The Globe and Mail quotes Toronto lawyers Marc Shewchun, Will Shaw and Martin Denyes in an article on Marc joining the Emerging Technology group at Fasken.
“Early-stage companies have an enormous need for the services offered by big law, and firms like Fasken are being thoughtful in figuring out how to deliver those services,” Mr. Shewchun said in an interview. “As someone who worked at startups, I understand the reality of building a business with a limited budget for legal services.”
“Marc brings a wealth of knowledge on the innovation economy, and will complement the services Fasken delivers to the tech sector,” Mr. Shaw said in an interview. Mr. Shewchun earned a graduate degree in aeronautics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology prior to becoming a lawyer.
“Emerging tech is a vibrant sector, with creative people generating new ideas. Our job as lawyers is to help clients protect their ideas and grow successful companies,” Martin Denyes, Fasken’s managing partner for Ontario, said in a press release. “Marc will play a key role in the continuing expansion of our national emerging tech group.”
