Toronto Human Rights Lawyer

Toronto human rights lawyer Elyse Mallins has a well established human rights litigation practice with substantial experience advising employers on their most challenging legal concerns regarding the workplace. She completed her LL.B at Osgoode Hall Law School, after obtaining an Honours Bachelor of Sociology degree at York University.

Prior to joining Devry Smith Frank LLP (DSF) as a partner in the Employment and Labour Law Group, Elyse began her career at a large Bay Street firm representing some of Canada’s most important and high-profile businesses. Subsequently, she progressed in-house where she advised Canada’s largest private-sector employer on commonplace business and labour and employment matters and was responsible for more than 130,000 employees nationally.

In addition to the exceptional legal guidance, risk management, and business operations advice that Elyse provides to her clients, she is also a highly skilled and tenacious advocate, fighting for her client’s rights in mediations, arbitrations, and at trial at various levels of court.

Elyse’s multi-faceted experience has allowed her to sit on both sides of the table in a workplace dispute: she has been both the client and the counsel and takes pride in imparting this knowledge within her talented team, thus providing outstanding and skillful legal representation.
