Prior to joining Brownlee LLP in the spring of 2022, Neil Zimmerman was an in-house insurance litigation lawyer for a large Canadian insurance company.

He has taken that experience and is applying it more broadly on behalf of his clients at Brownlee. One of the things he enjoys most about litigation defence is the art of legal reasoning as well as researching and composing submissions for court.

Away from work, Neil enjoys riding his bike along Calgary’s river pathways and on the trails around Banff and Canmore. He also enjoys dining at a variety of new and different restaurants across the city.

The complexity of the law intrigues me and I enjoy the game theory and critical thinking necessary to be successful in this career.
