At TC Young we are proud to be a friendly firm that cares passionately about our staff.  The partners feel strongly that it is beneficial when people enjoy their job and work hard to ensure they do.  We have several staff members (lawyers and support staff) who joined us over 30 years ago; who would confirm they stay with us because they like their job and the environment they work in, they’ve had excellent training opportunities and feel supported.
