Established over 100 years ago in Vancouver, Lawson Lundell LLP is a highly successful law firm known for its strategic and practical approach to legal and business problems. The firm is recognized and respected by its peers in legal and business publications and was recently named by Business in Vancouver as the fastest growing law firm in Western Canada.

With offices in Vancouver, Calgary, Kelowna and Yellowknife, the firm’s clients are leaders in Western Canada and around the world. With its recent focus on the global economy, energy efficiency and the environment, Lawson Lundell’s 165 lawyers have positioned themselves well to provide the advice and commitment required to assist in the success of its clients as they flourish in today’s economy and prepare for what’s to come. 

After a very successful 12 years at the firm, Lawson Lundell’s Chief Operating Officer will be retiring in 2020. As a result, a rare opportunity now exists to provide financial and operational leadership and expertise to a successful professional services firm.  Based in Cathedral Place in beautiful downtown Vancouver, the COO will report directly to the Managing Partner and is an integral and essential member of the firm’s Executive Committee. The Chief Operating Officer’s mission is to provide the hands-on leadership to the functions that ensure seamless and effective operations in each of the firm’s offices.

The ideal candidate is an experienced CPA and finance leader who brings experience leading other functional areas of an organization, such as HR, IT, Facilities and Office Services. This experience could either come from a professional services firm or other type of organization characterized by a sophisticated operating culture and a fast-paced work environment. What will be key is that this individual will thrive among a highly educated and expert workforce, in an environment in which multiple ‘owners’ work on site, and be comfortable operating at both the strategic and operational levels.

This is a unique opportunity for a senior finance professional seeking an executive position in the challenging and lucrative world of professional services management. Relocation support will be provided to the right candidate.
