Celebrating 75 Years

We extend our appreciation to our valued clients, our esteemed partners, dedicated lawyers, and supportive colleagues who have believed in our vision and whose efforts have contributed to shaping Pallett Valo LLP into a prominent and highly regarded law firm in Ontario. Watch our 75th anniversary video and read more about our history and how we are celebrating this milestone.



Commitment to the Community

Pallett Valo celebrates 75 years of serving its clients and the community by partnering with the Mississauga Food Bank, a network of over 50 agencies that distribute food for over five million meals each year to vulnerable children, seniors, families, and neighbours in Mississauga.

Since its inception in 1948, Pallett Valo has supported many meaningful not-for-profit organizations, charity groups and community agencies.  The firm’s partners, lawyers and support team donate their time, resources, and talent to various causes.

75 years of dedication and achievement

Our firm remains a large full-service law firm in Ontario.  Readers of Canadian Lawyer magazine have voted Pallett Valo as one of Ontario’s Top 10 Regional Law Firms in seven consecutive surveys and The Globe and Mail ranked us one of Canada’s Best Law Firms for 2023 in the Corporate & Commercial category.

Our lawyers are consistently ranked in The Best Lawyers in Canada, recognized in the Canadian Legal Lexpert Directory, in Lexology as legal influencers, and this year our long-time partner Anne Kennedy received the Peel Law Association Lifetime Achievement Award.

Not only do our lawyers receive recognition for their achievements, but they are also leaders in the community and in the legal profession. Seven of our lawyers serve in various roles in the Ontario Bar Association and many hold leadership positions in other associations. Even those who leave the firm move on to greater things. Like Alex Ilchenko, now an Associate Judge at the Ontario Superior Court of Justice.

Managing Partner John Russo says, “Throughout the years, Pallett Valo and its lawyers have been recognized for expertise and service excellence. For this, we’d like to thank our clients, who have entrusted us to step alongside them to help grow their businesses, resolve conflicts, and provide legal advice and support in many ways.

“What better way to celebrate our 75th anniversary, than to embark on a new community project? Our latest association is with the Mississauga Food Bank. Its mission is to end hunger in Mississauga by providing and promoting access to healthy and appropriate food. We’re looking forward to partnering with them through volunteer and financial support over the next year and beyond.

“Pallett Valo’s rich history and consistent commitment to clients and the community are what set us apart. We look forward to the next 75 years of serving our clients and our community.”
