Litigation Assistant / IME Coordinator (Chilliwack)

Baker Newby LLP is seeking a Legal Administrative Assistant who will also be recognized as our designated IME Coordinator. This position would be ideal for candidates who have some basic exposure or experience in either Personal Injury or ICBC Defence Law, looking to enhance their skills and advance their career.

IME Coordinator is a unique and valued position within our Firm, working within a large department, assisting other senior legal administrative assistants with scheduling independent medical examinations, coordinating IME dates with clients, sending and receiving related correspondence, preparing materials binders for experts’ reviews, follow-up, diarization and confirmation activities.

IME coordination activities may not always occupy the full day, so in addition to those core responsibilities, other specific tasks for the successful candidate will include:
• Scanning all incoming mail, and electronically distributing it;
• Filing paper materials;
• Opening files and creating new folders;
• Updating Trial book indexes;
• Preparing initial meeting materials for potential new clients;
• Initial engagement and introductory letters for new clients;
• Preparing medical authorizations for new clients;
• Scanning and photocopying projects as required;
• Closing files.

While we appreciate all interest from recent graduates of Legal Administrative Assistant programs, those candidates with some experience and exposure to Personal Injury of ICBC Defence Law will be preferred for an interview. Experience in a paperless environment, with Amicus and/or ESILaw experience would also be considered an asset.

While we appreciate all applications, only those experienced applicants who are considered will be contacted.
