Careers

There’s more to securities law than corporate finance and M&A.

We’re looking for lawyers with experience or a strong interest in advising our clients in the asset management industry on how to set up shop, get licensed, meet their ongoing obligations as registrants, and establish and run investment funds.

We do business differently than the typical Bay Street firm. Many of our clients are entrepreneurs, and so are we. We offer an exciting and challenging work environment, competitive compensation and opportunities for personal and professional growth.

If you are smart, practical and forward-looking, and you want to grow with our firm in the long term, submit your application to careers@aumlaw.com. Please include a CV and a cover note explaining why you are interested in working for AUM Law.
