Second to none, Fiona is the B in SBA. For 16 years Fiona worked on Bay Street, where she broke barriers by being the first female partner, and then the first female Chair, in the insurance group. Fiona brought the same values with her when she came to SBA.
Throughout her enduring career, Fiona has been consistently energized by her clients and the relationships she has built with them. She thrives on social interaction, whether it be with her clients or with her fellow and opposing lawyers. Everyone (and we mean everyone) trusts Fiona’s word because they know that she is firm but always fair.
Fiona’s clients appreciate her genuine authenticity, approachability, her proactive nature and her responsive and frequent reporting. She doesn’t like to waste her client’s time because she understands how valuable it is and she, too, would rather be travelling the world than following up on emails and chasing down reports. She gets it.
When she isn’t playing a tennis match, Fiona’s practice focuses on the defence of occupiers’ liability claims for large national clients. She litigates like she serves, with a strong offense. Rumour has it she once broke the door off a police car. Based on the fact she received a 3 minute penalty in a rec-league broom ball game, we don’t doubt it.
