Lisa has been a heavily involved member of the OBA’s Information Technology and Intellectual Property Law Section throughout her career, having served as the Section’s Secretary from 2016-2018, as Chair during the 2018-2019 year, and as a Member-at-Large during the 2021-2022 session.

She has developed a reputation for leveraging innovative and creative strategies to bridge the gap between business and legal requirements. This has earned her a well-deserved recognition by Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch as an upcoming leading practitioner in Information Technology Law in the publication’s 2022 and 2023 rankings.
Lisa will be honoured by the Ontario Bar Association at a ceremony on Tuesday, June 13th.
