A people first mentality.

Adair Goldblatt Bieber was founded to be a good place for clients and a good place for people to work. Whether joining our firm as a litigator, law clerk, legal assistant or administrator, we are committed to cultivating a workplace where individuals feel valued, supported, and empowered to advance their careers.

We are a community: We will help you discover and achieve your professional goals – not by pitting you against your colleagues, but by helping each other succeed. We genuinely enjoy the work and each other, and pride ourselves on being a community where passionate professionals come together to grow and thrive.

“Take the work seriously, not ourselves”: Litigation can be intense, but that doesn’t mean our workplace needs to feel that way. We are a close-knit and collegial group committed to breaking down the barriers found in many traditional law firms. We approach the complex and challenging work of litigation with levity, openness, and flexibility, to create a workplace that people enjoy, and where they feel supported and comfortable to be themselves.

Find balance: At AGB, we work hard but also recognize the importance of balancing a fulfilling career with a fulfilling personal life. This is essential for lawyers' wellbeing, mental health, and retention within the profession. We also believe that well-rounded lawyers are better lawyers.

"At AGB, we all have one thing in common: a passion for litigation. We enjoy learning about our clients and their matters, developing creative strategies and solutions to litigation, and sharing our unique experiences and perspectives to help each other grow." 

The AGB person.

Passionate: We hire passionate advocates. Everyone from our newest associates to our most senior partners is focused on honing their skills, advancing their careers, and contributing to the firm’s reputation for excellence. We are enthusiastic and passionate advocates.

EQ: Practicing litigation requires more than book smarts – it requires high emotional intelligence too. We focus on finding people with sound judgment who can relate to clients, engage productively with opposing counsel, and read the room.

Resilient: Litigation is complex and unpredictable – our litigators are flexible, agile, and adaptive. They capitalize on opportunities, form creative solutions, and effectively support our clients.

Intelligence & Experience: Our lawyers perform at the highest levels. Many were award winners at law school, clerked at prominent courts across Canada, and started their careers at other strong litigation firms. Their intelligence and experience promote sound judgment and drive exceptional client service.

Values: Decency, good humour, collaboration, and mentorship infuse our culture. As does integrity, in all interactions: with colleagues, opposing counsel, clients, and courts. These values, combined with our commitment to excellence, are why clients trust us. It is also why such talented lawyers choose to work with us.

Interested in joining our firm?

We are always happy to hear from exceptional legal professionals who will jump in, work hard, support our team, and aim high.

AGB is committed to improving the equitability and inclusivity of our industry and profession. We encourage applications from all equity-deserving groups and prioritize applicants with diverse experiences, backgrounds, and achievements. 

Please address your application to Alex Fidler-Wener and send your materials (cover letter, resume, and transcripts) to afidlerwener@agbllp.com, with the position for which you are applying (associate, law clerk, or legal assistant) in the subject line. 

We are committed to growing a legal team that reflects the diversity of our community. We accordingly strive to make our application and interview processes as inclusive as possible for all, including for members of equity-deserving groups, and particularly women, Black, Indigenous and people of colour, members of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community, and people with disabilities. 

In particular, we are cognizant that there may be elements of a candidate's application materials that do not accurately reflect their gender identity. If the legal name on your transcripts or other official documents does not reflect your chosen name, we invite you to let us know so that we can redact accordingly before sharing your application more broadly within our firm. If you would like to initiate this process or otherwise discuss how we can ensure our application and interview process is inclusive, please contact Alex Fidler-Wener. We are committed to ensuring that our recruitment processes are as affirming as possible for trans and gender diverse (or non-binary) applicants. 

With any invitation to interview, we provide candidates with an opportunity to advise – on an entirely confidential and optional basis – of any accessibility accommodations that would assist their participation in the interview process. To be clear, there is absolutely no obligation to disclose any disability or request accommodation, whether in advance of an interview or at any other time. We simply welcome such conversations with those interested in having them.

If you have questions about our equity, diversity and inclusion initiatives, please contact Chris Grisdale, who leads our firm's Inclusion Committee. You can also learn more here.
