During her more than 30 years as a student, an associate and, since 1997, a partner at the firm, Jessica’s practice in civil litigation and  arbitration has led her to appear at all levels of court in Ontario, as well as the courts of other provinces, at the Supreme Court of Canada and before Provincial securities commissions. An inspiring leader and extraordinary mentor, she has been tireless in her involvement in firm related matters as well as her commitment to the broader legal community.

Throughout her career, Jessica has been recognized as a leading practitioner by numerous publications including Chambers Global, The Best Lawyers in Canada, and Lexpert.   She has also been recognized by Benchmark Canada as one of Canada’s Top 25 Women in Litigation.

A frequent author and lecturer, Jessica has written extensively on procedural, evidentiary and substantive topics in her areas of expertise, including class actions, securities disclosure, directors’ and officers’ liability and contractual disputes.

We wish Jessica all the success in the world in her new appointment and career.
