Job Summary

 AUM Law is an established Canadian law firm focused on serving securities registrants by advising on
a wide range of regulatory compliance. We support clients in this sector by providing legal advice and
services ranging from start-up to initial registration and compliance systems, through to on-going advice
on regulatory and business matters that arise in the course of a securities registrants’ life. We have
developed unique service offerings for our clients and focus on providing expert advice in a cost-effective,
efficient and forward-looking manner.

We are looking for lawyers with a strong interest in advising our clients in the asset management industry
on how to get started, get registered and meet their ongoing obligations as registrants, while growing
their business. A service-oriented mindset is vital, as is an interest in helping our clients understand the

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. This is an opportunity to get in and experience and
help shape the growth of an “alternative” legal service provider, as part of BLG Beyond and AUM Law.

We are looking for

  •  A 2-5 year corporate/securities lawyer with an interest in advising securities registrant clients on a
    wide range of legal and regulatory compliance matters, including initial registrations, ongoing
    registrant compliance obligations and regulatory audits.
  • The ideal candidate will possess an interest in securities law with some demonstrated experience
    in the investment industry and working knowledge of the relevant regulatory and compliance best
    practices, including the Securities Act (Ontario), NI 31-103 and NI 33-109.
  • Experience working with Canadian and international financial market participants, mutual fund
    companies, alternative asset managers and merchant banks would be considered an asset.
  • The ideal candidate will be a team player with strong analytical, personal, oral, and written
    communication skills, with a service-oriented mind-set to helping our clients.
