Associate, Litigation & Dispute Resolution (Calgary)

Our Litigation & Dispute Resolution group at Blake, Cassels & Graydon LLP (Blakes) continues to grow. Blakes is widely regarded as the market leader for Litigation & Dispute Resolution and we are looking for an associate with two to five years of direct litigation experience to join the Calgary office.

When disputes have high stakes and great risks are high, clients retain Blakes. Our multidisciplinary Litigation & Dispute Resolution team is armed with the skills and insights required to achieve results that matter. We work with our clients at every stage of a dispute, from fact-finding and risk-evaluation through to final resolution and enforcement. We succeed at the trial and appellate levels, in court, at the negotiating table, and before tribunals and government agencies. We collaborate, we strategize, and we win.

Our lawyers take a client-first approach to each unique situation. Disputes are not treated as litigation files but as business problems to be resolved in the most creative manner. Our complete range of advanced risk-management strategies helps clients avoid many disputes altogether. With all the litigation advice and expertise needed under one roof, our lawyers share information, work collaboratively, and learn from each other. We also have an industry-leading continuing education program, and encourage involvement inside and outside of the firm.

Associates in the Litigation & Dispute Resolution Group will:

  • practice in an array of areas of law that affect business. These include Arbitration, Class Actions, Commercial Litigation, Construction, Energy Litigation, Environmental Litigation, Insurance, Product Liability, and Securities Litigation, among others.
  •  our associates work as part of a team on larger matters, and more independently on smaller matters. They attend court, prepare witnesses, prepare pleadings and briefs, conduct document review, and conduct questioning. They are given opportunities early in their career so that they will succeed later in their career.
