Mitchell Singer

Mitchell is an Associate Lawyer in Hummingbird LLP’s new Family Business Enterprise group with a focus on assisting clients with a wide range of family and business issues, including Tax and Estate Planning, Shareholders’ agreements, re-organizations, family business succession planning, Wills and Estates, corporate and commercial law and other matters relating to the operation and succession of privately owned businesses.  Mitchell is particularly conscious of the interaction between family dynamics and the ownership and operation of privately owned businesses.

After his call to the Bar in 2000, Mitchell spent the first 20 years of his legal career in the life insurance industry.  He worked his way up through several insurers (National Life and Canada Life) before eventually becoming the AVP of Tax and Estate Planning at Transamerica Life Canada and AEGON Canada where he headed both the sales and marketing functions as they relate to Tax and Estate planning while leading a team of professionals across the country.  Mitchell then spent several years working in sales with, among other companies, CIBC Wood Gundy where he was a tax and estate planning consultant.

Mitchell is excited to be returning to private practice where he brings his expertise in both law and business to a new group of clients.  Mitchell wants to work with you to make sure that you can keep more of what you have worked so hard to create!
