With her practice focused exclusively on Corporate and Commercial law, Samantha has been involved in commercial transactions in both the for-profit and not-for-profit sectors. She has assisted clients in setting up, restructuring, buying and selling various commercial organizations, negotiating and drafting shareholder and partnership agreements, and structuring complex financing arrangements.
Samantha has also been involved in a number of complex commercial disputes dealing with a wide array of legal issues including contract interpretation, shareholder disputes, fraud and misappropriation of funds. Her exposure to these complex legal disputes now provides the backdrop to Samantha’s corporate commercial practice. Having debated these legal issues in the courtroom and understanding the way the court system works, Samantha is uniquely equipped to keep her clients out of the courtroom when negotiating and papering commercial transactions.
Samantha takes a no-nonsense, efficient path to getting the best results for her clients. She believes that clients have the right to a well-designed approach to the management of their legal matters, as well as innovative solutions that best meet their interests and needs. Samantha consistently delivers on this by spending time to fully appreciate her clients’ concerns, strategically planning on their behalf, and developing a framework to achieve creative resolutions.
Samantha is actively involved in several social causes. She is a Member of the Board of Directors of the Community Head Injury Resources Services (CHIRS) and a researcher and editor with the 160 Girls Program in association with The Equality Effect.
While at Osgoode Hall Law School, Samantha was one of 6
