Our Bench Strength Gets Stronger

Canada’s leading litigation firm continues to attract top legal talent, with the addition of three exceptional new associates.

We are proud to announce that Aoife Quinn, Jonathan McDaniel, and Scott Azzopardi have joined Lenczner Slaght, adding to our collective experience and knowledge.

Aoife Quinn's practice encompasses a broad range of civil litigation. She has particular experience acting for clients on urgent matters, including motions for injunctive relief. Prior to joining the firm, Aoife articled and practiced as a litigator at an international law firm where she worked on a wide variety of civil litigation matters including commercial disputes, real estate disputes, and construction lien matters. Aoife is known for her ability to jump head-first into a situation and effectively deliver results for her clients. Her advocacy experience began in law school where she was an active participant in the mooting program, receiving an award for top factum at the 2014 Wilson Moot, and coaching the winning team in 2015.

Jonathan McDaniel’s growing litigation practice includes complex commercial litigation matters, international commercial arbitrations, and class action proceedings. Drawing on his varied experience, Jon gets to the bottom of the issues that are important to his clients, which have included oil and gas companies, manufacturers, financial institutions, insurers, technology companies, and government agencies. Prior to joining the firm, Jon practiced as at a major national firm in both Calgary and Toronto. In law school, Jon volunteered with Pro Bono Ontario's civil litigation drop-in clinic, and at Downtown Legal Services' criminal law division.

Scott Azzopardi’s commercial litigation practice focusses on class actions and competition law. Scott has assisted with matters before all levels of Court in Canada, and has appeared before the Ontario Superior Court and the Court of Appeal for Ontario. Prior to joining the firm, Scott practiced in the litigation department of a major national law firm. During law school, Scott was recognized for his advocacy skills, winning the Lenczner Slaght Ethics and Professionalism Appellate Advocacy Competition, the Chaitons Corporate Restructuring Moot, and placing in the finals of the Gale Cup Moot. Scott was also a student editor for the Canadian Journal of Law and Jurisprudence.
