Lawyer, Indigenous Law, Litigation and Business Law + Transactions

Contact

Serin Remedios is a multifaceted lawyer who brings her expertise in environmental sciences and economics to assist clients in navigating through a full range of environmental and regulatory matters.  Her background and experience in environmental law empowers her to bring an important perspective to our Indigenous Law Group, Business Law + Transactions team and Litigation team.  All of these teams collaborate regularly with Serin.

Despite working broadly with all lawyers in the firm, Serin still finds time to bake for the office (didn’t we say she is multifaceted?); we patiently await her next creation!

Why MT+Co.?

“For me, MT+Co.’s people-first mentality really makes it special. At MT+Co., I can help clients with meaningful, interesting matters while working with colleagues who have fun together and care for each other. MT+Co.’s inclusive culture also fits with my desire for a more inclusive, diverse legal profession.

Since the moment I started working here, I have felt welcomed and part of the team. From email shout-outs to welcome gifts of instant ramen (there’s a story behind this), my colleagues are constantly supportive and thoughtful.”

Background

Serin completed her Bachelor of Science (with Distinction) at the University of King’s College in Halifax, studying environmental science and economics.

Serin attended law school at the University of Toronto. While at law school, Serin participated in the Willms & Shier Environmental Law Moot and argued in front of a panel of judges from the Ontario Court of Appeal, Federal Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court of Canada. Serin’s team won first place, and Serin was awarded first place oralist.

Serin worked as a research assistant at the University of Toronto Faculty of Law with Professor Andrew Green. There, she researched municipal liability arising from climate change. She also authored a white paper on integrated water resource management.

Serin summered, articled and worked as an associate for several years with a leading environmental and Indigenous law firm in Toronto.

Serin is called to the Bar in both Ontario and British Columbia.

Worth Noting

Serin escaped the big city of Toronto and moved to Vancouver to be closer to family.

During her transition from Ontario to BC, Serin spent a month and a half skiing the mountains and volcanoes of backcountry Kamchatka, Russia. There, she developed a fondness for Russian food, Russian vodka, hot springs, and Kamchatka brown bears.

When she is not at work, you’ll typically find Serin skiing in the backcountry, exploring her new-found love of mountain biking or testing out a new recipe.
