Carmen’s practice focuses on trial litigation, out-of-court dispute resolution, and litigation prevention. Outside of litigation, Carmen advises corporate clients in the areas of corporate governance, employment relations, and regulatory compliance. Clients include individuals who find themselves embroiled in a lawsuit for the first time, start-ups, small businesses, and sophisticated entities involved in complex proceedings.

Always mindful of her clients’ goals, Carmen approaches legal problems with creativity and perseverance.  Her practice often requires quick intervention, whether due to short bankruptcy deadlines or the imminent expiry of a limitation period.  An innovation enthusiast, she embraces technology wherever possible.

During her Law studies in the B.C.L. / LL.B. combined program at McGill University, Carmen received the J.S.D. Tory Writing Award for an essay analysing the possibility of recognizing economic rights under the Canadian Charter. She volunteered for the McGill Legal Information Clinic and for the Student Advocacy program, which provides full representation services in disputes within the university. As a student advocate, Carmen received the Director’s Award for her involvement in two cases, one concerning constitutional and electoral law and the other being a student’s academic grievance. A graduate of Foreign Languages studies, she speaks five languages fluently and was selected as a bilingual editor for the McGill Law Journal. Before Law, Carmen pursued graduate studies in comparative literature (French and German), during which she became a recipient of the Governor General’s Gold Medal.

In her spare time, Carmen takes whistling lessons from her parrots and tries vainly to instill in them an appreciation for community standards of reasonable conduct.
