Pallett Valo Appoints Lisa Sticht-Maksymec as Partner

January 8, 2024

Pallett Valo LLP, a well respected law firm recognized for excellence across Ontario, is pleased to announce that Lisa Sticht-Maksymec has become a partner effective January 1, 2024.

Lisa joined the firm in November 2010 as a member of the Wills and Estates Practice. She holds a B.A. from the University of Waterloo and an LL.B. from Queen’s University.

Her practice focuses on all aspects of traditional and complex estate and succession planning, estate administration, power of attorney and guardianship administration, estate litigation, and applications for guardianship for incapable adults. Drawing on over 20 years of experience, Lisa’s approach comprises both legal and practical solutions to matters that are inevitably very personal, sensitive and emotional.

Craig Ross, Head of Pallett Valos’ Wills, Estates and Trusts Group, says, “Lisa’s thorough understanding of all matters involving wills and estates, her passion to help people, and her compassionate and sensitive approach when dealing with clients make her stand out. Her promotion to partner is richly deserved.”
