Locicero Legal PC is a boutique law firm focussed on serving entrepreneurs and small businesses with their corporate, commercial, contracts, and estate planning needs.

 

We believe legal services should be a holistic experience that includes not only the important laws, strategies and procedures, but also includes a consideration of your deeper emotions, intentions, and soul purpose.

 

While most lawyers try to take the emotion out of their services,

we believe that understanding and integrating your deeper motivations and how you feel while engaging with the law is central to providing a service that makes you feel in the driver's seat. 

 

We also strongly believe in the intersection between education and prevention and our goal is to ensure you feel empowered with all of the information you need to make important legal decisions that affect your life and business.

A bit about Vanessa

 

Vanessa Locicero is the founder and managing partner of Locicero Legal PC, a boutique law firm located in Collingwood, Ontario, focussed on serving entrepreneurs and small businesses with their corporate law, commercial law, contracts, and estate planning needs.

Whether you are in start-up mode, or are in the growth or scale phases of your business, Vanessa can help you navigate any legal landscape including:

  • Incorporation;
  • Corporate restructuring;
  • Legal audits;
  • Contract review, drafting and negotiation;
  • Commercial Leases;
  • Wills and Powers of Attorney; and
  • Corporate succession planning.

 

 

Vanessa started her legal career as a commercial litigator, advocating for clients who found themselves in the trickiest of legal situations due to lack of understanding about the importance of planning ahead and securing yourself legally.

After moving into a broader civil litigation practice and suing people and businesses when things went wrong for a few years, Vanessa decided to focus her practice on making sure the work she was doing helps her clients avoid getting into lawsuits in the first place. 

Her experience as a litigator has made her current practice as a solicitor more informed with the litigation risks that are out there at all times. She would say she's a better lawyer for her clients today because she brings a litigator's perspective to the table when ensuring you're legally secured.

Your invoice may also sometimes include "Disbursements" which are monies that the firm pays out on your behalf (i.e. to the government for certain registrations) which you pay us back for.
