Ingenuity Counsel Relocates, Creates Cross Border Legal Hub


American legal expertise moves into the heart of Tecumseh

Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada, October 3, 2019Ingenuity Counsel, a cross border U.S. law firm, moves to join Halliwill Seguin LLP, an independent Ontario law firm, at 1222 Lesperance Road in Tecumseh, Ontario.  This co-location of firms creates a cross border legal hub for individuals and businesses in Windsor-Essex County and beyond.  The new office is in a beautiful historic building in the heart of the Town of Tecumseh Business Improvement Area.     

After developing his cross border tax & law practice over the past five years in the St. Clair Beach area, American lawyer and founder of Ingenuity Counsel, Michael Kennedy couldn’t resist the opportunity to relocate to the growing business district and combine forces with two of the region’s top business & real estate lawyers: David Halliwill and Barton Seguin.  

“With the presence of Halliwill Seguin LLP, our clients will have access to both U.S. and Ontario legal services under one roof,” said Michael Kennedy, founder of Ingenuity Counsel. “Our clients consistently have a need for Ontario legal work. Now, clients will neither have to explain the complexity of their cross border legal needs twice nor go searching on their own for the right experts to address them.” 

“We are thrilled to have an attorney with Michael Kennedy’s experience and abilities in the same building. Having access to an experienced American lawyer in the same building with our firm will be invaluable to our clients currently doing business in the U.S. and those considering the same,” says David Halliwill.
