Calgary/Toronto, July 24, 2023 – Simplex Legal LLP (Simplex), a national Canadian firm that provides interim legal support for business and corporate legal departments across Canada, announced today Anoop Dogra has been named Managing Partner.
Dogra will work alongside Martine Boucher, Chairperson and Founding Partner of Simplex, who will serve as a member of the firm’s advisory board. Boucher co-founded Simplex with Geoff Best in 2012 with a vision to innovate how legal services are delivered in Canada, and the firm remains dedicated to its mission of delivering unparalleled client service in a practical and flexible manner.
"I am honored to have the opportunity to lead Simplex Legal," Dogra said. "The Canadian legal industry is undergoing a significant transformation, prompting in-house legal teams to seek more efficient and adaptable solutions beyond traditional models. I will leverage my experience as a lawyer, investment banker, and entrepreneur to strategically position Simplex to deliver exceptional legal solutions to our clients. Our dedication to the success of our clients is at the forefront of our approach.”
Dogra started his legal career as a corporate and securities lawyer at the Toronto office of Blake, Cassels & Graydon LLP and served as a partner for seven years. In 2010, he was recruited to join BMO Capital Markets as a Director of Cross-Asset Solutions. In that role, he was responsible for originating and structuring innovative financial products. Recently, Dogra served as a Managing Director at 3iQ Digital Asset Management, where he managed product development and legal matters.
“I am delighted that Anoop will be leading the firm as our new Managing Partner,” Martine said. “His experiences practicing law at the highest level and working with lawyers in business roles is the perfect background to advance the firm’s mission of providing practical advice that helps clients achieve their business objectives.”
As part of the firm’s core objective to solve problems for, and deliver real value to, corporate legal departments, in May 2023, Simplex launched Simplex: Thrive Legal.
