A partner in Osler’s Litigation Practice Group, Mary is also cross-appointed to the Taxation Group. Her commercial litigation practice focuses on complex tax litigation, insolvency, and contract disputes where she represents clients in business-critical matters to find pragmatic solutions. She has appeared in various levels of court and jurisdictions in Canada.


Her legendary pro bono efforts and achievements bring meaningful change to society. Passionate about access to justice, Mary incorporates pro bono programs into Osler’s workstream and persuaded management to give associates billable hour credit for the work, helping Osler earn an award for its excellence in services to self-represented litigants. Mary also supports colleagues in their own pro bono endeavors.


Mary has made appearances through Pro Bono Law Ontario’s Court of Appeal Amicus Program. And she acted for United Nations employees and achieved a precedent-setting outcome when an employee was awarded a widower’s benefit after his same-sex partner died.
