Until then, read on to learn answers to some of our most asked questions.
What is it like working at Reynolds Mirth?
Collaboration and teamwork are at the heart of Reynolds Mirth. The firm is made up of lawyers and staff who are driven, caring, and committed to delivering excellent legal service to our clients.
Working here, your perspective will be appreciated. You’ll be surrounded by colleagues who care and actually want to help, and you will have significant control over how your practice grows and develops. Notably, this ethos can be seen in the way our junior lawyers are immediately “in the mix”, attending Court, client meetings and working through files in supportive teams with midlevel and senior lawyers. Our teams have exceptional bench strength across several practice groups, and we provide high-calibre legal services to leading clients in the private and public sectors. The nature of our work means that we have fascinating (and high profile!) legal issues that our students and associates have the benefit of working on. Our students and associates have been to the Supreme Court of Canada and closed billion-dollar deals alongside our accomplished lawyers!
We’re conscientious, we enjoy our work and appreciate our colleagues, and we care about our community. You’ll find our lawyers pursuing a variety of interests, both within and outside of the law. Many of our lawyers are sessional instructors at the University of Alberta Faculty of Law, some have authored books or texts, and a number sit on high-profile boards. Outside of the office, our lawyers have rich non-legal lives centred around family, hobbies and other interests. We have athletes, musicians, arts and theatre enthusiasts, runners, dog lovers and more.
