Elliott Bursey is building a general practice in our St. John’s office, with a keen interest in litigation and environmental matters. This includes working with our ALT practice group, where Elliott embraces the opportunity to assist entrepreneurs and start-ups.
Prior to obtaining his Juris Doctor from the Dalhousie University Schulich School of Law in 2018, Elliott completed his Masters in Applied Social Psychology from Memorial University. This experience, combined with his innovative approach to problem solving, are great assets in delivering positive outcomes for our clients.
Throughout law school, Elliott volunteered at the Legal Information Society of Nova Scotia where his exposure to diverse legal matters strengthened his dedication to help clients and deliver results as efficiently as possible. Elliott began his legal career with Cox & Palmer in 2017 as an articling clerk; and was called to the Bar in Newfoundland and Labrador in February, 2019. In 2020, Elliott joined the Board of Directors for Wonderbolt Productions Inc. where he lends his training, expertise, and judgement skills to the arts community.
Elliott is an avid sports enthusiast who plays competitive volleyball, football, and softball. He loyally cheers for ‘his’ Toronto Blue Jays, Toronto Raptors and Cincinnati Bengals.
