Karine Dion is an associate lawyer with Nelligan O'Brien Payne LLP, practising in our Labour and Employment Law groups. Her work includes drafting demand letters, pleadings, judicial reviews and anything else related to litigation. She also does a lot of research and preparatory work, including preparing witnesses, for labour arbitrations. Finally, Karine is the Blog Editor/Lead for the firm’s employment law blog, ‘The Workplace Matters’. She is fluently bilingual and represents her clients in both official languages.
Prior to joining Nelligan O'Brien Payne LLP, Karine practised insurance defence at a large Canadian firm. During law school she participated in the Laskin Moot Competition in French, and she also has experience in advocacy and criminal law.
Karine is committed to her clients and to resolving their legal issues. She is inquisitive by nature, and works hard to get her clients the compensation they deserve. Karine appreciates what they are going through, and strives to be accessible and responsive in all communication.
Outside of work, Karine spends most of her time outdoors. In winter that means ice-skating and snowboarding, while in summer she likes swimming, volley-ball and running in local races. She also loves adventure travelling, including climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania and hiking the entire Torres del Paine in Patagonia.
