Welcome Back Sam & Mari

Both Sam Hale and Mari Galloway have previously summered, articled, and were associates at the firm. We are thrilled to have them return following their clerkship and pupillage terms, respectively.

“We are very pleased to welcome back two of our brightest stars,” says Managing Partner, Tom Curry. “Sam and Mari return to us with fresh ideas and experiences in the Supreme Court of Canada and a pupilage through the Fox Scholarship in the Inns of Court in London. We look forward to working with them again and watching them continue to develop their advocacy skills.”

Sam Hale’s litigation practice covers a wide range of areas, including commercial disputes, professional liability and regulation, civil matters, and public litigation. Prior to rejoining our firm, she served as a law clerk to Justice Suzanne Côté at the Supreme Court of Canada. She also previously completed a clerkship at the Divisional Court and Superior Court of Justice in Toronto, where she assisted judges on a wide variety of administrative appeals, judicial reviews, class actions, civil trials, and commercial matters.

Sam received her law degree from the University of Windsor, where she completed a Masters of Social Work concurrently. Sam excelled academically, graduating as the Gold Medalist and being selected as the Valedictorian of her class.

Mari Galloway has experience across a broad spectrum of litigation matters including corporate commercial disputes, IP and professional liability. She returns to the firm after completing a six-month pupillage at the Inns of Court in London, England as a Fox Scholar. Mari completed her term at two leading commercial law chambers, 4 Pump Court and 5 Essex Court.

Mari graduated magna cum laude from the University of Ottawa where she worked as a research assistant for the Centre for Law, Technology and Society, the Refugee Hub and the Environmental Justice project.
