Phil Tremblay was a remarkable Manager. He was my first employer who gave me a chance working in immigration law. Phil embarked professionalism, passion and dedication in all his work. He is someone that is inspiring and motivates his employees.
Phil was not only meticulous but very aware of all the details involved with each case and the time sensitivity required to carry out each mandate. His clients were treated with sensitivity and given regular status updates in order to alleviate stress so they could carry out their work and plan accordingly. Knowledgeable, detailed and solid work.
"I had the pleasure of working with Phil when he was the Practice Leader for Fragomen. He was an innovative and inspiring leader who took every opportunity to engage his employees. He took an active role in conflict resolution discussions and his open-door policy made it easy for his employees to address all issues in an effective manner. His insight, dedication and integrity are second to none. He is one of those rare coaches who are both logical and creative and I acquired a great wealth of legal and business knowledge due to his effective mentoring style."
Phil is a hard-working, smart, able to digest and interpret vasts amount of legal information to serve the needs of his customers. He is very accomodating and a pleasure to work with. A true professional
PT is an ingenious country leader who led the practice to great success. Not only is he a creative, charismatic leader, he was a great boss who was always available when you needed advice. He is talented with a wealth of knowledge and provide the best service to his clients.
I had the pleasure of knowing Phil while I was working at Morgan Stanley as VP HR. Morgan Stanley hires many employees internationally and Phil has been helpful in assisting me with the complicated procedures and paperwork in order to ensure that all was done legally and clean. I would recommend Phil at all time.
I worked under Philip's supervision for over a year while he was the Team Leader at Fragomen (Canada). I have been consistently impressed by both Philip's attitude towards his work and his performance on the job. His interpersonal and communication skills have allowed him to develop productive working relationships with both our clients and our staff. Philip has excellent listening and interviewing skills. Philip also possesses solid bilingual writing skills which have enabled him to compose quality correspondence. He also has the analytical skills to diagnose problems and devise viable solutions. His ability to remain unflustered during peek priods proved his ability to work well under pressure.

J’ai eu l’occasion de d’apprécier le travail et le professionnalisme de Philippe Tremblay alors qu’il travaillait chez Lessard Tremblay Avocats au Canada. Il est notamment intervenu à Paris à plusieurs reprises lors de conférences sur la mobilité internationale où il a animé des séminaires et ateliers sur les procédures et statuts d’expatriation. C’est avec enthousiasme que je recommande Philippe Tremblay à tous ceux qui souhaiteraient faire appel à ses services
I had the privilege of working with Philippe at a time where the company was experiencing a huge amount of growth. It was a high volume, high stress environment. Philippe was determined and focused to succeed which reflected positively to the staff. Through his leadership, we all worked very hard to make the business successful. Employees always felt Philippe was approachable and generally cared about them and the company's future. Philippe is a manager who naturally acts as an inspiring mentor for the whole staff. Philippe exhibits strong interpersonal skills and a unique capacity for empathy. These qualities translated in his ability to motivate the team to care about their work and be invested in the company’s success. Philippe is the go-to person for conflict resolution and problem solving; he is able to diffuse tension and induce compromising. Though he’s never one to draw attention to himself, his positive attitude and the respect others feel toward him is evident. It would be an honour to work with Philippe again in the future! I wish him all the best!
Philippe is one of the few lawyers who have fulfilled our business needs rather than just being a lawyer. We engaged Philippe last year to facilitate work visa to our employees in Canada. This was time sensitive in nature and we needed someone trustworthy and I am glad, we made the right choice. He is a fun person to work with, expert in his field, meticulous, a great captain and easy accessible when you need him. It would have been very difficult for us to work in Canada without his advice and great work from his team. We are looking to expand more business ties with him. All the best !!
Working with Phil at Fragomen was one of the best things in my professional career. He provided guidance and insight into the world of Corporate Immigration. His management style and professionalism made Fragomen a great place to work. During times of large case volume, Phil always had the ability to manage the anxiety level in the office and keep staff upbeat under high stress circumstances. He was always fair in his decisions and mediated issues within the office efficiently. Phil's knowledge of business immigration and creative thinking is a large part of why mobility specialists, human resources, directors, and other executive positions always turn to him for advice. He is a great leader and mentor in the business immigration field
I had the privilege to work for Phil at Emigra Canada for 8 months. Personally, I have a unique perspective on Phil's capabilities and merit because I was with Emigra prior to Phil's arrival and I witnessed the improvements that he brought and it was truly amazing. He created a positive working environment for the entire office, his knowledge and personality made him the ideal mentor and leader of our team. With Phil as our Country Manager, our efficiency went up and our work volume increased. My time with Phil was nothing but positive and I believe that he would be a valuable addition to any work environment.
I had the privilege of working with Philip at Fragomen Canada for 2 years, while he was Country Leader. Philip was a fantastic manager and boss. Not only was he able to ease the stresses of immigration law and a growing practice, he instilled a sense of team within the office. His extensive immigration expertise also enabled him to drive the team and act as a mentor not only to me but many of my colleagues. His charisma and outgoing personality made him approachable to staff and clients alike. I wish nothing but the best for Philip and hope to have the opportunity to work with him again in the future

