New Partners Join Advocates LLP
Posted on: January 14th, 2019 by

Advocates LLP is proud to announce that associate lawyers Jeff Van Bakel and Kyle MacLean have joined the firm as partners.

Kyle began working with us at the end of his articling year. Since then he has consistently demonstrated his growing skills, aptitude for innovation and sound judgment while working with our team on all aspects of complex commercial disputes. Our clients have recognized his talents, and the group of those for whom he has taken on leading roles continues to expand. We are excited to affirm our great expectations of Kyle, as we welcome him into the partnership. Kyle practices in the areas of Construction Litigation and Professional Negligence.

Jeff came to us 15 months ago from Toronto where he spent 10 years working in a large and diverse commercial litigation firm. Jeff’s practice involved commercial, construction and professional disputes. He had already developed solid well-honed skills that he was looking to apply within Advocates’ practice areas serving our core group of commercial clients. Jeff’s move back to his family roots in the London area has proven to be beneficial for Advocates’ clients, while also strengthening the depth of our team. Jeff practices in the areas of Professional Negligence, Construction Litigation and Shareholder Disputes.

Welcome to the partnership Kyle and Jeff!
