McCarthy Tétrault LLP

Bilingual Intermediate Law Clerk (Business Law)


Job Description

At McCarthy Tétrault, we offer challenging and rewarding career opportunities and are delighted to have been selected for the eleventh consecutive year in 2023 as one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers and one of Canada’s Best Diversity Employers. Our culture is built on professional excellence, collaboration, innovation, thought leadership and entrepreneurialism. We embrace inclusion in all its forms and we provide the tools and opportunities to help our people develop to their full potential.


The role is predominantly a French language role. However, many of the matters that a paraprofessional will be engaged with can be national and international in scope and do require a working knowledge of written and spoken English. Our paraprofessional team that is based in Montreal or Quebec City may be involved in national and international commercial transactions and work with English speaking documents and clients. This cannot be fulfilled by a team member assisting the incumbent as the role requires a working knowledge of English to provide support to a large national and international legal team.

This position is based out of Montreal, Toronto, Calgary, Vancouver or Quebec City. McCarthy Tétrault employees benefit from a hybrid work environment.

As a Bilingual Intermediate Law Clerk (Business Law), you will be:

  • Supporting in transactional matters in the context of mergers and acquisitions and corporate reorganizations (organization, drafting and follow-up).
  • Preparing and drafting documents such as annual resolutions, minutes of meetings, various resolutions, annual returns/declarations, incorporations and organizations, amalgamation documentation, as well as continuance (importation/exportation), dissolution, revival documentation and closing agendas.
  • Updating the minute books under your responsibility.
  • Performing minute book reviews in the context of a due diligence, drafting the corporate review reports and drafting the corrective resolutions.
  • Interacting with clients and lawyers when the circumstances require it.
  • Assisting paralegal from other departments, as required.
  • Performing any other tasks associated with this position.

As our ideal candidate, you will distinguish yourself by the following profile:

  • College diploma in paralegal studies or law degree.
  • A minimum of seven years of relevant experience in corporate law.
  • Capacity to manage many files simultaneously and work well under pressure.
  • Strong analytical and organizational skills.
  • Detail and solution oriented, ability to meet deadlines and take initiative.
  • Exercise judgment and make decisions.
  • Strong team work skills and ability to interact with support staff and specialists at all levels.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills in both French and English.

As a member of the McCarthy team, you will have access to:

  • Outstanding benefits from day one, including insurance premiums paid by the Firm and wellness and technology reimbursements.
  • Competitive compensation, paid overtime and generous time off, including a day off to volunteer.
  • A commitment to professional development and growth opportunities for our people at all levels, supported by a culture that fully embraces and encourages two-way feedback.
  • Strong community involvement and a commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion.
  • A collaborative, cohesive culture that connects lawyers and business teams through collective purpose.
