Congratulations Bill and Jacques!

Elliott McCrea Hill congratulates Senior counsel William J Matthews and Associate Jacques M LeBlanc on their recent retirements from the practice of law. Bill enjoyed a long and successful career as a lawyer in Fredericton having served clients throughout eastern Canada in a wide variety of practice areas. Well-known in corporate commercial legal circles throughout New Brunswick, Bill and the team regularly assisted clients with some of the area’s most significant transactions. Jacques joined Elliott McCrea Hill in July of 2010 after practicing in the Fredericton area for more than 45 years. Jacques specialized in real estate, estate law and corporate commercial fields of practice. Jacques represented local real estate developers and homeowners alike and provided extensive experience in all legal matters pertaining to real estate and real property development..

Our team has worked closely with Bill and Jacques over the last number of months to ensure that their clients will enjoy a seamless transition to continued representation here at Elliott McCrea Hill. Partners Paul, Chipp and Steve look forward to addressing any questions past clients may have.
