DS Lawyers is pleased to announce that Xiao Wen Zhang has successfully completed her articling term at our Montréal office in 2022 and has been called to the Quebec Bar. She has accepted to join the corporate law team.
Xiao’s practice focuses primarily on transactional law, mergers and acquisitions, corporate finance, and commercial and real estate law.
“I’m very happy to be part of the DS Lawyers team. Its personalized, client-focused approach is what drew me to the firm. I’m excited to help the Montréal group build relationships with new clients locally and internationally, as I am actively involved with the Chinese community as well’’.
While at university, Xiao Wen completed a clerkship with a judge of the Court of Québec. She also worked on many cases for the Mile End Legal Clinic. She developed an interest in business law through her internships at a local law firm and a legal start-up company. Outside of work and study, Xiao is involved in the Montreal Chinese community as a member of the legal committee of YCPA (Young Chinese Professional Association). She is also a mentor for commerce students from Marianopolis College.
“We’re thrilled to have Xiao Wen as part of our team at DS Lawyers. Her resourcefulness and thorough understanding of corporate law, particularly in the transactional sector, along with her understanding of the business reality of the Chinese community, will benefit our clients immediately”, says Richard Laramée, managing partner of DS Lawyers in Montreal and Chair of the Board of DS Lawyers Canada.
