Practice Innovation Partner Paul Saunders has received a Lexpert Rising Star: Leading Lawyer Under 40 Award, recognizing his role as a trailblazer in the legal landscape across Canada.
Upon being admitted to the Stewart McKelvey partnership in 2015, Paul left his thriving corporate law practice to become the Firm’s first Practice Innovation Partner. He built a team to spearhead some of the Firm’s most complex and multi-faceted strategic priorities including practice re-engineering, legal project management, pricing and profitability and compensation alignment initiatives, all which have helped create a culture of continuous improvement throughout Stewart McKelvey. Using his background in IT and an innovative approach to the practice of law, Paul applies his technical skills to connect the dots, empathize with his client’s business needs, manage risk and solve structural problems resulting in long-term success. The innovative solutions that Paul has developed for Stewart McKelvey and our clients, both in delivering traditional legal services and in leading our Practice Innovation initiatives, is redefining how we deliver service to clients.
Paul has become a sought after speaker on the future of law practice, as a thought leader in legal practice innovation, project management, technology and process improvement. He presents regularly at Canadian Bar Association, Nova Scotia Barristers’ Society, and other conferences and events and has written numerous articles for Canadian Lawyer magazine and other legal publications.
