George Messih joined Devry Smith Frank LLP (DSF) in 2019 as an associate in our real estate, corporate, and estates groups.

Prior to joining DSF, George worked at a boutique law firm in Toronto, and his practice focused on commercial and residential real estate, business acquisitions, and estate planning and administration. With a client-centred approach and the ability to anticipate issues before they arise, George is a reference point to clients who rely on him for timely advice and the smooth carriage of their files.

George obtained his Bachelor`s degree in economics from McMaster University. He later travelled to the UK to study law at the University of South Wales, where he received his LL.B. During this time, he volunteered at the student legal aid clinic where he worked closely with lawyers from leading UK law firms in assisting members of the community with contract, tenancy, and various advisory matters.

A firm believer in life-long learning, George continued his professional development at Osgoode Hall Law School, where he completed the Intensive Program in Wills & Estates in April, 2018. George will also be completing the Osgoode Certificate in Health Law in April, 2020 in order to better assist his corporate clients in the health care industry.
