Cunningham Swan is the region’s premier full-service law firm. Established in 1894, our firm has been a trusted member and contributor to the Kingston and area community for over 115 years. With our roots solidly planted in the past, Cunningham Swan is looking toward the future. We continue to excel in providing services in both traditional and evolving practice areas and are seeking dedicated and dynamic people to join us in our growth.
Learn by Doing. You can only expect to become a skilled and competent lawyer by experiencing what skilled and competent lawyers actually do. That is why students at Cunningham Swan become directly involved in everything we do. From discussions on strategy development, to attendance at client meetings, examinations for discovery, administrative hearings, arbitrations and court appearances, this real experience helps you decide where your interests and skills may lie.
Gain Exposure. Cunningham Swan is unique. It offers the opportunities and exposure that a student would expect at a larger law firm in a larger centre, but with the hands on experience and collegiality that can only be achieved in a small firm environment. As a student at Cunningham Swan you will be exposed to a broad range of practice areas, with close supervision and mentorship, while having the encouragement to focus on your areas of interest as they develop.
Room to Grow. We aim to hire associate lawyers who we hope will grow into future partners. With this goal in mind we look for intelligent and enthusiastic individuals who will contribute their unique skills and interests to our diverse group of lawyers. We seek to identify individuals that demonstrate professionalism, strong analytic, academic and interpersonal skills and who have an interest and commitment to the local and regional community.
Enjoy Life. As lawyers, we are only as successful as the networks that surround us. With this in mind, our families, colleagues, friends and community are all important to us. Our commitment to the Kingston community extends beyond our office walls and we encourage every member of our firm to nurture the relationships and interests that allow us to excel both personally and professionally.
