McCarthy Tétrault Bolsters Environmental Law and Commercial Litigation Expertise with New Partner Una Radoja
May 8, 2023 – McCarthy Tétrault welcomes Una Radoja as a partner in its Litigation Group in Vancouver. A leading lawyer in environmental law and commercial litigation, Una has extensive experience in representing diverse clients on complex litigation matters and providing innovative solutions that support their business needs.
Clients turn to Una for her legal acumen and astute judgment, as well as her guidance on their most difficult challenges and disputes. She is a trusted advisor to organizations of all sizes and provides strategic advice that enables clients to successfully mitigate risks, resolve issues and attain their goals.
Her ability to deliver a winning argument and her regulatory regime knowledge make her a go-to litigator in both the general commercial and contaminated sites space. She is ranked by Chambers Canada as an “Up and Coming” lawyer for Environment and General Commercial Litigation, on a national and regional level, respectively. She has also been named as a “Leading Lawyer” in Environmental Law by Lexpert and to Benchmark Litigation Canada’s Top 100 Women in Litigation list, among other honours.
Una’s environmental law practice focuses on risk management and cost recovery claims, and she is known as a top expert on contaminated site matters. She routinely advises commercial property owners, developers, and industrial operators on minimizing environmental risk arising from ownership and operations on contaminated land.
In her commercial litigation and dispute resolution practice, Una acts on a variety of high-profile and multifaceted matters, including contractual and shareholder disputes, claims by or against directors and officers, and professional negligence claims. She represents a range of clients, including small businesses, commercial property owners, strata corporations, developers, specialty insurers, and large, multi-national corporations and REITs.
Una is strongly invested in supporting other lawyers and is the Co-Founder of Life in Law, a non-profit society that aims to stem the exodus of women from the practice of law.
“Una is an extraordinary lawyer and an outstanding addition to our team,” said Sunil Kapur, Litigation National Practice Group Leader and partner in McCarthy Tétrault’s Labour & Employment Group. “Her business acumen combined with her impressive legal expertise in both environmental and commercial litigation make her a formidable force that will be of great benefit to our clients. She brings a deep understanding of our clients’ business objectives and the complex legal landscapes in which they operate, including leading insight into the contaminated sites space, which enables her to deliver outstanding results and resolutions that are focused on their needs. We’re delighted to have her join our firm.”
