Join Lerners Support
The word dedicated best describes our administrative staff. Everyone pulls together and rises to the challenge of supporting our lawyers and providing superior services to our clients at every turn. To ensure our commitment to customer service resonates throughout the firm, senior staff members serve as mentors to all new employees.
What we expect from our staff is dedication, timely responses, diligent support and commitment.
In return, we recognize their hard work with competitive compensation packages, training, flexible schedules, and numerous fun activities throughout the year.
Our administration staff consists of legal assistants, law clerks, accounting clerks, general office clerks, receptionists and other administrative positions.
Meeting the career aspirations of Ontario’s finest
Through cooperative education placements, student placements from community high schools, and ongoing recruitment initiatives, Lerners draws from the pool of talented individuals who live and work in Southwestern Ontario and the GTA.
We want staff members to enjoy working at Lerners and grow with our firm. That’s why we place a high priority on support, training and other initiatives – a practice that, in London, the London Chamber of Commerce recognized with the Workforce of the Future Award.
