Allison
Sproule+

Law Student

Contact

Originally hailing from Regina, Saskatchewan, Allison grew up surrounded by lawyers with a lot of hardworking prairie grit; she got her first taste of legal work when she was only 16. After a stint in the financial sector, Allison has returned to the legal world to make use of her passion for client advocacy, strategic thinking, and advisory work.

Why MT+Co.?

“Of all the firms I saw or interviewed with, MT+Co. was the only one I could see myself working for long-term: a nimble, innovative, high-integrity law firm with a great sense of humour and aspirational long-term goals. Plus, the prairie kid in me loves the unpretentious, egalitarian culture.”

Expertise

Allison has a strong interest in commercial disputes, natural resources and environmental issues, and Aboriginal law. She has worked on several large-scale Aboriginal rights and title cases.

Allison previously worked in the financial industry. She brings hands-on experience in business, finance, and wealth advisory work to her legal practice.

Worth Noting

Allison recently finished writing her first fantasy fiction novel—but if it takes her as long to edit as it did to write, you can expect to see it published around 2030. Allison is a serial skills collector; if she sees a thing, she wants to do it. Her list of casually-acquired skills runs the gamut from modern calligraphy to target shooting (real guns or Big Buck Hunter—take your pick).
