MacAvoy on the future of the firm, “The Halifax market is undergoing unprecedented change in the composition of its regional economy, its demography, and its physical infrastructure. To keep pace with the change, we are very pleased to add James and his global perspective, keeping the firm and our clients in stride with the evolution of our market.”
