Natalie completed her articles with Morrison Brown Sosnovitch LLP and is a partner at the firm.   She is a litigator with over a decade of experience working with her clients to resolve disputes. 

In practice, she specializes in two distinct areas of law:

Commercial Litigation, which involves advising companies on various business issues such as breach of contract, shareholder disputes, employment and franchise disputes, real estate and leasing disputes and collections; and

Estate Litigation & Planning,  which primarily involves litigating estate matters such as guardianship applications, will challenges, passings of accounts and other various estates, trusts and power of attorney issues, but also includes estate planning such as powers of attorney, wills and trusts.

Natalie has successfully represented a broad range of clients before numerous courts, boards and tribunals including the Court of Appeal for Ontario, the Ontario Superior Court of Justice, the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario, the Canada Industrial Relations Board and the Consent and Capacity Board.

As an advocate, Natalie’s key objective is to present her clients’ position in the most compelling manner possible.  To facilitate this, she first determines the client’s business or other goals.  She then prepares thoroughly, developing a theory of the case that she uses persuasively throughout the proceedings, resulting in practical and cost effective outcomes for her clients.

Natalie’s clients appreciate her dedication to ensuring that, at all times, they are fully aware of the factors impacting the success of their case and the pros and cons of the potential courses of action available to them. They value her sound advice and recommendations with respect to achieving their objectives and bringing their matter to a conclusion.

Outside of her practice, Natalie enjoys travelling, reading and the creative process of do-it-yourself home projects.
