As Managing Partner, Tricia will oversee the day-to-day firm operations, including over 25 lawyers and legal professionals. Tricia joined Simplex in 2020 as Senior Legal Counsel and was promoted to Associate Managing Partner in 2021. Tricia’s practice focuses on general commercial, regulatory, and Indigenous law primarily in the energy sector. Prior to joining Simplex, Tricia was Associate General Counsel at a large midstream company in Calgary.
Founded in 2012 by Martine Boucher and Geoff Best, Simplex is virtual by design with a technology-centric, in-house orientation and low-overhead model. Nearly all the firm’s lawyers were in-house prior to joining Simplex.
"I am excited to lead the firm and am committed to the success of our team and our clients,” Chrzanowski said. “The legal landscape in Canada continues to evolve, and in-house legal teams are looking for more efficient ways to deliver legal services, from utilizing lower-cost resourcing, to more flexible solutions beyond the traditional in-house and law firm models. We are built to serve those needs.”
Tricia will work alongside Martine Boucher, Chairwoman and Founding Partner of Simplex. Martine started Simplex with a vision to innovate how legal services are delivered in Canada. “While this change in leadership at Simplex will generate new ideas, some things will never change,” Boucher said. “Simplex remains dedicated to its core principles, including delivering unparalleled client service in a practical, cost-effective, and flexible manner. Tricia and the team have seen tremendous momentum and growth in 2022, and I’m excited to see her contributions recognized. My new role will in turn allow me to focus on connecting with clients throughout the country, to find alliances to complement our service offerings, and continue to build practical solutions to support our clients.”
