Start Your Career at Pallett Valo

Pallett Valo is a great place to work and to grow

Our students are our future. We hire you with the hope that you’ll become associates and ultimately partners of Pallett Valo.

For this reason, we invest significant resources in helping our students develop into capable and accomplished practitioners, both from a legal and business development perspective.

Join our dynamic and growing team

We’ve built Pallett Valo into the largest firm in Peel Region by bringing together a group of passionate and hard-working individuals with an entrepreneurial spirit. If you’re talented and motivated, you’ll fit right in. Qualities, like these, will also come in handy:

  • Strong work ethic
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Self-starter with initiative
  • Client-centric
  • Attention to detail
  • Enthusiasm
  • Team player

We see our students as our future partners, so entrepreneurial aptitude is a key asset. Commercial savvy, understanding the business world and the challenges our clients face, will be useful.

Don’t worry, if you don’t have experience of actually running a business – transferrable skills gained through extracurricular activities or community involvement will be fine.

We’re looking to hire exceptional students whose work ethic is reflected in their grades. Straight As are not a requirement, but grades need to show consistent effort and/or improvement.

Students, with a demonstrated interest in our firm and what we do, stand out among the rest. A connection to Peel Region is a bonus.

Summer and articling programs

As a student at Pallett Valo, you will receive hands-on training from legal professionals who are leaders in their fields. You will have a high level of responsibility and often work on a file from start to finish.

Given the short duration of the summer program, we do not have formal rotations for second-year summer students. Instead, we ensure that summer students gain substantive exposure to a broad range of our practice areas. It’s to give you a taste of what it’s like to practice law and the benefits of working in a mid-size firm.

Practice areas and rotations

As an articling student at Pallett Valo you will participate in a formal rotation system, with approximately half of your time spent in commercial litigation while the other half is spent assisting all other practice groups.

Mentorship and training

We don’t leave you to your own devices. Although responsibility is given early, it’s always with the support of the people around you when you need it.

Being a midsize firm means that every student will get hands-on experience under the supervision of colleagues who support you and want you to succeed just as much as you do.

Our mentorship program provides informal guidance and structured training. You’ll receive continuous feedback, advice and direction.
