James Allester, 2018 Summer Student, 2019/2020 Articling Student, Current Associate

“From the moment I joined Blakes as a summer student I was immersed in the culture of the firm. I was given both challenging and meaningful work in my first week, and this trend continued throughout my summer. The wealth of knowledge and resources at Blakes made my work more efficient and more valuable to our clients. The opportunity to work on various files in a wide range of practice areas enhanced my summer experience and prepared me for my articles. The team focus at the firm both locally and across our offices worldwide enabled me to do the best work possible. The mentorship I received from Blakes lawyers this summer has been invaluable, and I look forward to returning next year to article.”
