Brett Hodgins


I practice primarily in corporate and commercial litigation, although I have represented clients on matters as diverse as employment issues, wrongful dismissals, estate disputes, landlord tenant matters, and real estate disputes. I have appeared on behalf of clients in the Ontario Superior Court and the Small Claims Court, the Federal Court of Canada, the Federal Court of Appeal, and before various tribunals including the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario, the Landlord and Tenant Board, and the Parole Board of Canada.

I have represented a wide variety of businesses and individuals in my practice, and I am keenly aware of the stress and costs faced by clients engaging in any kind of litigation. My guiding principle in every matter is to achieve the best possible result as efficiently and expeditiously as possible so that clients can get on with their lives. 

Prior to joining Mann Lawyers I completed my articles and practiced in litigation for several years with a mid-sized Ottawa firm. In 2013 I graduated with my Bachelor of Laws (LLB), Bachelor of Civil Law (BCL), and MBA degrees from McGill University, and was called to the bar in 2014. Prior to attending McGill, I obtained my BA (Honours, with Distinction) from Queen’s University. I am a member of the Law Society of Upper Canada, the Canadian Bar Association and the County of Carleton Law Association. 

Outside of the office, I regularly participate in the annual CCLA Lawyer Play with the Great Canadian Theatre Company. I also enjoy spending time skiing, camping, biking, and canoeing with my wife and son.

If you are involved in a commercial dispute or other form of litigation, or if you simply have questions and need information, please do not hesitate to contact me.
