Canadian Premier Life Insurance - Senior Legal Counsel - Toronto

  • 5 to 8 years experience
  • In-house
  • Canadian Premier Life Insurance Company
  • Toronto, Ontario , Canada

For more than 60 years, Canadian Premier Life Insurance Company (CPL) has been committed to providing financial security to Canadians and their families. Providing a wide range of innovative products in life, sickness, accident and credit insurance, CPL proudly insures over 1 million Canadians and families coast-to-coast. CPL is a Canadian affiliate of Securian Financial Group which is among the leaders in the U.S. insurance market and provides services to nearly 4,000 financial institutions.

CPL is seeking an experienced Corporate/Commercial Lawyer to join its north Toronto office. Reporting to the Chief Legal Officer and working as a member of a small and collegial team, you will advise on both day to day legal and compliance issues and be involved in the strategic growth of this financial services company. The successful candidate will work across several business lines and gain exposure to a wide variety of work including: drafting and negotiating commercial agreements; advising on insurance regulatory requirements, privacy and general compliance; supporting corporate acquisitions, dispositions and strategic transactions; providing general corporate legal support; and advising on special projects as they arise.

The ideal candidate will have 5-8 years of general corporate/commercial experience gained from a reputable law firm or an in-house law department. Although prior experience within the financial services and/or insurance industry would be considered an asset, it is not a requirement for this role. CPL is seeking a self-starter with excellent communication skills and a team-oriented approach to practice. This is a great opportunity to build your career with a leading financial services company that offers a balanced work environment.

If you have the requisite skill set, please apply in complete confidence to Danya Cohen
(a Canadian qualified lawyer) at RainMaker Group.
