Headshot of Linda Rothstein

Congratulations to Linda Rothstein, Class of 1980, the recipient of the Ontario Bar Association’s 2018 Award for Excellence in Civil Litigation. Rothstein is a 2014 Distinguished Alumna of the Faculty of Law and a great supporter of the law school.

Called to the bar in 1982, she is a partner and former managing partner at Paliare Roland Rosenberg and Rothstein. She has a diverse practice and is a highly sought-after speaker for her expertise in class actions, commercial litigation, professional liability, public law and appeals. She also acts as a mediator/arbitrator in civil and commercial litigation. Rothstein “is known for her probing cross-examinations but also for her strategic advice and behind-the-scenes counsel work on high stakes cases.”

The annual OBA award recognizes a top lawyer in Ontario who dedicates his/her career to advocacy, advancing civil litigation practice, and leadership in the civil litigation bar.

She will receive her award at a special dinner celebration in her honour on November 21, 2018 at the Ritz Carlton, Toronto.
