If you want to be different you'll fit right in. 

Culture isn’t created in the boardroom. Harper Macleod’s culture is the sum of the actions of the people who make up our business – it’s built around taking calculated risks and pushing for innovative solutions. You know the law, but you also know that there’s much more to being a lawyer than that.

At Harper Macleod you’ll be part of a collective effort that is never satisfied: sharing the stresses, celebrating the successes and inspiring one another to always improve. You want to deliver extraordinary results for your clients. We want to deliver extraordinary opportunities for you, and encourage you to make a difference.

You know that doing things the right way is always the best way – the right things for clients, colleagues and our communities. We will never compromise on this.

We believe the best is yet to come for Harper Macleod.

If this sounds like the type of firm you’d like to be part of, maybe the best is yet to come for you?

We embrace flexibility – including when and where our people work.
