NOTE: Nelligan O’Brien Payne LLP has not yet made a determination as to whether it will participate in the recruitment process in spring 2018 for the 2019-2020 Articling Program. Thank you very much for your interest in Nelligan O’Brien Payne.

Recruitment and Hiring

The Director of Research, as well as a committee of various partners and associates, are responsible for the recruitment and hiring of our articling students.

We are looking for creative, energetic individuals with a strong academic background and an interest in one or more of our areas of practice. We want congenial students who will foster an atmosphere of cooperation among all lawyers and staff, and who will demonstrate a sense of responsibility and the initiative to provide high quality legal service.

Nelligan O’Brien Payne LLP is proud of its reputation as a bilingual law firm. Although skill in both official languages is not required, we encourage applicants who can work in both English and French.

Nelligan O’Brien Payne LLP has traditionally looked to its articling students as its source of new lawyers for the firm. We recognize that people are our greatest asset and the key to our continued long-term success as a firm. We see the articling experience as the best possible opportunity to assess the personal character and professional potential of our future lawyers.

Nelligan O’Brien Payne LLP has progressive policies relating to maternity and family leave, and supports a workplace free of harassment.
