communities where there may be no direct legal presence.
The successful candidate will love working with everyday people, will love problem solving, and thinking outside the box. You will be able to work in a team environment, and you will understand the importance of documenting everything you do. You will have a great work-life balance, and be able to enjoy all the wonderful benefits of the Okanagan.
If you can see the real value working with a BC Notary might bring to your practice, contact us. We'd love to hear from you!
