We are pleased to welcome Graham Parkinson as a new member to SCCC

Miller Thimson Logo

Graham Parkinson is a corporate commercial lawyer with Miller Thomson, practicing primarily out of the Kitchener-Waterloo office.

Graham’s connection with the Nordic countries began when in high school he participated in a Rotary international exchange program and lived for one year in a small town in Norway.  During law school at Queen’s University, Graham had an opportunity to use some of his language skills and worked as a research assistant to Prof. Kathleen Lahey on a project concerning Sweden’s use of tax policy to further gender equality.  After receiving a scholarship from the Swedish Women’s Educational Association, Toronto, Graham spent the fall of 2013 studying international commercial arbitration and European law at Uppsala University.

Graham is excited to get involved with the Swedish Canadian Chamber of Commerce as a means of maintaining his connection with Sweden and helping to strengthen the relationship between the two countries.

Member profile: Artem Barsukov

Artem Barsukov practices business law at Bennett Jones with experience in all major areas of corporate law, including dispute resolution through international commercial arbitration. His exposure to multiple legal areas — a rarity in an increasingly specialized profession — makes him an extremely versatile lawyer, able to offer advice on all types of issues facing Swedish businesses in Canada.

Artem has an intense passion for all things Swedish. An avid fan of Saab cars since the tender age of five, and having grown up reading Emil i Lönneberga, he went on to learn Swedish at the University of Alberta and spent a semester studying international business at the Uppsala University.  Clearly, this was not enough Sweden for him, as Artem went on to return several times, spending almost a year in Sweden overall. Artem has business proficiency in both spoken and written Swedish. He maintains it on a daily basis by listening to live feeds of Sveriges Radio on his daily commute to the office and reading Dagens Industri during his free time.

With his knowledge of Swedish language and culture, Artem can act as a link between your Swedish business and the vast expertise and resources Bennett Jones has to offer. If you need a trusted business advisor who can — literally — speak your language, understand your unique business needs and philosophy, or effectively represent you in negotiations involving Swedish counterparts, look no further.

Artem is admitted to practice in both Ontario and Alberta.
