Kevin Landry

Associate

New horizons, new ideas, new opportunities: law for the 21st century.

Kevin provides a skillset suited to the 21st century client who wants to navigate established industries or emerging markets in the age of disruption, where entire business sectors are reinvented overnight. He understands and facilitates commerce that works in the cloud and around the clock for those willing to approach business with an open mind and an eye to the future, and is aware that emerging industries and novel ideas require thoughtful advice because yesterday's solutions won't solve tomorrow's problems.

The founder of two start-ups himself, he appreciates the difficult choices his clients face while they make their dreams a reality. He is firm that, with the right advice, changing the world is within anyone's reach. He enjoys working everyday with risk-takers, dreamers and those questioning the status quo to build a better tomorrow.
