“MT + Co. is committed to practicing law in a new way, including breaking down hierarchies and barriers within the legal world. I wanted to work somewhere close-knit where people genuinely care about each other and the work they are doing. The people at MT + Co. are kind, fun and inclusive, which is the way I want to be too – plus, dogs at work? Heck yes!”

She brings a broad range of litigation experience, including in constitutional issues, Indigenous law, complex commercial litigation, administrative tribunals, and employment matters.

Linette loves the outdoors, including hiking, skiing, camping, and pub crawls (those are outdoors, right?). She is an avid traveler and fluent in conversational German. On a rainy day (of which they are many here in Vancouver), you can find Linette enjoying a good book or testing out a new board game.
