TAYLOR BAIN

Taylor is committed to a trauma-informed practice that focuses on client needs. Her written and oral advocacy effectively showcases client stories and focuses on what is important. 

 

Taylor earned her law degree from the University of Ottawa Faculty of Law, where she specialized in Dispute Resolution and Professionalism. She has also been a member of and mentor for the University of Ottawa’s Legal Writing Academy since 2020, where she consults others on how to make their writing more accessible and improve their interpersonal skills. She was also selected to coach the University of Ottawa’s Walsh Family Law Moot team, which produced top-scoring advocates. 

 

During her studies, Taylor worked as a legal research assistant to Professor Jane Bailey, which involved collaborating with experts in the field of technology-facilitated violence and abuse. Taylor was also Co-President of the University of Ottawa’s Association of Women and the Law, where she worked to promote substantive equality for women, girls, and people who experience gender-based discrimination. She continues to strive for such progress. 

 

Aside from her work with Gillian Hnatiw & Co, Taylor has worked with Nunavut Legal Aid on various employment law cases. She has also assisted in judicial review matters that fought against stereotypical assumptions about strippers and sex workers.
