Legal Counsel Job in Calgary, AB at TOM Capital Management Inc. –
TOM Capital Management Inc. is looking for legal counsel in Calgary.
TOM is a well-funded investment business with a hands-on, long-term hold approach. If you are somebody who wants to think critically, learn constantly and be an important part of a multi-disciplinary and high functioning team, then TOM may be a match for you.
Some of the great things about working with TOM:
A diversified portfolio of businesses, including some international activities, which makes for an interesting variety of work across several industries.
Exposure to a dynamic business environment.
In-house legal and business training to develop practical, big picture thinking, with focus on the details that matter – start with the forest and when necessary, zero in on the right trees.
While we value efficiency and accountability, TOM lawyers are not assessed on billable hour targets.
A chance to move beyond a strictly legal role with time and proven aptitude, if that interests you.
A small team atmosphere with good camaraderie, and flexibility.
An optional, go at your own pace, in-house fitness program with a professional trainer 3x per week (also great for stand-up comedy).
What the TOM Lawyers do:
The TOM legal team is a small group that provides a broad range of legal services to TOM and its investee businesses including transactional, operational and structural work.
TOM lawyers know the TOM businesses intimately, seamlessly integrate with them, and provide tailored expertise.
Build and oversee systems in TOM’s businesses to standardize and streamline legal and related administrative processes.
Play a broader role than one that is strictly legal – TOM lawyers are involved with our clients’ business judgement, and help to manage investment risk for TOM and its investee businesses.
Work with experts from leading firms where necessary.
Who/What we are looking for:
A minimum of 5 years corporate practice experience. Ideally, the successful candidate will have a strong corporate commercial skill set with experience in, among other areas, general contracts, acquisitions, re-organization and finance expertise. A combination of in-house and private practice experience would definitely be considered.
Additional experience and expertise in commercial litigation, employment law matters and insolvency would be considered an asset.
Strong drafting and negotiation skills.
Ability to run legal files from start to finish with minimal supervision.
A highly detail-oriented individual with exceptional problem-solving skills who has actively demonstrated a high degree of discretion and integrity.
A commercial minded practical problem solver with an aptitude for critical analysis, risk assessment, creative thinking, understanding, judgment and execution, not just in law.
Somebody who is adaptable, eager to learn and highly coachable.
Any experience outside the practice of law through a prior career in business that relates to the TOM businesses or the qualities outlined here may be helpful.
A member of the Law Society of Alberta in good standing, or another Canadian province with the ability to be called to the bar here in Alberta.
Much like TOM’s investment philosophy, we are looking for long-term team members.
We offer competitive compensation, good work-life balance, with opportunities to advance on proven success. We thank all applicants for their interest. Only those being considered for interviews will be contacted. Resumes will, of course, be received in confidence.
