Leah Tolton has joined the Advisory Board of the Alberta Business Family Institute (ABFI). For nearly 30 years, Leah has been a trusted advisor to a broad range of family businesses in Alberta. Built on the principle that family enterprise is the heart of the provincial economy, the ABFI provides knowledge and skill enhancement opportunities that foster the continued success of family-based organizations.
Leah's practice at Bennett Jones has an emphasis on providing legal services to ultra high net worth families and their companies, family-owned businesses and their owners and boards of directors in matters related to corporate governance and succession planning, corporate structuring and sophisticated corporate reorganizations. She has extensive experience with the strategic planning, risk management, mergers, acquisitions and sale transactions of family enterprises.
As a further commitment to her work with family-owned businesses, Leah obtained the designation as Family Enterprise Advisor in 2023.
The ABFI was conceived through the collaborative efforts of a group of Alberta business families, members of the Alberta School of Business at the University of Alberta, and founders of the Business Families Foundation. More details about the ABFI are available here.
