Daniel Melo Garcia joined Fasken as a student in the summer of 2019. Passionate about law, he loves to argue and defend ideas with the goal of finding the correct application of the law and justice.

Thanks to his legal experience in Brazil, during which he specialized in business and labor law, Daniel gained expertise in the areas of civil and corporate law. A speaker of three languages, he has also had the opportunity to work in French, English, and Portuguese. In doing so, he developed a strong sense of team spirit which allows him to provide thorough and effective service.

During his university studies, he had the opportunity to participate in the Charles-Rousseau Moot Court Competition in France, which allowed him to strengthen his speaking skills, among other things. He also participated in two international conferences (Fukuoka and Portugal), which allowed him to deepen, expand, and fine-tune his legal knowledge.

Prior to joining Fasken, Daniel completed a judicial internship in the Civil Division of the Court of Québec under the direction of the Honourable Judge Christian Brunelle.  He was also a student-contributor at the CDIPH, where he had the opportunity to work with American lawyers on a large-scale international case doing legal and doctrinal research.
