Newfoundland and Labrador regional managing partner Neil Jacobs quoted in Canadian Lawyer
Neil Jacobs, Newfoundland and Labrador regional managing partner, is quoted in an article by Donalee Moulton exploring the recent expansion and growth in St. John’s due to the discovery of untapped oil fields.
Within St. John’s: Big-city practice, small town lifestyle, Neil states, “Newfoundland and Labrador has gone from a have-not province to a have province. That changes the whole dynamic within the country.” The growing oil industry has resulted in a shift in the kind of work being done within Newfoundland and Labrador and Neil explains that law offices are now getting the experience with bigger clients and larger-value deals that could only be found previously in larger cities and economies.
