Chair of Law­son Lun­dell’s tech­nol­ogy law group and co-chair of the firm’s merg­ers and ac­qui­si­tions prac­tice group, Va­lerie Mann has been rec­og­nized as one of the best lawyers in Canada in the ar­eas of merg­ers and ac­qui­si­tions, tech­nol­ogy and cor­po­rate law. She is the former man­ag­ing part­ner of Law­son Lun­dell and a two-time WXN Top 100 award win­ner.

“Get in­volved; vol­un­teer for things; let oth­ers know you are in­ter­ested.”

“Power is just an­other word for lead­er­ship, hope­fully in­spi­ra­tion, and an abil­ity and a will­ing­ness to make oth­ers around you bet­ter.”

“Re­move ‘fudgy’ phrases, such as ‘I’m not sure that I’m right but …’ from your lex­i­con and state, as con­cisely as pos­si­ble, what you want to con­vey. Then re­peat it. Too of­ten, your point of view will, in fact, be con­sid­ered but it will come out of some­one else’s mouth 10 min­utes later.”

Nom­i­nated as: Lo­ca­tion Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor, Ac­cen­ture
