Erin Dand

February 28, 2017

Erin Dand is the newest addition to the Pekarsky & Co. team, joining the Calgary office as an Associate in February 2017. Prior to joining the firm, Erin practised corporate law at the Calgary office of a national law firm. Passionate about people, her move from corporate law to the recruitment world was a natural fit.

Erin grew up on a farm in Saskatchewan, where her dad still operates the family grain farm. The eldest of four kids, she has always enjoyed being around people. But after growing up in what Erin describes as “the middle of nowhere”, she was determined to see and learn about people from all around the world. She has lived in France, India, Italy, Israel and Hong Kong during her life and educational pursuits, and has enjoyed learning the intricacies of cross-cultural communication along the way.

As a former transactional lawyer in the oil & gas industry, Erin brings to the Pekarsky team an in-depth knowledge of the legal and energy industries, as well as exceptional research and analytical skills. She has a strong work ethic and strives to achieve excellence in everything that she does. She is also a member of the Law Society of Alberta, and therefore holds herself to the highest standards of integrity, honesty and professional conduct.

Erin holds a Bachelor of Commerce, High Honours in Finance with Great Distinction from the University of Saskatchewan and a Juris Doctor from Osgoode Hall Law School at York University. She actively volunteers in many areas of her church and with several professional organizations. Her professional and community endeavours were recognized when she was named one of the “Top 35 under 35” in Canada’s energy sector in the July 2016 edition of Alberta Oil magazine.

When Erin is not in the office, she can be found cycling around town, planning her next dinner party with friends, listening to swing music or wearing a fabulous hat.
