Zachary Seymour, Director and Secretary
Originally from the hamlet of Granum, Alberta, Zach holds a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Calgary and a Juris Doctor from the University of Victoria. A senior associate lawyer at Borden Ladner Gervais LLP, Zach’s practice focuses on complex corporate commercial litigation and arbitration, with an emphasis on construction and intellectual property disputes. As Secretary of the Board of Directors, Zach is custodian of all important records, including the organization’s by-laws and incorporation documents.
Zach joined MitoCanada as part of his commitment to help those suffering from rare, under-diagnosed medical conditions. Two of Zach’s immediate family members suffer from mitochondrial disease, and Zach himself is a brain tumour survivor. Zach hopes to use his platform as a litigation lawyer and his unique background to advocate for others.
In his downtime, Zach enjoys cooking, cycling, all things basketball, and walking his dog, Maisey.
