Samuel’s knowledge of corporate strategy and his ability to creatively solve problems will prove invaluable when assisting clients.

Is there a practice area or industry in which you are particularly interested? Why?

I am particularly interested in M&A and Capital Markets. I gained experience in these practice areas as a summer law student and found the work exciting. I also intend to work with Davies’ Environmental and Indigenous practice group, where I hope my education in ESG and Indigenous economic development will be helpful.

Why did you choose to work with Davies?

I was impressed by Davies’ culture. Its generalist approach and focus on hands-on experience and collaboration create an environment where I can best develop my legal and professional skills. I am also excited to work with the industry’s leading lawyers and clients.

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

I realistically would have continued my agency-side marketing career. I enjoy working with clients and the dynamics involved in providing professional services. But idealistically I would have become a winemaker, producing natural wines in the Okanagan or on Vancouver Island.
