The year 2020 marked the 30th anniversary of Stewart McKelvey as a regional Firm. To celebrate, we took a look back at the Firm’s rich history to acknowledge the milestones and honour the achievements of our people, past and present, as a thank you to the lawyers, staff and clients who have been with us on this journey. A special thank you to Saint John partner, Ken McCullogh, K.C., for narrating.
