MR's Sue Remmer Receives the 2023 Alberta Excellence in Mentoring Award

Please join us in congratulating Sue Remmer on being awarded the 2023 Alberta Excellence in Mentoring Award by The Advocates' Society.

This award was presented to Sue at The Advocates’ Society Annual Gala in Calgary on April 20, 2023. The Advocates' Society, founded in 1963, serves as a trusted resource for the thousands of advocates across Canada who are dedicated to becoming leaders inside and outside the courtroom.

The Alberta Excellence in Mentoring Award is an award presented to an advocate who has demonstrated both: (i) an understanding of the key role mentoring plays in supporting a successful career in law; and (ii) a commitment to mentoring young advocates in Alberta.

McLennan Ross is proud of all Sue’s accomplishments. Managing Partner, Steve Livingstone, K.C., notes, “I have had the pleasure of working with Sue in various capacities in our firm for many years. She has consistently demonstrated an unwavering commitment to maximizing our junior lawyers’ happiness, development, and long-term potential. Sue is very deserving of this award, and I am extremely pleased to see her getting this recognition. She is an invaluable and respected member of our firm, and I have no doubt that she will continue to excel in mentoring through guidance, encouragement, and by way of example.”

Jennifer Biernaskie, a partner in our Calgary office didn’t hold back her excitement. “Congratulations to Sue for being the recipient of the esteemed mentorship award! I am incredibly fortunate to work alongside someone so passionate about supporting, and advising young lawyers. It is safe to say that everyone at McLennan Ross LLP has benefitted from her active and dedicated leadership, and her endless positivity. Partners like Sue are the key to success for every firm.”
