Alison McEwen is an associate lawyer with Nelligan O’Brien Payne LLP, and a member of our Labour Law and Employment Law practice groups.

Alison received her J.D. from the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. During law school, Alison was a clinician and then later a clinic head at the Law Students’ Legal Advice Program, which offers legal service to low income clients. She also completed a role as the coordinator of the Pro Bono Students Canada program at UBC. During all three years of law school Alison was heavily involved in the UBC Law Careers Committee.

Prior to being called to the Ontario bar, Alison spent a year as a judicial law clerk with the judges of the East Region of the Superior Court of Justice. She also completed her articles at Nelligan O’Brien Payne.

What Alison finds most rewarding about her role is working with her clients to figure out what their ultimate goal is, and the best way to achieve it.

In her spare time, Alison has returned to her first love of show jumping, and spends as much time riding and competing as she can. She also enjoys playing with her rec softball team and relaxing at her cottage in the Ottawa Valley.
