A colourful chat window. Fraser ask "Hi team! I’m getting started thinking about what we should do for our year end wrap-up message. So what happened this year!?"

It’s been, to put it lightly, quite the year. We’ve had to do a heck of a lot of things online. And so it’s in that spirit of online communication, socialization, and sometimes fun, that we put together our look back at the year that felt like a continuation of the never ending year that was 2020. We are pleased to present: The Iler Campbell Office Chat Machine.

October 22nd, 2021 by Iler Campbell

We’ve been busy hiring and promoting our staff and are pleased to announce the following staff changes at Iler Campbell LLP.

Ken Farrell joined the firm in August to help our clients with their real estate and corporate commercial needs. Ken also has a strong interest in wills and estates – you may have seen his recent webinar.  If you missed it, you can view it on our website here. Ken has practised law in Toronto for the past few years primarily serving individuals and small business. He’s very keen to use those same skills in the non-profit, co-operative, and charitable sector.   To learn more about Ken, please read his biography here.  We’re confident you’re going to enjoy working with Ken as much as we have over the past couple of months.

Although because of the pandemic, we didn’t have an articling student in 2020, we are pleased that Maggie Fleming started her term articling at Iler Campbell also in August.  Maggie is from the GTA but spent the last three years in Victoria BC where she studied law.  She’s pleased to be back in Ontario to apply her learnings to real-life situations.  We’re happy to introduce her to you here.

Finally, Hunter Stone has been one of our administrative assistants since 2017 – some of you will have already had chances to work with him in that capacity. We’re delighted he’s accepted the position of Law Clerk with us where he will work primarily on litigation and landlord and tenant issues.  You can read more about Hunter here.
