On November 28, 2018, Benefit Partners Inc. (“Benefit Partners” or “BPI”) announced the completion of its acquisition by People Corporation (TSX-V: PEO).

WeirFoulds represented Benefit Partners Inc. and its principals, Vic Skot, Dan Millar and Peter DiPietrantonio, with a team that included Steve Rukavina, Rochelle Perera, Carleigh Bassett, Maralynne Monteith and Daniel Wong.

BPI has earned a reputation as a ‘trusted advisor’ amongst its client base by building strong relationships, providing thoughtful advice, implementing innovative solutions and delivering superior service.
