WeirFoulds is pleased to announce that Megan Mah, associate of our Employment Law Practice Group, is the recipient of the Federation of Asian Canadian Lawyers’ (FACL) Ontario Young Lawyer of the Year Award. The award ceremony took take place on Friday, February 19, 2021 during FACL’s 2021 virtual conference.
The Young Lawyer of the Year Award recognizes an Asian-Canadian legal professional, who has practiced law for no more than 10 years, for achievements which are beyond what is expected of him or her based on his or her experience.
Megan has developed a diverse practice that focuses on human rights, employment, regulatory and constitutional law. She has a hybrid advisory and litigation practice, representing plaintiffs/applicants, defendants/respondents, and employers and employees. Recently, Megan has advised many clients regarding their rights and obligations in the context of COVID-19. She assists employers of all sizes in navigating the complex and unprecedented legal issues presented by the current pandemic.
Megan’s work within WeirFoulds goes well beyond her client files. She is known for her commitment to advancing diversity and inclusion and has played an integral role in helping to develop an inclusive culture at WeirFoulds. Megan is actively involved in the firm’s summer student and junior associate mentorship program, and student recruitment programs and she has led several other outreach and team-building initiatives.
Megan is also an active member of the broader community through pro bono and charitable work. She is the co-organizer of #CommunityOverCOVID, a movement to encourage professionals who were able to work from home during the pandemic to donate their would-be lunch money to the Daily Bread Food Bank, and a volunteer with Pro Bono Ontario’s summary advice program, just to name a few.
The firm congratulates Megan on this well-earned achievement.
