To say that 2014 has been a busy year for Fox Law in Peterborough would be an understatement. The firm was established more than 40 years ago by Bill Fox, who still practices as much as ever. Recently, it absorbed the practice of a newly retired local lawyer and it has brought in two new lawyers: Nicole Truman and Ross Pryde.
Ross Pryde, who is moving to Peterborough in August, was born and raised in Aylmer, Ont. He grew up the son of a GM dealership owner, learning the ins and outs of a small business and the importance of customer service. He received his Honours Business Administration degree from the prestigious Richard Ivey School of Business. After his undergrad studies, he moved to Toronto and worked in various capacities for a few of the city’s professional sports franchises, including the Toronto Maple Leafs.
When the 2004 NHL lockout was on the horizon, he saw the writing on the wall and headed for law school in Ottawa. After law school, he served his articling term and practiced as a lawyer in Port Perry.
The move to Peterborough from the community of Columbus, Ont., where he is currently commuting from, will be a great chance for Ross to settle down. Come August, he will be a home owner in our great city, and in September will be marrying his fiancée Jane. The choice to come to Peterborough to practice was made easier by the size of our community, diverse people, and an overall feeling of it being just right.
Ross specializes in quite a few different areas of law, including:
• Business Law – focusing on incorporations, succession planning, and family trust
• Estate Planning – advising clients regarding Wills and Powers of Attorney
• Estate Administration – working with Trustees in dealing with estates
• Real Estate – the buying and selling of residential and commercial properties along with planning applications.
For more than 40 years, Bill Fox has specialized in Business Law, which has made the transition for Ross an easier one coming from the same background. Bill acts for more than 500 companies in and around Peterborough, and is known for his integrity and humility, as well as being a people person. Ross’s goal is to transition smoothly into the firm and take on the same characteristics to grow his practice and provide the best possible legal help to his clients.
Note: This is the first of a 3-part series on Fox Law in Peterborough.
