Samantha is a litigation lawyer and the lone (but not lonely!) associate at Spark LLP.
As a young Canadian transplant reared in Southern Florida, Samantha’s father often reminded her, while in the midst of an argument, that she would make a good lawyer. Following his advice (which, in retrospect, may not actually have been intended as advice), she completed her undergraduate education at the University of Miami and graciously sacrificed the American sunshine for the storied halls of Osgoode Hall Law School, from which she graduated in 2012.
Samantha spent the first four years of her career at two boutique litigation firms, soaking up as much knowledge and experience as possible in commercial, insurance defence, and class action litigation. She has appeared in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice, Federal Court and Federal Court of Appeal.
While learning the ins and outs of litigation over the past few years, Samantha has consistently sought out new ways of providing legal services to clients, and it was this proclivity towards improving the practice of law both for clients and for lawyers which led her to join Spark LLP.
Samantha brings a sunny disposition (straight from Florida) along with tenacious fervor to Spark LLP’s litigation practice, collaborating with clients to recognise, minimise, and manage litigation risk and to identify and implement common-sense solutions to disputes.
