2020 has been a wierd, exhilarating and surreal 12 months for YLaw. One of many largest honours YLaw has ever achieved is being positioned as No. 139 on The Globe and Mail’s High 400 Quickest Rising Corporations in Canada.
YLaw was the one regulation agency from BC to make this nationwide record, and the one female-lead regulation agency within the nation to obtain this award.
To obtain this award throughout a pandemic and whereas elevating an toddler makes it that rather more particular for me.
This award is the product of years of sleepless nights and relentless days spent on believing in a single dream: that I can change the way in which regulation corporations are run. I can deliver well being and happiness to our regulation agency tradition. I can deal with our purchasers like they’re my household. I can deliver well being to a notoriously unhealthy occupation. And I don’t should be ashamed of it.
331% Development in 3 Years
My dream got here by this 12 months after I obtained an e mail from the extremely prestigious Globe and Mail, notifying me that YLaw has gained this rating. I used to be additionally invited to an interview and photoshoot. After the preliminary shock, I discovered the braveness to answer and naturally settle for the invitation.
To my shock, The Globe and Mail had picked my firm and a handful of others from the 400 record to profile. This was simply an icing on an already scrumptious cake that I didn’t count on to obtain.
When the article got here out and I noticed my photos and write up, the final 10 years of my life flashed earlier than my eyes. My arms began shaking and I chocked up crying.
I proudly shared the article with the agency, household and mates, however earlier than anything, I knew and nonetheless know:
I’d be completely nothing with out the love and help of this unbelievable group of individuals I work with, my household who has stood by me by thick and skinny, and my child who has made me hold sane throughout this pandemic.
Thanks, thanks, thanks all our purchasers, friends and followers for serving to us develop. We couldn’t do it with out you.
