We are pleased to announce the appointment of Sarah Dever Letson, CIPP/C as the new Managing Partner in our Saint John office. Managing Partners play a significant leadership role in our local offices, entrusted with the care of our lawyers and staff, as well as overseeing our client initiatives and community outreach.

Sarah will take over from Clarence Bennett, K.C., who served as Managing Partner since 2016. Drawing from her substantial experience in cybersecurity and regulatory law, Sarah has demonstrated her commitment to advancing the Firm’s objectives through her involvement in various strategic initiatives, including her membership on the Firm’s AI Task Force and her role as Privacy Officer. Sarah’s dedication extends beyond her own professional achievements; she is invested in fostering a supportive and enriching environment where every member of the Firm can grow and succeed.

We extend our sincere thanks to Clarence for his dedication to the Saint John office over the past few years, and congratulate Sarah on this significant appointment.
