JOIN CBM

CBM Lawyers is always interested in hearing from lawyers and administrative staff who believe they can make a positive contribution to our clients and the firm. 

Working at CBM Lawyers

What is it like working at our firm? Here is a brief overview of some of the values that have helped us achieve our success:

Modern: Despite our 60 year history we are always looking to the future. We have created a dynamic, inclusive and energetic organization. Our annual lawyers’ retreat provides us with an opportunity to assess our business, plan for the years ahead while enhancing ability to work successfully together while having a whole lot of fun. 

Forward thinking: Ingrained in our culture is the understanding that our long-term success is not measured by hours and billing statistics. Our success comes from client loyalty achieved by always working with our clients to achieve creative and early resolutions of the claims. We are proud to have acted for one leading insurer for over 50 years and others for more than 40 years.

Collegial: Most law firms tend to think of themselves as collegial. At CBM this concept is applied well beyond the sharing of ideas or discussions about challenging legal issues. Our lawyers do not work in silos protecting their client relationships. There is a firm-wide ethos that the lawyer best qualified to work on a file is the lawyer who will do the work, regardless of which lawyer brought in the file.

Progressive: CBM has built a work environment and culture that reflects modern working life and this approach has helped us attract and retain many highly qualified and successful lawyers.   

Community Minded: CBM is committed to community service and have a standing volunteer committee to arrange participation in various community projects. We are also committed to pro bono work and all of our lawyers volunteer as duty counsel in provincial court legal clinic.
