Several years ago, when looking for a lawyer I was introduced to Steve Fruitman. One never knows how these introductions are going to go. Is it a transaction or will it be a long-term business relationship?
Magellan has helped me with personal and business situations and always has taken the time to explain things at a level that easily understandable.
Steve is truly knowledgeable and always has my best interest in mind. He is very honest, upfront and I have always felt like I was a priority.
Having Magellan working on my side, makes me realize how lucky I am to have someone with such a high level of integrity.
I highly recommend Magellan Law – Steve stays awake at night worrying so you do not have to.
I would not hesitate to recommend Magellan Law for your legal needs.
In transitioning the experience of our ever changing businesses, we seek professionals not only for their experience, but also their ability to understand our situations. Steven and Karen Fruitman and the Magellan Team are all such like-minded professionals. Our multi consortium of businesses require someone who will listen to our questions and provide answers in a timely manner. Magellan Law is that company. More than once, Steven has went the extra mile and was always there for us above and beyond our client/lawyer relationship. It is our pleasure to recommend Steven, Karen and their team as a very qualified and professional team who can handle any situation – big or small.
We have worked with Magellan, Steve Fruitman, for over 7 years now and with the complexity of our corporation and multijurisdictional issues, we couldn’t imagine working with anyone else. We have always found the Magellan group to extremely helpful and willing to work with our out outsourced accounting teams. They have been very beneficial both as a corporate partner and in dealing with family matters. They are the type of group that immediately makes you feel like your business is in the right hands. We would not hesitate to recommend Magellan to anyone.
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Steve Fruitman and the team at Magellan Law Corporation since 2012.
Over these years, Steve and his firm have efficiently attended to our day to day corporate legal needs, consistently demonstrating their strong understanding of business and business law.
More importantly though, Steve has been instrumental in helping us with the larger decisions in the business. From the beginning, Steve took the time to understand our business and to understand the people involved.
During those times when life changing/business altering decisions are being made, it’s necessary to have a calm, experienced, and wise legal expert at the table. Having that person be someone who understands your business and your family situation is key. It is evident from his work and the advice that he gives that Steve truly cares about me as a business owner.
I’ve always been impressed with Steve’s pleasant personality, his work ethic, and his ability to work with tight deadlines. Any business owner knows that having a good legal advisor is essential. Steve’s work goes far beyond “good.” We look forward to working with Steve and Magellan Law as our business continues to grow.
Four years ago, I applied for a medicinal cannabis production license in order to grow medical-grade cannabis for Health Canada. I have spent over four years dealing with Health Canada in pursuit of this production license. Anyone that has ever dealt with Health Canada in this capacity, understands the complications and resulting frustrations in working with the faceless giant. Four years after completing my application and submitting it to Health Canada, I retained Karen Fruitman’s expertise to communicate on my behalf, as I was getting nowhere when communicating with Health Canada and felt like my application was in a limbo-state.
Karen Fruitman’s excellent work resulted in my application being further examined by Health Canada because soon after her work began, I had received a devastating letter stating that Health Canada had the intent to deny me a security clearance, which is required for the licensing process. I immediately contacted Karen Fruitman and explained the dilemma.
There was absolutely no time delays on the part of Karen, she was all over it. She responded with all of the necessary information to deny all of the allegations against me that were unjustly alleged by Health Canada. In a relatively short time thereafter, I received a phone call from a Health Canada representative stating that after they received a letter from my lawyer, they were pleased to grant me a security clearance.
My dream finally came true thanks to the professional work by Karen Fruitman from Magellan Law Corporation. I would without a doubt recommend consulting Karen if one is experiencing unjust complications with Health Canada, this team has the experience to get it done right.
Thank you, Karen, from the bottom of my heart.
It was a real pleasure working with Magellan Law, especially with Steve Fruitman and Karen Fruitman. 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, Karen Fruitman and the entire Magellan team!
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.
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.
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.
I feel confident in passing clients to Steven because he is personable, knowledgeable and follows up with them in a professional manner. If your business is in need of a lawyer then I highly recommend him.
Your choice in professional support is one of the most important decisions you will make for any of your corporate matters.
Steve Fruitman and the Magellan team supported us during a very complex cross border transaction, with an integrated team of professionals. With Steve’s attention to detail and thorough understanding of our needs, he was able to bridge the gap between our professional groups.
I would strongly recommend you add the Magellan team to your professional support for your organization.
It has been nothing short of a pleasure working with Magellan Law. They’ve simplified my legal needs, are easy to reach, and in my case have operated on an expedited timeline that has proven to be very accommodating and helpful. I would absolutely recommend Magellan’s team for anyone’s corporate or individual legal needs. Five stars.
After leaving the previous law firm that I had used for 25 years (I left because ‘my’ lawyer retired from that firm, and I didn’t feel well-served after his departure) I found myself looking for a new lawyer and law firm. I was introduced to Steve by a business associate and Steve and his firm have handled all of our legal matters now since early 2019.
My sentiments echo what many other business people have mentioned in the other testimonials: Steve, Karen and their team always make us feel that our concerns are their priority, even although we know we are only one of many clients. They have looked after commercial leases and commercial tenant issues, employment matters, litigation, corporate matters, and personal matters, and lately a very significant (to us) business transaction the result of which I now have to call myself ‘ex-President’ of my most active company.
We will look forward to many more years with Steve’s firm as we will continue with our remaining business interests. We could not be more comfortable with Steve’s services, and are very grateful for his knowledge, advice and the calming demeanor which goes with it, as well as his personal integrity.
