Brendan Peters is an articling student in our Ottawa office. He has recently completed his Juris Doctor at Dalhousie University.
Brendan obtained his M.Sc. in Organic Chemistry from the University of Toronto where he was awarded the NSERC Canada Graduate Scholarship. Brendan’s thesis titled, “Three, Two, One: Three New C–C Bonds, Two C–H Activations, One Pot. A Highly Efficient Palladium-catalyzed Domino Reaction of Aryl Iodides and Aryl Bromides” was completed in the lab of Dr. Mark Lautens at the University of Toronto.
Brendan completed a B.Sc. in Chemistry (Honours) from Dalhousie University where he was a two-time recipient of the NSERC Undergraduate Student Research Award.
