Lawyer Monthly - September 2021 Edition

From The Editor

Welcome to the September 2021 issue of Lawyer Monthly!

It’s hard to believe that the summer is already behind us. As we push on towards the end of the year, now is as good a time as ever to start thinking about progress for the future – whether that be in regulation, investment, intellectual property or employment law, as our September articles will explore.

Our cover story this month is from Laura Bruyer. A driven family law attorney, she shares her insights into the backlog of cases that have built up in Canadian courts, the deleterious effect that this has had on families and, most importantly, what the legal profession can do to help. She also speaks on her own experiences as a lawyer and firm founder and how they have shaped her
practice today.

As usual, this issue features a monthly round-up of news and current events along with an overview of M&A activity and lawyer moves, as well as a plethora of features discussing topical issues such as property development, whistleblowers’ rights and class action lawsuits.

We hope you enjoy this edition and look forward to seeing you next month.
