Employment Opportunities


We practice at the leading edge in the labour and employment law field, providing mission critical advice for employers. We are entrusted with key assignments for high-profile clients, and thrive in a setting where both individual accountability and collaboration are emphasized.  The rewards are commensurate with the high quality of the services we provide.



Neuman Thompson is a management-side labour and employment law boutique firm that is expanding with the support of a new strategic plan and associate mentorship and onboarding program.  We are looking for lawyers who want to be part of a dynamic team, who are innovative and progressive in their approach to meeting client needs and who want a challenging career within a collaborative environment.

Neuman Thompson has an exceptional base of local, regional, national and international clients whom we assist in navigating the ever-changing employment and labour law field.  We are committed to providing our clients with the best possible representation and have recently been included in the listing of the "Top 10 Labour and Employment Boutique Law Firms" in the country for 2018, as determined by the peer ranking process undertaken by Canadian Lawyer magazine.

We are committed to providing proactive and progressive solutions to our clients.  In doing so, we surround ourselves with the best lawyers and staff - people who can be relied on to produce quality work every day, to be on hand to assist in complicated matters, who are available in emergency situations, but who also want to achieve a sensible work/life balance.

If you have experience in handling hearings, trials, appeals, mediations and resolution conferences, possess exceptional communication/negotiation skills, are able to anticipate and address client needs, both on day-to-day matters arising within a corporate environment and during high conflict situations, and are looking to join an established law firm with an excellent client base and reputation, we invite you to apply in confidence to Terry Lewis, Office Manager, at tlewis@neumanthompson.com.

More about Neuman Thompson

The firm is in the sweet spot at 45 years old. Old enough to be rooted in experience and wisdom, yet young enough to be nimble, ambitious, and poised for an exciting future. We are a highly collegial team of 13 lawyers, supported by seven dedicated staff members. Our plans are to grow.

We are client-centric, focusing entirely on labour & employment law, share expertise with each other and work as a team. Professional and community involvement is important to us too and includes pro bono, charitable and non-profit work. We are also a collection of runners, basketball players, golfers, parents, piano players, and French-speaking, dog-loving humans. We love grabbing lunch together or relaxing over a cocktail after work. 

We believe our clients are among the best in Western Canada. They trust us with the most interesting and challenging work in our field.
