When adversity strikes, it’s important to keep calm under pressure, take a step back and put everything into perspective, says Anna Dell’Api. “Yes, the situation is real, and there will be a sense of urgency,” she says. “But we also need to be level-headed to solve the problem. Part of my job as a lawyer is to get people to understand that now is not the time to panic, and so let’s try to make the best of the situation.”
A seasoned lawyer with years of experience working in private practice and for a financial institution, Anna also brings life to a file. She is not afraid to use a little humour to make people feel comfortable and lighten up a tense atmosphere. At the same time, Anna is a firm believer that there are sometimes difficult things that need to be said. “It all depends on how you say it,” she insists.
Anna is also a creative and skilled negotiator who can apply vast experience to drafting contracts, running financial and internal investigations, and dealing with regulators.
A running enthusiast, Anna was born and raised in Florida, before moving to Montreal for to pursue her university studies.