New business and a new client can be a challenge, at least, until a relationship develops. Philippe made it so easy...It is a dream to work with him, and, it is always a pleasure to be of service,
While at Perot Systems , I had the pleasure of having Phil work on our Immigration matters in Canada. Phil is is very proactive, highly knowledgeable, and extremely personable.

He led with fantastic energy, in-depth knowledge of immigration and business practices, and best of all an amazing sense of humour. I wish nothing but the best for Philippe in all his future endeavours!
Phil was a highly committed, efficient and knowledgeable team leader, supervising a sizeable group of mobility professionals. The Canadian branch of the organization's operations flourished under his leadership and he could be consistently counted on at all times, particularly when emergencies arose.
I had the wonderful privilege of working with Phil when he was a Fragomen here in Toronto. Phil was given the difficult task of very quickly finding new premises for his company in the financial core of downtown Toronto. CBRE was acting as their real estate advisor and Phil was entrusted with moving the company, overseeing the selection of the real estate, the construction of the premises, and the selection of the furniture all in less than 12 weeks.. It was a very compact process where you needed to be able to analyze the scenario, make quick decisions and stick by them. Philip’s sense of humour and ability to work well with others on his team were great assets under the immense time constraints we were all under. He even found time to play the greatest April’s fool’s joke on me that to this date no one has rivaled. I would highly recommend Phillip as a client and a professional to work with. The experience was rewarding on all fronts.
I worked closely with Philippe in 2009-2010 while he was the Practice Leader of Fragomen Canada Co., the Canadian office of a global immigration law firm. I observed first-hand as Philippe succeeded in growing the practice during a period when many businesses were struggling through the economic downturn. I believe he achieved this growth through: dedication to client service; a highly effective management style; and smart, strategic thinking applied to the operation of the practice, as well as to his practice of law in general. I like to believe that I have picked up some of his tricks along the way!
Philippe a une bonne connaissance du domaine des TI, il est très orienté client et prend le temps de comprendre le contexte et situation avant d'offrir des solutions. Au niveau du développement des affaires et relation client, Philippe maitrise très bien ce rôle. J'ai travaillé avec Philippe via différentes firmes et son approche ouverte et dédiée est toujours présente.
I had the chance to work with Philippe on several clients; he's very effective, practical and reliable. We also invite Philippe to lecture at our Canadian PwC Tax conference in 2010
I am pleased to recommend Philippe. Philippe is an expert in his field. No waste of time, just plain efficiency! Being myself a business attorney, I did want a someone that knows his Immigration law inside and out. Also , I needed someone with a keen practical sense for any recommendations. He has it all! Thank you Philippe.
