Welcome back to environmental litigator Paula Boutis, who returns to our firm after growing her practice and experience in other firms! And thank you to Jackie Campbell, who has moved on after many years of client and pro bono work with our firm.
Many of you will remember Paula, who started her practice with us in 2001. Since then, she had the good fortune to work in a variety of places and learn from many excellent lawyers. She still works part time with our friends at Iler Campbell, doing litigation and corporate matters for charities, co-ops and non-profits. But her first love remains environmental law, which she taught at Centennial College for the School of Engineering and Applied Science,
“I am truly delighted to return to Saxe Law Office, and look forward to many years with Dianne, her staff, and the firm’s many wonderful clients,” Paula says.
Since starting her practice in 2001, Paula has combined her Masters of Biology with her specialization in environmental law from the Schulich School of Law at Dalhousie University to provide her clients with top notch environmental legal advice. She has serviced corporate, non profit and municipal clients, giving her a diverse perspective on the complex environmental issues that our laws and policies seek to address.
Paula has provided opinions on a variety of environmental legal issues, ranging from municipal by-law powers, to obligations under various environmental statutes. As a litigator, she has practiced before various administrative tribunals, in the provincial and superior courts, and at all appellate level courts, including the Supreme Court of Canada.
In 2013, Paula joined the faculty at Centennial College, where she teaches the Environmental Legislation & Regulation course to students enrolled in the School of Engineering Technology and Applied Science.
In her spare time, Paula enjoys the outdoors with her family and friends, and volunteers her time with environmentally or socially minded organizations.
And thank you and best wishes to Jackie Campbell, for her many years of enthusiasm, devotion and good cheer. Jackie has now returned to full time practice as a pharmacist.
