James McPherson is a graduate of McMaster University’s DeGroote School of Business with an Honours Bachelor of Commerce Degree which he earned in 2014. Knowing he had a passion for studying the law, he went on to obtain his Bachelor of Law (LL.B.) in 2018 from the University of Leicester in England.
James has summered at Sullivan Festeryga LLP on and off since 2013, and will join the Firm as Associate when he is called to the bar.
James is a member of the Hamilton Lawyers’ Association and attends annual Hamilton Lawyers’ Club events. He enjoys working in the Hamilton area because of the community of lawyers that make up the Hamilton Bar.
Being an Articling Student at Sullivan Festeryga LLP has given James an opportunity to experience the areas of law that he is personally interested in. These include Insurance Law, Personal Injury Litigation, Corporate and Commercial Law, and Wills and Estates (meeting clients to draft their Will and POAs).
Sullivan Festeryga LLP allows students to be open about what kind of work they are interested in. Articling students get the opportunity to work with the lawyers that specialize in that particular area of law, which in turn, results in a meaningful articling experience with a team of lawyers that treat you with respect and kindness.
His personal interests include golfing on a variety of courses, weightlifting and summers spent at the cottage in Wasaga Beach.
