MONTREAL, Nov. 27, 2014 /CNW/ - Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt LLP is pleased today to recognize a brilliant litigator, colleague and partner, Suzanne Côté, who has been appointed to the Supreme Court of Canada effective December 1, 2014.
Suzanne Côté's appointment to the Supreme Court of Canada is richly earned recognition of her extraordinary legal career and we know she will serve the Court with distinction.
It is entirely fitting that she takes up this position as the first woman to join the Court from private practice as she has been a trailblazer in litigation and advocacy throughout her exceptional career. She has guided the Osler litigation team in Quebec for many years, has advised clients on the most challenging and precedent setting cases, and has served as a role model to a next generation of litigators.
We will miss her many contributions to the success of our firm but know the very qualities that have propelled her to the nation's highest Court will carry on in the many lawyers at Osler who have had the privilege of working with Suzanne.
Suzanne Côté has been a member of the Quebec bar since 1981. She has led the Montreal litigation group since joining the firm in 2010. She has a law degree from the Université Laval and has lectured at the Université du Québec a Rimouski and the Université de Montréal.
Osler is proud to recognize Suzanne Côté who follows in the footsteps of another Osler partner and first female Supreme Court Justice in Canada, The Honourable Bertha Wilson, appointed to the Supreme Court of Canada in 1982.
On behalf of everyone at Osler, we extend our heartfelt congratulations to Suzanne Côté.
