Catherine has been practicing in the area of insurance defence litigation since 1995. Her current practice focuses on the defence of statutory accident benefits claims, including acting on behalf of auto insurers in loss transfer and priority disputes between insurers, and tort claims. Her practice includes a focus on privacy law. She has analyzed legislation, case law, policies, studies and current developments in privacy law. She has drafted privacy defence reference materials for clients (including federal and provincial privacy). She defends clients on cyber security breaches across Canada.

She has acted as legislative counsel on behalf of automobile insurers. On behalf of insurers she worked in approaching the Financial Services Commission of Ontario and successfully argued for the Superintendent’s approval of Insurers’ Preferred Provider Networks (PPNs).This permitted insurers across the Province of Ontario to arrange for a claimant to attend groups of insurer selected health care providers to deliver programs of care. Thereafter, as counsel for insurers she successfully worked with the Financial Services Commission to establish best practices for Preferred Provider Networks and to minimize insurers’ exposure to conflicts of interest and unfair and deceptive practice and act allegations.
