Stikeman Elliott is an exceptionally friendly, informal and enjoyable place to work. Our work interests and engages us; our colleagues both challenge and support us. We work well together and, away from the office, lawyers, students and staff enjoy frequent informal social and sporting events.
In the Vancouver office, our lawyers and students are involved with several different social and team sporting events throughout the year. Every Friday after work, lawyers, students and staff gather for informal cocktails in one of the boardrooms. The partners host associate and student dinners, a golf tournament and a ski weekend. The firm hosts a summer picnic and a holiday party that includes guests. The holiday party includes live entertainment provided by the students, typically in the form of a skit. As part of the holiday festivities, the firm has an eggnog party followed by an optional gift exchange.
Our mixed softball league draws amateur athletes for the post-game free beer and food.
