PKF Lawyers operate in a collegial professional environment, offer leading edge technology, great ambiance, competitive compensation and benefits, mentoring from senior lawyers, teamwork, and an excellent opportunity to start and build a thriving practice and advance in the profession.
PKF Lawyers’ roots date back to 1924. Today, our firm is deliberately “mid-sized”; large enough to provide full client service across a broad spectrum of legal practice areas, while small enough to maintain a close knit and collegial practice and working environment. We consistently “punch above our weight.” For example, PKF Lawyers is one of only 2 law firms in Canada, and the only Manitoba law firm, recognized as a member of the International Society of Primerus Law Firms, a highly selective society of the world’s finest independent boutique law firms.
We operate out of multiple locations in Manitoba, and continuously strive to expand our reach, serve Manitoba better, and provide cogent advice that our clients can understand and trust. We are proud to be one of Canada’s leading firms when it comes to workplace diversity and we currently offer legal services in thirteen languages to Manitoba’s growing ethnic communities.
We are always looking for experienced and skilled lawyers to join our team. If you have at least 4 years’ experience practicing law in Manitoba, and are interested in becoming a member of the PKF Lawyers family, please call or email in confidence to Tom Frohlinger at (204) 956-0490 ext 2313.
PKF Lawyers is always looking to add smart, capable, and motivated articling student to join the firm. We look for future partners.
The PKF Advantage
We provide an engaging learning environment for our articling students where they have the opportunity experience and participate in legal scenarios that will add to their knowledge base and prepare them for a successful career in law. Our articling students consistently report that they receive excellent support, instruction, guidance, and valuable hands-on experience throughout their articles. You will not be “lost in the shuffle” here and will not be left teaching yourself how to practice. We take our commitment to you seriously and want you to succeed.
You will have the opportunity to work in and acquire experience in a variety of areas of practice and given exposure to your specific areas of interest. As part of our team you will observe, learn and participate in numerous aspects of practice, including:
Our goal is to help our students progress to point where they are able to conduct such matters with minimal assistance but have a full team of experienced lawyers to assist as required.
The future potential of continued employment with PKF Lawyers is of prime consideration when assessing articling candidates so that we may continue to grow and build a successful practice.

“I have enjoyed my articling experience at PKF. During my articling year, I have had a chance to work with several lawyers and gain experience in many areas of law. I am particularly thankful that I was able to article in a mid-sized firm such as PKF, where I have been given more responsibility and exposure than I would have had elsewhere. PKF’s lawyers and staff provided a supportive work environment, which I look forward to contributing to as an associate.”
We are currently not recruiting for support staff for our Winnipeg offices but are interested in receiving applications for our rural offices. Nonetheless we are always interested in experienced persons with unique qualifications and welcome you to submit your CV to Holly Kotowich.
