You made it through law school and landed an impressive position. Shouldn’t you be concentrating on something other than just making it through the day? We’re looking for experienced, entrepreneurial lawyers to join us as we reinvent the business of law. Lawyers who have already done the nose-to-the-grindstone mega law firm thing. Lawyers who have worked in-house as General or Senior Counsel for some of the world’s finest companies. Lawyers who enjoy helping people achieve their business objectives. Lawyers who love making deals happen and solving business problems. Lawyers who bring that something ‘extra’ to the job. Lawyers who are interested in doing interesting work, on their own terms, while enjoying an attractive income.
To pass Caravel Law’s rigorous screening, you will need the desire to achieve a balance between your legal career and other aspects of your life. The willingness to work hard when you need to, so you can call the shots when you aren’t. The ability to adapt quickly, honestly, with integrity and common sense. A sense of humour isn’t mandatory, but it can’t hurt.
If you are interested in exploring life outside the traditional law firm setting or beyond the confines of a cubicle in a single organization, we just might be able to offer you the ideal work environment. In many instances, that could turn out to be your home office, giving you the best of both worlds – the fulfilling, stimulating, problem-solving kind of legal work you excel at and the freedom to enjoy more of all the other things you love. Sound refreshing? It should!
Why Our Lawyers Choose Caravel Law
Caravel Law provides me with a variety of interesting and challenging work on an autonomous and flexible basis that I can shape around my own career goals. I also appreciate the efforts of the principals to create a collaborative team atmosphere, and to find great clients, including many entrepreneurial ventures. I would recommend Caravel Law to any mid to senior level lawyer seeking interesting work, the ability to work within businesses and great work-life balance for whatever their outside interests might be. Caravel Law lets me focus on doing the best work for the client, at reasonable rates and with a solid, online infrastructure at my fingertips.
As a parent of a young child, Caravel Law provides me with the flexibility to spend more time at home and to do intellectually stimulating legal work of a broad variety. I believe that I have found, with Caravel Law, the perfect balance between my career, financial and personal objectives to truly say that I have the work-life balance that I have always wanted.
My experience has straddled both legal and business, having started my career at large Boston-area law firms before moving back home to Toronto to work in finance / business roles. I had always enjoyed acting as legal counsel to growth companies and decided that I wanted to get back to doing so…but in a way that would better allow me to shape my practice towards my personal interests and that would give clients a cost-effective option for legal services. Long story short, a good friend had worked on a deal alongside Caravel Law, and made the connection. It turned out that Caravel Law suited my needs, and I’ve really enjoyed working in this way. I’ve been able to bring more of my skills and experience to the table, get a better understanding of my clients’ businesses and have become a part of their teams as trusted in-house counsel.
