Biography

Julio Mena is an associate in the Montreal office of Davis LLP. His practice is focused on business immigration law, litigation and employment law.

Julio assists clients with a range of Canadian immigration matters, including work permit applications for executives, managers and specialized knowledge workers (intra-company transfers) and applications for permanent residence under the economic class and family reunification (sponsorship) programs. He gained first-hand knowledge of immigration procedures and practices by working at Citizenship and Immigration Canada and by participating in a legal research project for Pro Bono Students Canada. Before law school, he completed a professional program to become an immigration consultant.

Julio’s litigation experience includes drafting pleadings and conducting research for senior counsel in commercial matters. His employment law practice includes assisting employers with drafting and reviewing employment contracts and internal policies.

Julio obtained his LL.L. from the University of Ottawa in 2011 and expects to receive his Juris Doctor from the Universite de Montreal in 2014. At the University of Ottawa, Julio was elected Secretary of Lawyers Without Borders (University of Ottawa’s Division). While at the Universite de Montreal, he participated in the Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot Competition in Vienna, Austria in 2013.

He joined Davis LLP as a summer student in 2010 and as an associate upon his call to the Quebec Bar.

Julio speaks English, French and Spanish fluently.
