Jamieson’s background in economics and finance equipped him with the knowledge and skills essential for a successful legal career.

He looks forward to working with small teams on high-stakes files and learning how the nuances of each area of law affect a transaction.

What experience, job or internship have you learned the most from or found most rewarding?

My work in investment banking in England was a life-changing experience. I worked with people from all over the world who spoke different languages and came from vastly different cultures and backgrounds. During my time in London, I had to adapt to the various challenges that the world can throw at you and learn about myself as a person.

Aside from your studies, what else do you like to spend time doing?

Hockey has been a passion throughout my life. I love playing strategy-based games and I enjoy playing the piano and guitar. I also spend a lot of time reading – I’ve recently taken an interest in autobiographies.

If you were not a lawyer, what career would you have chosen?

I would have worked in analytics for a sports organization. Sports analytics involves thinking through complex problems in a novel way that sets you apart from your competition. It is an area that has interested me for many of the same reasons that drew me to law.
