My practice is in Civil Litigation, focusing on Employment, Human Rights and Labour Law. I assist clients with a broad range of employment and labour disputes, including wrongful dismissals, human rights claims, and employee grievances. I also provide document review work to employers to resolve issues without the need for litigation.
On the commercial litigation side, I assist clients with contract and property disputes and negligence claims.
I take great pride in my ability to work collaboratively with clients and to think creatively about how to solve the matter at hand, with a focus on ensuring that issues are solved efficiently and effectively. I am a people person through and through. Connecting with and helping clients through the (often daunting) litigation process is what I love most about my role.
After completing the summer student program and my articles with the firm, I am thrilled to be back at Mann Lawyers as an associate. I have an Honours Bachelor of Arts Degree (with distinction) from Queen’s University (2018) and a Juris Doctor (cum laude) from the University of Ottawa (2022). I was called to the Ontario Bar in June 2023.
While in law school, I was a member of the Legal Writing Academy as a legal writing leader. I was a student caseworker for the University of Ottawa Community Legal Clinic in the family law department. I also volunteered with the Ticket Defence Program, where we helped houseless and street-involved people defend against provincial offences. I enjoyed working with groups that improve access to justice within the Ottawa community and working with clients to solve their legal issues both diligently and compassionately.
While I now call Ottawa home, I grew up overseas and lived in several countries throughout my childhood, including Belgium, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Indonesia and Malaysia. I graduated from high school at the International School of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I try to return to Malaysia to visit my family and pets as much as possible. My hobbies include trying new food, learning to downhill ski (COVID past time turned current obsession) and spending as much time as possible swimming in lakes during the summer.
