Listen now
Description
Leena Yousefi wins 90% of her cases. But for her, winning isn't everything. For a profession that isn't typically associated with innovation or known for rapid growth, her firm stands apart. She approaches everything in law with heart and soul. And from how she approaches her clients to who she hires, it works. The founder of YLaw is one of the top 25 lawyers in the country. Her firm has seen its revenue grow by 331% in the last three years, making it one of the fastest growing companies in Canada. She does it all from a place of empathy, but that empathy comes from a tough past and a lot of personal growth.
