It was a real pleasure working with Magellan Law, especially with Steve Fruitman and Sanjeev Patro. Given the complicated situation that I faced, I could not imagine it having been resolved without their dedicated efforts. I was always able connect with them no matter how late it was or regardless of whether it was the weekend. Aside from making me feel as if I was their priority, their outstanding knowledge and professionalism helped resolve my issues and move on with my life quickly. I am pleased to recommend Steve Fruitman, Sanjeev Patro and the entire Magellan team!

My husband and I had the privilege of meeting Steve Fruitman when we were going through a difficult time of figuring out how to transition the ownership of our family business from our aging father and into the hands of ourselves, the next generation running our business.
Steve was very thorough when explaining the implications of the changes we were seeking and was very patient and kind when it came to explaining the nuances of our strategic plan to our father. He emoted sensitivity and compassion and was very respectful of our father who had a difficult time letting go of a company he had built for over 30 years.
Steve also connected us with a knowledgeable accountant, and bankers that hand in hand we were able to make the transition easy for everyone involved. His relationships and connections with community partners was invaluable to us in moving forward with the changes that we were able to make possible with his leadership.
As I got to know Steve and his team, I gained an appreciation for what a full service law firm means and how they could help us as individuals and our business needs. Steve introduced us to his litigation team and his conveyancing team whom we have used extensively for other business matters.
We are now in the process of also working with his team to develop updated wills that meets the needs of our changing family, which include special needs children. Steve has worked with us tirelessly to come up with a succession plan which includes a will and financial planning to ensure that as we continue to age that our children’s futures are secure. He continues to advise us on how we can continue to meet their needs and ensure that our family business and legacy will continue to thrive under his guidance and recommendations.
I would highly recommend Steve and his team to anyone who is looking for answers that not only involve the business matter at hand, but rather from a comprehensive, collaborative approach that encompasses all facets of one’s personal and business needs.

Steven Fruitman has represented our company for several years and we have always found him to be an invaluable contributor to our management decision-making process whenever we have needed to call upon his professional input. In challenging situations you need to be able to count on your legal advice, and we have always had the utmost confidence in Steven and his abilities. He’s also a nice guy! We would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

Steve Fruitman is a refreshingly valuable contributor to our corporate initiatives and an efficient and thorough professional in all his responsibilities, with a vigilant “businessman’s” eye on both the calendar and the ultimate financial impact of his actions. He is an “above and beyond” kind of guy, one with a dead certainty of execution and delivery, one with no question of ultimate value on the team. I believe Steve is the quintessential legal professional and embodies the highest ideals of his chosen field.
I would not hesitate to recommend Steve to assist anyone with their legal needs. I have worked with Steve in the past to assist mutual clients with reorganizations and drafting contracts. He strives to always make himself reachable and available, and no matter what the issue, you feel like you are at the top of his list. He is meticulous, and extremely dedicated (his wife is an absolute saint to support the long hours that he works!).
Steve’s not just your lawyer, he is immediately your friend – I see that he cares personally about each and every one of his clients and you can count on him to do what is in your best interest and provide a common-sense solution. This is a relationship for life – guaranteed.

When we decided that Steve Fruitman was going to be part of our Corporate Advisory Board with our company, and essentially our calling card to any potential challenges and opportunities that arose, we researched many attorney’s before discovering the unique service of Steve Fruitman. We were not only searching for someone that could give us sound legal advice, but also a business mentor and advisor that could help us with any challenging issues or opportunities that came along. The quality of work and attention to detail Steve Fruitman has displayed throughout the entire time our company has been established, has been extremely impressive… We feel extremely fortunate to have found Steve Fruitman, and we are confident that with his service he will give us a distinct advantage over our competitors. It has been a great partnership over the last 4 years and we look forward to maintaining a positive and productive relationship in the future with Steve Fruitman as our company grows and evolves.
Needless to say, I highly recommend Steve Fruitman to be part of your Corporate Team.
If you are looking for someone who will go that extra mile for you, Steve Fruitman is that person. I have been working with Steve since 2009 and he is someone I constantly turn to for help and advice. Often times business owners are scared to seek the advice of a lawyer. But with Steve, it’s different. Steve always looks way beyond the “law” and helps me consider all the factors involved in making certain decisions. It may sound odd, but I consider my lawyer a true friend and confidante. Steve is the last corporate lawyer you will ever need to search for.
