Eric Freeman is an articling student at Ross & McBride, where he is enjoying the chance to work with diverse practice groups and learn from lawyers with decades of experience in their fields.
During his time with the firm, Eric has discovered a growing interest in business and corporate law that started during his time at law school. While studying law, Eric was drawn to learning about the processes behind key types of files such as secured transactions, mergers and acquisitions, bankruptcies, and insolvency work. Building on that interest, he appreciates the different perspectives he has gained through working with other practice areas at Ross & McBride and looks forward to bringing those insights to his own future practice.
Eric is an amiable and dedicated young professional, who strives to reach ambitious yet achievable outcomes for his clients. He has a keen eye for detail and works hard to help clients overcome obstacles and meet their goals.
After completing an Honours BA in Criminology at Wilfrid Laurier University, Eric received his Juris Doctor from the University of Western Ontario’s Faculty of Law. As a law student, Eric competed in moots and helped develop course websites for mining law as a research assistant.
Eric was born and raised in Hamilton and is proud to be articling with a firm that has a long history and strong reputation in his hometown. When he’s not at the office, Eric enjoys gaming and spending time outdoors or with family and friends.
