 Overview

Megan’s commercial litigation practice covers a wide range of areas, including contractual disputes, fraud and white collar crime, tax, competition, bankruptcy and insolvency, and regulatory compliance and defence. Within her broader commercial litigation practice, Megan has a particular focus on civil fraud recovery and defence, regulatory defence, and both civil and criminal tax litigation. She regularly represents her clients before the Superior Court of Justice, and has appeared before the Ontario Court of Justice, the Federal Court, and the Court of Appeal for Ontario.

Megan has considerable experience with trial advocacy work. Megan acted as criminal defence counsel on a complex tax evasion matter culminating in a four-week trial before the Ontario Court of Justice, in which the corporation and its principal were acquitted. As an articling student, Megan was involved in a two-week disciplinary hearing defending a regulated health professional against allegations of sexual misconduct, and a two-week trademark infringement trial before the Federal Court. Megan has also acted as lead counsel on a number of contested motions, and has experience with the defence of extraordinary remedies, including injunctive relief.

Megan obtained her dual degree in common law and civil law from the McGill University Faculty of Law. Prior to law school, Megan attended New York University, where she completed a Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy, followed by a Master’s degree in Bioethics.

Described by her colleagues as fearless, Megan is dedicated to the craft of complex litigation. She also prides herself on her sensitivity to the needs of her clients.
