Dentons’ Vancouver construction and infrastructure team is seeking experienced lawyers with an interest in either structuring complex projects or helping clients resolve project-related disputes to join us.
The Dentons difference
Our industry-leading construction and infrastructure team presents a unique career opportunity for the right lawyers:
- We highly value our colleagues' expertise, and we work collaboratively to create better solutions for our clients: our solicitors advise our disputes lawyers on the intended operation of contracts, and our disputes lawyers advise our solicitors during the drafting process on litigation risk.
- We work together nationally and globally: Dentons offers a unique and exciting platform both nationally and globally for talented lawyers who are driven to solve our clients’ legal challenges. Our team includes lawyers with international experience, so we encourage lawyers who are interested in relocating to Vancouver and have the right mix of talent, experience and dedication to apply, regardless of their current location.
- We excel at what we do: our focused expertise, our team collaboration, and our relationships with local, national and global clients provide our lawyers with exceptional opportunities to be leaders in their fields.
Who should apply?
If you are an ambitious, mid-level to senior lawyer interested in either the solicitor or disputes sides of our construction and infrastructure practice, and if you are excited by the opportunity we offer, we would like to hear from you. The successful candidates will work in a collegial and energetic team atmosphere with innovative leaders, and will be supported for long-term success. 5+ years of construction experience would be helpful, but candidates with 5+ years of related experience are also encouraged to apply.
