2017/2018 Articling Class, Toronto
Russell aspires to provide clients with specialized expertise and help them achieve their goals.
An undergraduate degree in finance prepared Russell for a legal career by giving him a thorough understanding of how businesses plan, manage and evaluate their opportunities. He chose Davies for our reputation and because our firm doesn’t pressure students to specialize in a particular area of law.
In 2016, Russell represented Canada and placed first in the International Negotiation Competition.
