After spending countless hours reviewing written submissions and observing oral arguments in court, Meghan knows what persuasive advocacy looks like and how to present a seamless argument that will advance her clients’ interests. 

Meghan is developing a diverse litigation practice. Prior to joining Lax O'Sullivan, Meghan worked as a law clerk at the Ontario Divisional Court and Superior Court of Justice. In that role, she assisted panels of the Divisional Court with appeals and applications for judicial review. Meghan worked closely with judges and became involved in many aspects of the trial process, in all areas of the Superior Court’s jurisdiction.

Meghan obtained her J.D. from the University of Ottawa and holds a Master’s in International Affairs from the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs. While in law school, Meghan gravitated towards advocacy experiences. This included volunteering with Pro Bono Students Canada and the Native Women's Association of Canada, co-authoring a report with the Canadian Red Cross on the legal barriers to humanitarian intervention in natural disasters, and working on Parliament Hill for a senator. As a summer student, Meghan interned at a federal tribunal and worked as a report writer for Ontario’s Far North Electoral Boundaries Commission.
