Tuesday, October 09, 2018 @ 1:55 PM | By John Chunn

Polley Faith LLP announced that Emma Carver and Madeleine Brown have joined the firm as associates.

Carver was previously with Polley Faith and has recently returned after a stint with the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada, where she provided advice on legal affairs and policy.

She has a broad litigation practice that includes civil litigation, professional regulation and liability, administrative proceedings, corporate and commercial disputes and health law. She has particular experience in the areas of public and constitutional law.

Carver received a B.A. from McGill University in economics and a juris doctor (silver medallist) from the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Law.

While at law school, she sat on the executive board of Downtown Legal Services and served as the clinic’s community outreach co-ordinator. At Downtown Legal Services she provided pro bono legal representation in the areas of criminal defence and human rights.

Prior to joining the firm as an associate, Brown was a summer student and completed her articles with Polley Faith, where she worked on a wide range of litigation matters, including civil, commercial and regulatory litigation, as well as criminal defence.

Brown received her juris doctorate from Osgoode Hall Law School, where she won several awards, including the J. Edward Thompson Memorial Scholarship for the highest standing in the litigation, dispute resolution and the administration of justice curricular stream. She was selected to represent Osgoode at several international advocacy competitions, including the American Bar Association negotiation competition in Massachusetts and the International Academy of Dispute Resolution mediation competition in Glasgow, where she finished first.
