Janice Payne joined Nelligan O'Brien Payne LLP as an articling student in 1975 and hasn't left since. Then called Nelligan Power, Payne was the first female lawyer hired among six men at the firm. "This was at a time when women were just beginning to make inroads into private practice," Payne explained. "So, it was a very different time. It was exciting to be at the forefront of that wave of women moving into the practice of law. In October 2000, Payne made further progress for women in the field when she became a name partner at the firm. "It was a time when very few women had their name in the firm name, and so again I felt like I was making inroads that were supportive both of women in our practice in the firm-because we have a much larger proportion of women now-and more broadly in the profession," she said. Focusing on employment and labour law, Payne has been widely recognized for her commitment to the practice and to her clients. She was selected by her legal colleagues for the 2006 and 2008-2015 editions of The Best Lawyers in Canada in Labour and Employment Law. She was also named one of the Leading 500 Lawyers in Canada in the 2008-2011 and 2014-2015 Lexpert®/American Lawyer Guide and in the 2013-2015 Canadian Legal Lexpert Directory for employment law. Add on the honour of "Lawyer of the Year" in the 2014 edition of The Best Lawyers in Canada for Ottawa employment and labour law to the list of accolades. Payne is a recipient of the Diamond Jubilee medal and was inducted into the Wall of Honour, by the University of Ottawa Common Law Society. Payne said one of her proudest achievements has been her role in helping women succeed in the practice of law and she has acted a mentor to both men and women in the field. Outside of her work at the firm, Payne is also very involved in the community. She is a former member of the Board of Directors and past President of the Ottawa Chamber Music Society, a former member of the Board of the National Youth Orchestra and is currently a member of the Board of Governors for the Community Foundation of Ottawa and the Board of Directors for the GCTC.
