Profile

Jessica is an associate in our Insurance Defence Group with a practice that encompasses all aspects of insurance defence litigation, including first- and third-party bodily injury, casualty, disability matters, slip and falls, property damage, product liability, environmental claims, professional liability, commercial disputes and coverage opinions.

In her previous role, Jessica gained extensive experience as defence counsel to the largest direct-response home and auto insurance group, and one of the top three personal home and auto insurance groups in Canada, where she successfully represented insurance clients at the LAT Tribunal, discoveries, hearings, mediations, settlement negotiations, pre-trials and similar proceedings. 

Jessica has a clear passion and aptitude for negotiation, demonstrated through her commitment to achieving early resolution, where appropriate, while also striving for and maintaining a low average closed file indemnity for her corporate clients. Her strong understanding of the insurance company ecosystem, coupled with her ability to skillfully mitigate costly legal risk and exposure, ideally positions Jessica as a trusted advisor to her clients, who benefit from her knowledge of and dedication to the success of their organizational ecosystems and business objectives.
