What attracts lawyers to Wickwire Holm? A number of things set us apart. We’re a well-established firm with more than a 100-year history in Halifax. Over that time, we’ve earned a good reputation and built a strong and loyal client base. We’re a mid-sized firm and that’s exactly how we like it because it allows our lawyers to advance their careers, do great work, provide a high level of personal attention to your clients, and enjoy a work-life balance that’s often hard to find in larger firms. We also invest in technology and people so we can be more efficient and offer more affordable rates to our clients. If that sounds appealing, we’d love to hear from you.
