    Client Comments

    "Frank has a comprehensive knowledge of the law on insurance companies, and I can count on him to provide a timely response that reflects both the legal considerations and a pragmatic perspective."
    - Jim Harvey
    Allstate Insurance Company of Canada
    "Frank not only has an excellent legal mind and working knowledge of the mining and exploration business, but he also has such a pragmatic approach to problem solving that he has become an important asset to our team at Cornerstone. He is very attentive to our needs and delivers on or before schedule. His upbeat nature and friendly personality make it a pleasure to deal with him."
    - Glen McKay
    Cornerstone Capital Resources Inc.
    "Frank was counsel to a public company I managed. Thanks, in part, to his engineering background, he was very effective in our technological context. More generally, his engaging demeanor would invariably provide a calming influence in negotiations and pave the way for his remarkable sagacity to find common ground for agreement. He is a man of great intellect and humanity. "
    - Kim Aagaard
    Toron Capital Markets Inc.
    "I have known Mr. Palmay for seven years and I am very impressed with his wide range of knowledge. He is an excellent lawyer and strategist, and he understands technical/engineering issues. In addition, his knowledge of history is quite amazing. His approach to problem solving is very much based on logic, integrity, and objective ethical values. His timely and well-focused work puts him above others in the same field. I would recommend him to anyone as a lawyer!"
    - Tibor Kokai
    Halcrow Yolles
    "I have been working with Frank Palmay since 1997. Certainly both Frank and the firm have met all expectations and obligations. Frank, however, goes beyond the call of duty. He is responsive, patient, and approachable. All levels of staff within the organization have comfortably interacted with Frank. I cannot say the same for a lot of lawyers. Frank also communicates in plain language so that he is clearly understood. Thanks for this opportunity."
    - Camille Orridge
    Toronto Community Care Access Centre
    "I have benefited from the advice of Frank Palmay for a wide variety of legal and general business issues for over 25 years. While his technical competence on all legal matters is exceptionally high, he is unparalleled in strategic planning, whether at the early stage of structuring a new business relationship, or in the resolution of disputes. There is no better negotiator to have on your team during a dispute, and no better advisor to clearly outline the options, and advise on how to achieve the best result for the least cost. He always blends his legal brilliance with exceptional common sense to reach the best possible solution."
    - Brian St. John
    Tridacna Investments Ltd.
    "He is an excellent attorney with outstanding subject matter knowledge in the area of insurance compliance. In addition to having excellent technical knowledge, he works well with appropriate authorities to obtain needed end results. He is an attorney with excellent subject matter knowledge and experience in the area of insurance compliance and regulation. He also has excellent relationships with compliance authorities based on longstanding work and a solid reputation "
