Ogilvie’s new articling students will contribute to Ogilvie LLP’s strong firm culture

Securing a position as an Articling Student at a top provincial firm is challenging. Not only are you competing in a pool of accomplished personalities, but you must distinguish yourself from this competitive pack. High marks from law school and notable work experience are a given. The successful candidates are those that demonstrate that there is something special and unique in their character that will contribute to Ogilvie LLP’s already strong firm culture.

The current Ogilvie Articling Students are a diverse group that bring talent and energy to the firm.

At Ogilvie’s Calgary office, Abhimanyu (Abhi) Malik brings his international legal training to the Articling Student position. Abhi is an internationally trained lawyer who moved to Canada and began his legal career as a Legal Assistant while he trained for admissions to the Law Society of Alberta as a Student-at-Law. Now, Abhi is finding the demands of the firm are well suited to his solution-oriented nature. Adjusting to life in Calgary has been a smooth process for Abhi. Like so many Calgarians, Abhi takes advantage of the proximity to the Rocky Mountains and gets out on his mountain bike as much as he can.

The two Edmonton students, Jack McCaskill and Kiana Smith, are well acquainted with each other, having been teammates in their negotiations class at the University of Alberta School of Law. Both deflect praise to the other as being the force behind their team’s success. Jack commending Kiana’s organizational skills as Kiana recounts Jack’s ability to keep their group focused. Traits that will surely serve Ogilvie’s clients and be an asset to the firm’s team approach to doing business.

Ogilvie’s three new articling students are impressive individuals with strong work ethic. What makes them stand out is their ability to contribute to a strong firm culture that emphasizes the value of supporting the team. Welcome Abhi, Jack and Kiana!
