Allister McGillivray

Allister started with Petrone & Partners as a placement student in 2017. After obtaining his Juris Doctor degree at Lakehead University's Bora Laskin Faculty of Law, he returned to the firm to complete his Articles. Following his call to the bar in July of 2019, we are excited to welcome him onboard as our newest Associate. Born and raised in Toronto, Allister completed French immersion before pursing a joint-honours degree in Environment and Resource Studies and Economics at the University of Waterloo. While originally hailing from Southern Ontario, Allister is no stranger to the North. As a teenager he spent many of his summers canoeing around Northern Ontario and later guided children along many of the same routes as a camp counsellor. Allister has enthusiastically embraced Thunder Bay as his permanent residence. Passionate about making a difference in his community, Allister has served as Vice-President External for the Lakehead University Law Student’s Society, has worked as a Legal Research Assistant, and has a year of experience working as a Caseworker at Lakehead University Community Legal Services. Allister has experience arguing Landlord and Tenant Board applications, handling Small Claims Court matters, and has already won an appeal before the Ontario Court of Justice. Allister's focus is on civil litigation (contract disputes, landlord and tenant issues, small claims court matters, debt collections, property claims and real estate disputes).
