GGFL is delighted to announce that Josh Engel is our firm’s new managing partner. He is taking over from Deborah Bourchier, who has decided to leave the role to focus on working with her clients and mentoring the next generation of our firm’s leadership.

“I have been immensely proud to be the leader of such a great firm,” says Deborah. “I’m part of the third generation of partners. We are into our fourth generation so it’s important that this role of managing partner reflects and represents that new generation. It’s a good time for a change.”

Paying tribute to Deborah, Engel says his two main goals will be maintaining the relationship GGFL has with its clients and continuing to foster a caring, supportive working environment at the firm.

“For the past 73 years, GGFL has developed a great reputation in the Ottawa community,’ says Josh, “and it’s vital we maintain those deep and caring relationships with our clients and continue to build on the work of partners and staff members who have gone before.”

Josh, who has been at our firm for more than 20 years, is GGFL’s third managing partner. He and Deborah were preceded by Gerry Levitz, one of GGFL’s founding partners.
