McCarthy Tétrault welcomes new partner Wendy Berman to the Firm’s Toronto office Litigation Group

Wendy Berman joins McCarthy Tétrault’s Toronto office as a partner in the Litigation Group and leader of the securities litigation practice. Wendy is one of Canada’s foremost litigators with extensive experience in complex commercial and cross-border securities-related litigation. She has exceptional expertise in corporate misconduct investigations and crisis management, securities class actions, litigation aspects of proxy contests, take-over bids and other acquisitions, and corporate governance.

From June 2020 to December 2021, Wendy served as Vice-Chair of the Ontario Securities Commission (OSC). During her tenure she was a member of the Commission, its board of directors, adjudicative committee and executive team, and acted as an executive sponsor for several critical OSC initiatives.

As a sought after and highly-respected securities litigator, Wendy is well known on both sides of the border. Her arrival further strengthens the Firm’s internationally-lauded, securities litigation, investigations, and class actions  practices. Her expertise will be of particular interest to Canadian and U.S.-based institutional clients requiring an advisor with keen intellect and an insider’s view of securities regulatory practices and developments in both countries.

“We are delighted to have Wendy join the McCarthy Tétrault litigation group,” said Caroline Zayid, Litigation National Practice Group Leader. “Her decades of experience and stellar reputation in securities litigation will be a real benefit to our clients. Wendy is a great addition to the team.”
