Artist: Alan Syliboy

The Story of the Humpback Whale.

At MacGillivray Injury & Insurance Law, we are as unique as the vibrant image that greets you — a humpback whale swimming gracefully in a star-studded cosmos, a creation by renowned Mi’kmaq artist Alan Syliboy. It’s more than just a visually arresting piece of art; it’s a symbol of who we are and the values we uphold.

The humpback whale, known for its extraordinary journey across vast oceans, represents our resolve to navigate the complexities of personal injury law. Just as the humpback journeys thousands of miles, overcoming tremendous obstacles, we too relentlessly navigate the legal seas on behalf of our clients. We weather storms, navigate treacherous currents, and always keep sight of our destination: justice.

The celestial backdrop is not merely a whimsical artistic choice, it signifies our vision that transcends the conventional. It speaks of our readiness to venture into the unknown, to push boundaries, and to bring back the stars for our clients. Just as the whale moves undeterred through the cosmic ocean, we traverse the expansive legal landscape fearlessly and innovatively, illuminating the path towards resolution and recompense.

This fusion of the aquatic and the cosmic also underlines our connection to Atlantic Canada — from its sprawling oceans to the boundless, starlit skies. We are as deeply embedded in our environment as we are in our practice, fueling our commitment to serve our local community.

We extend our gratitude to Alan Syliboy, whose creativity reflects our own aspiration to think differently, to stand out, and to make a positive impact.
