Mann Lawyers, Doris Law Office create stronger full-service firm

At a law firm where even rock stars are expected to check their egos at the door and put clients first, it can be hard to find the right talent with which to grow.

But Mann Lawyers has found the perfect fit in culture and values with the veteran team at Doris Law Office (DLO).

Mann Lawyers now has 21 lawyers covering 11 practice areas, from commercial litigation and employment, to personal injury and wills and estates.

“Since 1994, we’ve been diligently growing in a very pragmatic way,” said Mann Lawyers Partner André Martin. “We want to make sure that people who come here share our down-to-earth culture, client focus and commitment to having fun while delivering quality service.”

Mann Lawyers already has a strong corporate commercial practice that works with startup entrepreneurs, seasoned executives eyeing international growth and all else in between. James Doris and the DLO team add greater depth in Eastern Ontario’s tech sector, securities law expertise, and business lawyers like Paul Franco, who can practice in both Ontario and Quebec.

The result is a regional firm capable of providing service on par with a national firm, but in a manner that’s more nimble, flexible and affordable for growing businesses.

“We’ve expanded our reach considerably by joining Mann Lawyers, to offer our clients a variety of services under one roof instead of having to engage with external counsel or refer clients elsewhere,” said Doris.

Doris and Martin agree that ensuring clients are well-served through all their professional and personal needs is a team effort for the long term. This team approach extends to building trusted relationships with other professional services, such as accounting. 

“Our client retention is exceptionally high because we empower them and focus on their needs,” said Martin. “We have also invested heavily in succession planning, so any client can rest assured that we’ll be here for years to come.” 

Mann Lawyers will be maintaining the Somerset Street office and continuing in its existing space on Scott Street. The whole team looks forward to continuing to serve clients as it always has. To learn more, please visit
