We are lawyers, law clerks and managers who are passionate about family law. Our type of work is very challenging and demanding, which is why we offer a diversity of benefits to help keep employees happy - both professionally and personally.
At SFL, egos are checked at the door because we’re stronger when we work together. In fact, teamwork, humility and respect are part of our culture’s DNA. Our open door policy and flat hierarchy keeps the knowledge and information flowing freely within the team, creating the ideal work environment for mentoring, teamwork and learning. Most importantly, we encourage people to be themselves because believing in yourself is the first step to achieving a successful career.
We help employees reach their full potential by working with them to create a custom career plan based on their own career goals and milestones. Not everyone is at the same stage in their lives or careers, so our career plans are unique to each employee. Whether you need to attend training sessions to learn new skills, obtain a certification to meet industry rules, or to gain more experience to become the firm’s next partner, the career plan is the employee’s roadmap to a successful career in family law. Our standards are high and the work is demanding, but the growth and learning opportunity is tremendous for people who can embrace the challenge and experience.
High performing employees shouldn’t have to sacrifice their personal lives to advance their careers. Our Flex Program provides employees with more control over with their work schedules, which is part of our ongoing commitment to promoting work/life balance in the workplace. Under the program, employees can work from home, take paid time off (without using vacation time), and work flexible hours. Employees use the Flex Program for a wide range of reasons, but ultimately, the program is designed to give employees more flexibility with their schedules and to keep them happy at work… and at home.
The average professional spends approximately 35% of their adult life at work, so we try to make the time at work pleasant and comfortable. In addition to a modern office space incorporating the latest technology, we offer competitive salaries, a peer recognition bonus system, an employee referral program, full health benefits, quarterly firm events, weekly food catering and a bottomless supply of snacks, teas, espressos, lattes and cappuccinos. We also have a Holiday Program that provides extended long weekends and winter breaks to help employees recharge after the busy periods. We even help reduce commute time by having our office centrally and conveniently located at Bay and Adelaide, just a few steps away from the TTC and Union Station.
If you have what it takes to join our busy law firm, then we’d love to hear from you.
