Carol Hansell, founder and senior partner of Hansell LLP, was included among the top 25 most influential lawyers in Canadian Lawyer Magazine’s 2016 list. She was included within the Corporate-Commercial category. Quoting from the article:
Hansell was recently appointed by Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne’s government to chair the Business Law Advisory Council, where she’ll lead the team making recommendations to modernize the province’s business law framework. Over the past decade or so, Hansell has turned herself from an M&A lawyer into a champion of corporate governance. Expanding her horizons further, at the beginning of this year, Hansell LLP launched Hansell Board Evaluations providing expert, independent guidance to boards in identifying opportunities to enhance their effectiveness. In May, she launched a unique, powerhouse advisory firm, Hansell McLaughlin Advisory, which brings together legal, government relations, and communications teams.
The article noted that, the view of voters, Carol has been an “Inspirational role model for women in corporate law.”
