Who are Charthouse Lawyers?

Engaged in business law, real estate law, and estate planning and administration, Charthouse is a team of advisors whose sole purpose is to provide responsive, quality client services to businesses and individuals.

Our mission is to increase access to justice through entrepreneurial approaches to serving clients and to relieve people and local businesses of anxiety and confusion by matching the client to the right legal service at the right place. Our values are deeply rooted in our hiring and evaluation and focus on empathy, growth, candid conversations, and teamwork above anything else.

Who are you?

You are a lawyer with at least one year of experience in real estate, estate planning, or business law, capable of handling basic files on your own, such as residential conveyancing, simple estate plans, or contract drafting.

Beyond that, we are flexible and are more focused on hiring the right kind of person who will contribute positively to our culture and environment.

You are smart, fun, authentic, and inspired to make legal practice work better. You are a hard-working, accurate and team focused individual with a desire to contribute to a unique, robust, and growing community, both within the firm and on the Coast. Charthouse is looking for a candidate who matches our values and is open to hiring someone with different career paths in mind.

What is the position?

We are looking for a candidate who matches our values and are open to different types of candidates, such as:

  • an experienced senior lawyer looking to transition into a pre-retirement role,
  • an ambitious, business-oriented individual who wants to help build the firm and move into a partnership role, or
  • someone in the early-to-middle stage of their career who either loves people or loves legal minutiae and wants to have a 9-to-5 lifestyle.

We are flexible about role because we are inflexible about culture. So if this sounds like something that is a good fit for you, please reach out to Spencer Keys at careers@charthouselawyers.ca and let’s talk about what you want from your legal career!

To learn more about our firm, please review our values, Spencer’s “Happy Lawyer” profile, and his interview about Charthouse on the Lawyerist podcast.
