As Managing Partner, Jarvis Sheridan provides day-to-day guidance to his fellow lawyers and staff at O’Connor MacLeod Hanna LLP, and has been an integral part of the growth and success of the Halton Region’s largest law firm. He does this while maintaining a respected practice in Business and Income Tax law. Since articling at the firm more than three decades ago, Jarvis has played an ever-increasing role in guiding it to the enviable position it enjoys today.
Developing a group that “plays well together” has been a priority for Jarvis from the beginning. Friendly, open, nurturing relationships prevail at the firm with many starting their career here and remaining for years. It’s just as Jarvis wanted it – highly respected professionals doing excellent work together - and having fun at the same time. It’s a culture that is very important to everyone at the firm.
Building sound relationships inside and outside of the firm has been a keystone of OMH since its inception. Many clients have been with the firm for more than thirty years and that tradition is sure to continue. The range of practice areas, combined with the breadth of talent, ensures that OMH clients will always be able to access the expertise and experience they require - without having to drive into the city or having to pay the big city price.
Jarvis Sheridan’s natural leadership skills go well beyond the confines of OMH – he’s also a true leader in the community having provided volunteer direction and support to a vast array of groups and organizations. He is as proud of those accomplishments as he is of the success of OMH.
Family, a successful career and community involvement can consume a great deal of time. But, Jarvis continues to stay on top of his game working out at the ‘Y’, paddling his outrigger canoe and cycling. He's also an unapologetic folk musician who sings in his church choir and is always ready to lead the chorus.
