Robertson Stromberg’s Tiffany Paulsen and Chris Donald were interviewed for the most recent issue of Canadian Lawyer. The article “Saskatoon: Strong Economy Boosts City’s Legal Profession” by Mervin Brass looks at the recent growth in Saskatchewan’s economy and the resulting effect on Saskatoon’s legal community.
Tiffany Paulsen, leader of RS’s Recruitment and Retention Committee, says applications are at a record high which reflects the optimism of our community and the firm’s respectful attitude toward a balanced, inclusive workforce.
