Mitchell Besner, Counsel
I have attended to the needs of my clients in the areas of real estate, wills and estates and corporate law since I started practicing law. From 1988 to 1991, I worked with clients in Montreal but decided to make the move to Ottawa in 1992. Over the last decade, I have assisted physician groups, both Family Health Organizations and Family Health Teams, in structuring and organizing their medical practices. I also have the privilege of advising physicians on various legal issues to help them manage and grow their practices.
A lifelong Montreal Canadiens’ fan, I attended university in Maple Leaf and Red Wings’ territory at the University of Western Ontario where I obtained a Bachelor of Arts in political science. I then attended the University of Ottawa where I obtained common law and civil law degrees. I was called to the Quebec Bar in 1988 and to the Bar of Ontario in 1992.
I have served on the United Way of Ottawa’s Planned Giving Advisory Committee and I am the current Vice-President of Diefenbunker, Canada’s Cold War Museum.
Appreciative of the great outdoor recreation in and around Ottawa, I enjoy cycling, running and cross-country skiing. I indulge in my love of music by attending classical music concerts in which my son plays and sings as well as local festivals.
If there is something that I can help you with, please do not hesitate to contact me.
