Davies Ward Phillips & Vineberg LLP announced that Mark Firman is a new partner with the firm’s pensions, employment and executive compensation practice.

According to the firm’s press release, Firman brings a unique blend of in-depth knowledge and perspective to the firm, having served for several years as director and legal counsel at Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan.

His familiarity with public pension funds, stemming from his extensive experience advising from both the outside and the inside, will help situate the firm as trusted advisers to this growing group of international dealmakers. Firman’s expertise extends across the full spectrum of pensions and benefits law, from the structuring and design of public and private plans and pension fund investments to the pensions and benefits aspects of corporate transactions and reorganizations.

Based in the firm’s Toronto office, Firman will join Jessica Bullock in providing strategic counsel and growing the firm’s thought leadership in this dynamic area
