Associate – Family Law

BARR LLP is looking for a family law lawyer to join our booming practice group focusing on divorces involving businesses. Lawyers with at least 3 years of experience in family law are preferred, as the firm is looking for a lawyer who can take the lead on files involving businesses, and who can assist on files involving the complicated intersection of corporate and family matters.

Experience with business issues in family law is not a requirement. BARR LLP provides a wealth of educational materials, hosts catered bi-weekly in-house training and collaborating sessions, and provides mentorship with Ken Proudman and Yoko Azumaya. Ideal candidates would have a desire to contribute to the greater family law community through volunteering on boards/CBA or presenting at seminars.

BARR LLP is a 15-lawyer firm located in downtown Edmonton and has been serving clients for over 20 years. We recently won the 2021 Top Choice Award for Family Lawyers in Edmonton. Last month we moved into a brand-new and larger space with state-of-the-art technology on the top floor of Sun Life Place. We have an excellent firm culture, a variety of competitive compensation structures, and opportunities for regular collaboration with our various departments including corporate, real estate, wills & estates, criminal defence, and civil litigation. In short, it’s an exciting time here at BARR LLP.

If you are interested in joining our firm, please send your professional resume in strict confidence to Yoko Azumaya at, or to BARR LLP, Barristers and Solicitors, Suite 2500, 10123 – 99 Street NW, Edmonton, AB T5J 3H1, Attention: Yoko Azumaya
