Claudia Schneidman joined Fasken as an articling student in January 2022.
Claudia comes to Fasken with a well-rounded academic background. She graduated from the Université de Sherbrooke in Law in 2020, passed the Bar’s Professional Training Examination in January 2021 and has now completed several core courses in the Master of Finance program. While studying for her LL.B., Claudia became involved with the Université de Sherbrooke’s Clinique juridique entrepreneuriale in order to help local businesses. She also held the position of project manager for the Fonds d’Investissement étudiant de l’Université de Sherbrooke (FIEUS), and in her last year of university she qualified as a student-athlete by joining the University’s competitive Vert et Or team.
Passionate about corporate law, mergers and acquisitions and corporate finance, Claudia worked as a student for a firm specializing in tax and business law; there she was able to build her knowledge in this field and confirm her desire to work in the world of corporate law.
Finally, in order to learn more about corporate finance, she has also completed two internships in the financial world, i.e., at Société Générale and recently at Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec as an intern in Private Equity.
