Harry Munro was born in Ross-shire, Scotland. The second son of the Highland Chief of the Clan Munro, Harry packed up his kilt and left his ancestral home at age 18 in search of his destiny in the New World.
It was a circuitous route that landed him at Mac, Mac & Mac more than 20 years ago. Arriving first at St. Francis Xavier University, Harry graduated from his favoured alma mater with a degree in Business Administration. Upon graduation, he spent two years in the head office of a major life insurer. Breaking rank from the corporate ladder, Harry chose to return to academia and distinguished himself with a law degree from the University of Western Ontario in 1981.
Following graduation, Harry Munro migrated back to New Scotland, better known as Nova Scotia. After articling with a prominent Halifax law firm, Harry, like so many Scots before him, found himself drawn to the Highland hills of Pictou and Antigonish Counties, where he claims the pride and tradition of Scottish heritage is more alive than in Scotland itself.
Harry Munro counsels Mac, Mac & Mac clients on the legal niceties of private law, with a primary focus on wills, trusts, estate planning and probate. However, he brings to this practice over thirty years of extensive experience in the areas of corporate commercial and real estate law which gives him a unique ability to advise on the most complex of area of succession planning. His expertise in matters of financial planning is reflected in a variety of responsibilities he has accepted, including as an outside Director of the Sobeys Inc. Pension Plan. His position as past Chair of the Board of Governors of Kings-Edgehill, one of Canada's oldest and most prestigious private schools, is a further reflection of the high esteem in which his leadership skills are held by those who are themselves leaders in our Province.
Harry Munro's list of community volunteer services reflects the Mac, Mac & Mac culture of commitment to the communities we serve. He has served as Chair of the United Way, President of the New Glasgow Rotary Club, Chair of the Aberdeen Hospital Foundation, President of the Little Harbour Community Centre, President of the Festival of the Tartans Highland Games and volunteer legal advisor to a variety of community groups, including Boy Scouts, Family Services, and others.
When not leading our Wills, Estates and Trusts Group or volunteering his services to his community, Harry can be found long distance running, sailing, scuba diving, skiing or chasing porcupines from his woodlots. In all, he is a lawyer, community volunteer and committed family man who exemplifies the lifestyle choices that distinguish the lawyers of Mac, Mac & Mac.
