Advancing your knowledge through continuous learning.

As part of our commitment to providing value-added services for our clients, Alexander Holburn has developed its FOCUS education program. FOCUS is devoted to providing educational content that is important to you. We understand how difficult it is to stay abreast of an ever-changing legal landscape. Therefore, our FOCUS in-house educational sessions and webinars are centred on the topics and issues you tackle day-to-day. These sessions are offered as lunch n’ learns and webinars for your convenience. Our seminars are led by our lawyers as well as by industry experts who are able to speak to topics that affect you and your business. If you are unable to attend one of our sessions, our FOCUS content can be easily accessed at a later date. If there is a topic you’d like us to explore, please email us at info@nullahbl.ca. We value your input on new program ideas and would like to hear from you.
