Meaghen Russell is the latest partner to join Dentons Canada LLP .

Russell, who will be based in Toronto, is working with the firm’s employment, labour and pensions group. She will advise and represent employers on a range of matters including human rights issues, workplace accommodation, wrongful dismissal litigation and employment contracts and policies. Russell will also provide training to clients on topics such as workplace accommodation, and workplace violence and harassment.

Before practising in Ontario, Russell was with a full-service law firm in Chicago where she represented private and public sector employers in the areas of employment, labour, education law and civil rights defence.

She has shared her knowledge of the American and Canadian systems as a speaker at a number of comparative law presentations and seminars.

“We are very fortunate to have Meaghen join our growing employment and labour practice in Toronto,” said Blair McCreadie, managing partner of Dentons’ Toronto office.

“Her cross-border knowledge will allow her to provide our clients with a unique and multifaceted perspective, adding to the overall strength of our team.”
