Here at JM&A we firmly believe that taking time to relax is crucial to being a happy, healthy and productive workplace, so we decided to hold an office social this past Friday. Enjoying what may turn out to be the last great skating day on the canal this season, JM&A staff took to the ice for some bonding, exercise and fresh air (and, okay, a few BeaverTails). Although there were a couple wipe-outs, everyone stepped off the ice in high spirits, not least because we were heading into a long weekend!
We are pleased to announce that as the new year begins, our firm also embarks on an exciting new phase. As of January 1st, 2016, Alison Longmore, Samantha Lamb, Dina Mashayekhi, and Randy Slepchik are partners in the firm. Randy, Dina, Samantha and Alison have all been valued members of the JM&A team as associates for the past number of years, and we look forward to their continued contributions in their new roles. This new structure has prompted the creation of a limited liability partnership, and so we will also have a (slightly) different name: Jewitt McLuckie & Associates LLP. However, our commitment to fighting the good fight with labour unions and working people remains unchanged. Happy New Year!
