Students at Willis Business Law are put in the best possible position to succeed. I had the opportunity to perform a variety of complex tasks while benefitting from oversight and feedback from senior associates and mentors. Willis Business Law’s team-based culture is truly one of the things that make it a great place to work. From day one you will be given meaningful, challenging work that contributes directly towards the final client deliverable. I enjoyed being constantly challenged to learn and take on larger roles on transactions, yet always felt comfortable that I had the support of the other members of the team. During my summer, I had the opportunity to work directly with William Willis, the firm’s Founding Partner, on the negotiation of a large asset purchase transaction, including attending a series of meetings, both with our client and the purchaser. I look forward to returning to Willis Business Law as an articling student.

Willis Business Law’s summer program provides a comprehensive learning experience. The program not only prepares students for articling, but also maintains an environment of education and self-improvement. The Willis Business Law team works together to ensure that students are being supported and coached constantly, while offering the autonomy for students to learn and grow through their work. During my summer I was given the opportunity to research a number of complex legal issues around commercial real estate and labour matters, draft several documents, and sit in on meetings with Founding Partner William Willis. Most importantly the summer allowed me to gain insight on Willis Business Law’s innovative approach to client service. I am truly looking forward to returning to Willis Business Law as an articling student this summer.

During my articles at the firm, I had the opportunity to work with a variety of corporate work. From complex leases to shareholders agreements and to employment issues, it was always interesting to learn about new industries while working on client matters. The lawyers include me in client interactions and always take the time to provide mentorship. I am proud to support our client from the beginning of a matter all the way to a successful closing.
