Clément Stacey is a summer student in Gowling WLG's Toronto office.
Clément completed his legal education in Canada, France and the United Kingdom, focusing his studies on international trade law, public international law and EU law. His master of laws addressed developments in investment treaty arbitration and its effect on legal practice.
Over the past five years, Clément has worked at Gowling WLG as a business development professional advising on client opportunities in international markets. His experience in this role has provided Clément with a unique appreciation of the value lawyers can add to their clients’ projects as strategic partners able to uncover commercial opportunities and find innovative solutions to legal challenges.
Clément also obtained a certificate in the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst (RMAS) Military Leadership Development Programme (MLDP), which is designed to teach individuals leadership, teamwork and critical thinking skills. He was also a volunteer with the Norfolk Community Law Service advising clients on services available, on a pro bono basis, from immigration law to debt advice.
Outside of law, Clément is an avid soccer player. He has seen first hand how the power of the sport can bring people together and promote a good cause. In 2018, Clément organized a charity tournament in support of the International Development and Relief Foundation (IDRF). He continues to look for opportunities to use the sport as a vehicle for community engagement.
Clément will focus his summer in the firm's Business Law Department.
