Mid-Level Solicitor/Business Lawyer

We have an opening for a mid-level solicitor/business lawyer assisting our clients in business negotiations, governance and land development issues for First Nation Councils and their corporations. The ideal individual would have some strong experience (4-6 years call) in business, corporate or development law with with an aboriginal law firm, or a downtown or business-based firm. Experience working with First Nations is desirable, but individuals with a strong commitment towards a career in the growing area of indigenous business development and economic reconciliation will be considered. As a part of the Ratcliff legal team, acting under senior lawyers, you would also participate in major project negotiations and in providing governance, corporate structuring, partnerships and other business and general counsel advice.

Ratcliff & Co LLP is a leading aboriginal law firm in BC, with a strong focus on economic empowerment, serving First Nations since 1966. We are a full service firm, also working in the areas of governance, rights and title litigation and treaty negotiation and implementation, primarily for major First Nation governments throughout BC and the Yukon. Our offices are in North Vancouver. We strive for a mission oriented, team-based culture with a reasonable work/life balance.
