WHAT WORKING HERE IS LIKE

See what our team members are saying…

Meagan MorinManager

I have been with EH for almost five years, having joined the firm as an Operations Coordinator in November 2015. For someone who enjoys learning about the different parts of a business and being challenged continually, this firm has been an excellent workplace that offers a rich and in-depth experience in a professional setting. I’m surrounded by intelligent, progressive, and human people, which has motivated me to be knowledgeable and responsive while still feeling supported.

Fabienne LajoieAssociate

An important part of growing as a lawyer has always been finding the right mentor. Many experienced lawyers at EH continuously share insights about legal matters and practice management skills. At EH, I’ve found a team and mentors who continue to support me as my career progresses.

Tess BrownResearch Lawyer

Despite having appeared before courts and tribunals as a litigator for a number of years, I have always been most passionate about legal research and written advocacy. Since joining EH as a Research Lawyer, I have found it incredibly fulfilling and rewarding to be able to contribute to the work of top legal professionals in a manner that allows me to not only apply but also hone my particular skillset. Plus, the supportive team environment at the firm means that maintaining a healthy work-life balance is a reality, and not just an ideal!

Research Lawyer

Moving from the full practice of law to the role of Research Lawyer has allowed me to play to my particular strengths and interests and, even more importantly, lets me truly enjoy my career. The ability to focus on the research and development of materials that serve not only my individual colleagues, but also the firm as a whole, has been a unique and rewarding experience. To do so within a firm that has the resources of a much larger firm but the feel of a smaller one is icing on the cake.

Manager

Intrinsically, I am someone who constantly needs to be contributing to change and improvement in a professional environment. I simply can’t do the day-to-day. Working at Emond Harnden for the past two years has been the perfect place for me to not only grow in my role specifically, but has also allowed me to be an active participant in the overall success of the firm. Bureaucratic hierarchy simply doesn’t exist here; your team is always open to progressive ideas and willing to offer support wherever needed.

Researcher

At EH, I found a place where my potential was recognized and where I could grow into more responsibilities. I enjoy the variety and challenge of working in Research where no two days are the same. And when I need flexibility for other aspects of my life, it is not a problem, I know I can count on my team.

Accounting Clerk

I have been working with the EH family for over 6 years, and I am proud to say I have contributed to making the finance department more efficient and productive. Working here has been rewarding, I’ve had two promotions since 2014 and they’ve helped me achieve some of my professional goals. I am fortunate to be working for an amazing company, doing something I enjoy.
