Incorp Pro is a fast growing federal company, primarily provides two types of services (Canada wide): 1. business incorporation, registration and trademark services, 2. Legal Contracts Services. The company is a sister company of several other well-established corporations in Canada including a real estate company, business promo and print company, corporate paralegal service company and corporate registries. The company has offices in 3 locations in the country, Toronto, Vancouver and Edmonton.
Though a business or corporate lawyer apparently seems more suitable for the position, yet the opportunity is open for any field of law the hiring purposes and regular duties can be performed. One major duty would be supervising articling students for Alberta Law Society, hence must have sufficient years of experience as as Bar Member.
An ideal candidate would be a lawyer who has experience with writing legal contracts and some knowledge on preparing corporation's article. The work is simple and not in depth of legal in nature. Because the company is more in paralegal nature than a law firm, the lawyer will work more as a overall guide for our corporate registry agents, will prepare customized article, professional corporation's article, provide notary public services to clients that come to our office (also for internal documents for all sister companies). In some cases, the lawyer may need to provide legal advice (mostly over phone and live chat or walk ins) regards to corporation set up or legal contracts writing and other general legal questions.
