Perhaps our partners say it best:

“No matter how smart you are, the key to early success as a lawyer is finding a champion—someone who gives you technical training while also supporting and promoting your growth at the firm. At Clark Wilson, we are lucky to have many partners willing to take on this role. This helps students and junior associates develop faster and also supports our succession planning for the firm. It has been instrumental to my success and is one of the many positive aspects of working here.”

“When I reflect on my legal career to date, mentoring stands out as the single most influential thing that has helped me become a successful lawyer with a fulfilling practice. Stephen Spielberg said that, “[t]he delicate balance of mentoring someone is not creating them in your own image, but giving them the opportunity to create themselves.” In my time at Clark Wilson, which started when I was a summer articling student back in 2004, my many mentors have struck this balance brilliantly. I started out as a general corporate solicitor but was drawn to commercial real estate due to the excellent mentoring I received as well as the exciting and dynamic clients and legal work that are characteristic of British Columbia’s commercial real estate market. Throughout my career, I have been fortunate to receive excellent guidance from senior practitioners in various different practice areas of the firm, and I am now at a point in my career where I am able to mentor younger lawyers and guide them to create themselves as confident, skilled practitioners who will have fulfilling careers and who will help us facilitate our clients’ business success.”
