Want to know what former students at Minden Gross had to say about their experience?
Glen O. Lewis - Associate
2003-2004 Articling Student
Having shared experiences with my colleagues from other firms, I can say that Minden Gross provides a unique work environment that would be welcomed by most young lawyers. Reflecting on the articling process, I selected Minden Gross because I felt that the firm would provide me with the opportunity to work on complex legal matters in a collegial and supportive environment and my 5 years with the firm have served to confirm my initial impressions.
Given the size of the firm, I have had the opportunity to work closely with some of the most well respected lawyers in Toronto on a variety of commercial law matters and I am continually humbled by the extent to which these individuals are willing to lend their time and insights to assist me with files and support my professional growth.
Minden Gross commits significant resources to the professional development of its young lawyers through continuing legal education programs hosted by leading practitioners at the firm and various professional development organizations.
The firm also supports a number of well-attended social/recreational activities that bring the lawyers and staff together outside of the office setting. I believe that these initiatives have contributed to creating an environment where people enjoy working together and develop genuine friendships.

2006-2007 Articling Student
2005 Summer Student
University of Western Ontario
During the OCI process, Minden Gross stood out to me from other firms because of its people. It had leading practitioners who loved their job and who seemed to be able to balance work along with the rest of their life. After summering and articling at the firm, I can verify that these things are true. The lawyers at Minden Gross are friendly, approachable, and eager to mentor students. I worked on many interesting files and quickly became part of the team.
