March Blood Drive

March Blood Drive

As personal injury lawyers, we know that many of our clients depend on blood donors after their car accidents, motorcycle accidents and biking collisions. That’s why we commit to donating blood as often as we can. Earlier today, staff from McLeish Orlando headed to Canadian Blood Services to give the gift of life.

We were excited that today’s numbers showed that 75% of our donors were doing so for the first time. McLeish Orlando loves being able to give back to their clients and the community, and will continue to donate blood regularly.

If you are interested in joining us during our next blood drive, please email .

 

McLeish Orlando Keeps It Local By Donating Ten Thousand Dollars To The Toronto Daily Bread Food Bank

bread-food-bank

Once again this holiday season, McLeish Orlando donated to the Toronto Daily Bread Food Bank’s Annual Holiday Food Drive. In the past, we have donated turkeys, but upon the realization that our monetary donation can stretch 2.5 times further, we switched courses.

Giving our donation of $10,000 to a local charity means that we are supporting the people in need within our communities. For every dollar donated, the Toronto Daily Bread Food Bank is able to give one meal to someone struggling with hunger, which means we are responsible for feeding thousands of people this holiday season.

Patrick Brown on The Agenda With Steve Paikin: Toboggan Hills & Lawsuits

Citizens are crying foul after the City of Hamilton posted signs at popular tobogganing spots warning that sledding was banned and violators would be fined up to $5,000. Cash strapped municipalities say they don’t want to be grinches, but they just can’t afford to expose themselves to potential lawsuits. The Agenda asks McLeish Orlando’s Patrick Brown if this is creating a liability chill, and if our court system has lost touch with reality.

Non-lawyers in the ownership mix

Alternative business structures could result in fewer, more well-funded firms

By: Dale Orlando, McLeish Orlando LLP

Published in: The Lawyers Weekly, June 27, 2014 issue

On Dec. 9, 2011, Law Society of Upper Canada members identified as a priority for the coming year the examination of alternative business structures (ABS) as a means of delivering legal services in Ontario. Based on the contents of the first report to convocation of the ABS working group (last June) and numerous comments at the society’s ABS symposium in October of last year, some form of ABS is likely to be approved in Ontario in the coming months and that will likely have implications for the personal-injury bar.
