Meet Kathleen Ritchie

In the latest video of our Influencers in Toronto series, Kathleen Ritchie, partner and head of our Toronto office's Business Law Department, shares her journey over the last 25 years of becoming a securities and corporate lawyer, a "trusted adviser" to our clients and how she has helped our clients and firm develop and grow.

With her practice focussed on public and private M&A and corporate finance transactions, as well as securities regulatory and corporate governance matters, Kathleen is known by her clients and colleagues for approaching her work with a great deal of intensity, integrity and loyalty. "I particularly like when clients have unique elements to their transactions that require strategic and innovative solutions. I like leading-edge, never been done before kind of work. The fun and excitement of working with a great client and the wonderful team here, the adrenaline of getting a deal done, this is what I enjoy most about my work."
