Torys was pleased to welcome our special guest Deirdre Stanley, Executive Vice-President and General Counsel and Secretary of Thomson Reuters, to our Toronto office yesterday.
Ms. Stanley met with members of our M&A group to discuss aspects of the formation of Thomson Reuters. She also talked about the challenges of managing the legal needs of a multinational corporation, including executing international M&A transactions and integrating global businesses.
Ms. Stanley also addressed a group of more than 70 female students, lawyers and clients of Torys as a guest of the NETWORK, Torys' women's network. She shared some of her career-defining moments and talked about what life is like as a top female corporate executive managing both corporate life and family life.
Ms. Stanley was well-received. Attendees found it heartening and inspiring to meet and learn from such a strong woman who seems to have done it all.
We warmly thank Ms. Stanley for taking the time to spend the day with us.
