Paola Beci Gjata


Paola obtained her Juris Doctor specializing in International Trade Law from Bond University in the Fall of 2015. She completed her Practical Legal Training (PLTs) – equivalent to articles – at a prominent firm in Brisbane, Australia specializing in Intellectual Property and Immigration. In the Spring of 2017, Paola was admitted to the Supreme Court of Queensland as a Solicitor.

While completing her NCA requirements, Paola served as Senior Advisor to the former Minister of International Trade and Ontario’s Chief Negotiator, advising the provincial government on the renegotiation of the NAFTA 2.0

Before joining Pulver on Condos, Paola articled at a prominent real estate firm in Mississauga. Even though Real Estate runs in the family, Paola fell in love with Condominium Law after purchasing her first property in North York through an assignment sale. This led to Paola serving on the Board of Directors – little did she know that this would be impetus to her legal career. The first-hand experience taught her quite a lot about the industry and what directors – and owners alike – want from their lawyers.
