SNF Wins Mississauga Board of Trade Award: Employer of the Year

2015-MBOT-Award-winner-logo

It is a well-known business principle that happy teams are more productive and therefore more profitable (see a recent Harvard Business Review article on this point here.) Speigel Nichols Fox LLP has always understood this and worked hard to keep its team positive and engaged.

We’re therefore thrilled that the Mississauga Board of Trade has recognized Speigel Nichols Fox LLP as this year’s recipient of the Employer of the Year Award at the November 2015 Business Award of Excellence Gala.

According to the Mississauga Board of Trade:

The Employer of the Year Award is awarded to a business in Mississauga that has consistently demonstrated exceptional commitment to engage, retain and develop employees. This organization creates a positive, fair and supportive environment for all employees.

The sold out award ceremony was a glitzy affair with Master of Ceremony Anwar Knight delivering laughs all night “someone cue the Benny Hill theme.”

Partner, Irving Fox took to the stage with Rose Avarino to accept the award and reminded the attendees that we are all privileged to be doing business in the City of Mississauga. He gave full credit for the award to Rose Avarino, a 17-year SNF veteran, whose drive to promote SNF’s attributes was an important factor in SNF’s award.

He further recognised the importance of the SNF team, as a whole, and reminded the audience that a business is only as good as its parts and that a positive team mentality is crucial to the success of any business.

OBA and OJEN’s Law Day

Posted in SNF News

I had the honour of judging the Law Day Peel Mock Trial Tournament finals held at Gordon Graydon Memorial Secondary School on April 24th . The top two schools competed in a neck-and-neck race with Cawthra Park Secondary School  as defence and Chinguacousy Secondary School as crown in the day’s final mock trial.

Both schools did a great job and it was clear to me that they grasped the overarching legal concepts and court room procedures. Cawthra Park edged out Chinguacousy because they had a bit more court-room flare and were better prepared. My guess is that a few of the legal team members are also dramatic arts majors at Cawthra Park.

OJEN Law Day

On a personal note, being back at my alma mater, Graydon, on the eve of my 30th birthday made me wistful beyond words. Special thanks to  Ontario Justice Education Network and the OBA.

Prior to joining Speigel Nichols Fox LLP, he practiced at a litigation boutique in downtown Toronto and learned the more practical realities of how to achieve success for his clients. Tim combines the best of both a big and small firm – he has the academic pedigree required at a Bay Street firm and the practical experience of a lawyer who has actually run and litigated his own cases.
