In 2000 when Mr. Justice Power left the firm to become a Superior Court Judge, the partners voted to add Allan O'Brien's and Janice Payne's names to that of the firm - resulting in the former Nelligan Power becoming Nelligan O'Brien Payne LLP.
"John's energy and keen mind are still an inspiration to all of us," says Janice Payne, partner, Nelligan O'Brien Payne LLP.
In 1974, Janice Payne was the first woman to join the firm as an articling student after earning her LL.B. (Magna Cum Laude) from the University of Ottawa. In 1976, she was the first woman hired as a practising lawyer at the firm, known then as Nelligan Power.
Today, she is widely acknowledged to be one of the top lawyers in Canada in the employment law field. Janice has represented her clients in cases that have strengthened the rights of employees in the public and private sectors and is sought after as both a negotiator and advocate.
In 2001, she was honoured for her pioneer role in the legal profession by the Women's Law Association of Ontario, in recognition of her contributions to law, women in the profession, and to the community. She was also honoured by The Advocates' Society in 2007 for her outstanding contribution as a lawyer in the Ottawa area. Janice was selected by her peers in law for The Best Lawyers in Canada for Labour and Employment Law and as one of the Leading 500 Lawyers in Canada by Lexpert/American Lawyer Guide for her Employment Law expertise.
