Daniella Murynka

ASSOCIATE

Daniella has a broad practice in civil and regulatory litigation. Her work takes her before a variety of Ontario courts and tribunals, where she continues to develop expertise in complex contract interpretation, class action law and procedure, employment disputes, and professional negligence. She has a track record of thorough preparation, frank advice, and creative strategies for success. Daniella believes that strong advocacy starts with sensible legal writing—and she delivers. She honed her writing skills while completing her Juris Doctor and Master of Arts in English at the University of Toronto. As a proud Albertan, Daniella is too humble to mention that she has received numerous awards for legal writing. She is a staunch plain-language advocate and writes regularly for The Walrus and other publications on matters of legal interest. She is also our sounding board when it comes to clearly expressing tricky legal concepts to clients. Above all, Daniella thinks the law, and lawyers, should be clear, effective, and useful. We think her dedication to clear communication makes her a great asset to our team and to clients. And she’s not too bad at Scrabble, either.
