Internationally, CF invests in development platforms with like-minded partners, including Stanhope in the UK, Lincoln Property Company in the U.S., and Multiplan in Brazil. As CF continues to expand its portfolio internationally, it is seeking a Senior Director as part of the Legal team to work closely with the Investments team. This individual will oversee the legal aspects of these transactions, strategizing with the Investments and Tax teams on structuring, working with local and international external counsel, and reviewing, negotiating and advising on all relevant agreements. The work is interesting, complex and international in scope. This position, located at the head offices, in downtown Toronto, will report directly to the VP Legal, Assistant General Counsel & Chief Privacy Officer.
The ideal candidate will have 5-7 years of M&A, public and private equity investment and joint venture arrangement experience gained from a major law firm or corporation. Commercial real estate or development experience will also be of significant interest, as will a familiarity with financing arrangements. Strong negotiating skills and sound business judgement will also be required. This individual will need to be collaborative, pragmatic and possess the skills to navigate a complex organization. The ability to work within a dynamic team environment will be essential. As much of the work is international in nature, you will be working with different time zones and there will be some travel.

We are proud of our OneCF Culture, a diverse and inclusive culture that has been recognized with a number of recent awards including, Greater Toronto’s Top 2020 Employers, Waterstone Canada’s Most Admired Corporate Cultures (2019-2020), and Canada’s Greenest Employers (2020).
