Who We Are

At Boughton Law, we do things differently.

Specializing in creative, outside-of-the-box solutions for a wide range of legal challenges, we believe in gaining a deep understanding of our client’s needs and objectives to better deliver long-term legal support.

Rooted in Vancouver for more than 70 years, our team of over 120 lawyers and professionals offers the robust resources of larger firms, while maintaining the team-oriented environment you’d find at a smaller practice. Our team members share a sense of initiative, strong communication skills, and a pragmatic approach to the work.

Whether it’s lawyers, staff, or students, our diverse team works together to make an impact that matters for our clients and community.

Who We Are Looking For

Boughton Law is pleased to be expanding its Immigration Practice Group in Vancouver, Canada, to meet business demands and to better serve our clients today, and into the future. We’re currently searching for an Associate with 7 – 10 years of experience to join this growing team and provide our clients with the excellent legal service.

The Immigration Group has extensive knowledge and experience in cross border transactions and provides expert advice for corporate immigration strategies.  The group works with clients in industries such as construction, engineering, film and television, information technology, mining, and transportation to assist with the renewal of permanent resident cards, maintain residency obligations, and if desired, obtaining citizenship.  The Immigration Group offers a specific expertise in the full spectrum of Canadian and American immigration issues and counsels clients on visa requirements, the issuance of temporary resident permits for Canadian entry, and waivers of inadmissibility to the United States.  The ideal candidates will be talented, detail-oriented, "hands-on", capable practitioners with a track-record of strong practice skills, solid judgement, entrepreneurial spirit, and excellent client and interpersonal skills.

Interested in working with a progressive, accomplished and client-focused team of lawyers in a unique firm environment that offers great support, resources and competitive compensation packages?  If yes, we'd like to hear from you.  Please submit your cover letter and resume today.
