TGF is a dynamic law firm committed to training students to become exceptional lawyers. We provide top quality files, hands-on experience, direct client contact and ample supervision. At TGF, students can expect to receive a comprehensive and rewarding learning experience.

TGF typically hires one articling student per year. Our articling program is focused on active student participation. As such, students are given a great deal of responsibility early on in their careers. Students can expect to:

  • Draft pleadings and facta
  • Prepare motion materials
  • Appear in court on opposed and unopposed matters
  • Conduct legal research
  • Have carriage of their own small matters

Supervision and Rotation

Although students will have the ability to work with all lawyers in the firm, students are assigned two articling principals – one for the insolvency practice and one for the litigation practice. This ensures that students receive a broad exposure to both areas of law.


We provide compensation that is competitive with large, national law firms in Toronto.
