A partner in Davies’ Dispute Resolution group, Julie frequently represents clients in complex, high-stakes litigation. Her clients appreciate her talent in the courtroom and her ability to plead innovative issues that have a major impact on their business. She has successfully pleaded a wide variety of cases, including an application for judicial review where the applicant sought the annulment of a government decree authorizing the extension of the Canadian Malartic Mine, one of the largest open-pit gold mines in the world; and representing two banks on class actions in connection with credit card fees.


Julie’s pro bono work has improved the way Canadian amateur athletes are supported and protected. In her representation of four sexual assault victims of their former ski coach, Julie advised her clients to reveal their identities, speak up and demand changes by sports organizations and governments. Their efforts resulted in both the Québec and the federal government making changes to prevent any form of sexual, physical and psychological abuse in sport.
