More Information:

Amanda's journey into law is a tale of diverse experiences and a late bloom into the legal field. Before venturing into law, she honed her skills in marketing and business development, even stepping into the entrepreneurial world. This pre-law career saw her spearheading negotiations for a significant investment project in Alberta's Oil Sands, securing a $25 million investment. Her business acumen, gained from firsthand experience in operations and strategic planning, now informs her legal practice, enabling her to offer nuanced advice to business clients.

Her path to becoming an associate lawyer at Osuji & Smith was unconventional. Amanda initially pursued an undergraduate degree in philosophy, with a business minor, from the University of Calgary. Her intellectual curiosity then led her across the Atlantic to the University of Southampton in England, where she earned her law degree. Southampton's reputation as a top global institution and its membership in the prestigious Russell Group underscored the quality of education she received.

While in England, Amanda engaged in volunteer work with the European Union, focusing on animal welfare through legal research. This experience, coupled with her unique opportunity to shadow Andy Ransom and his legal team at Rentokil Initial PLC, set her apart from her peers and enriched her legal education with real-world insights.

Called to the Alberta Bar in 2020, Amanda's legal practice at Osuji & Smith is broad, encompassing family law, corporate law, wills & estate, employment law, and civil litigation. Her approach to law is client-centered, emphasizing clear communication and understanding of legal principles, ensuring her clients are well-informed and confident in their legal proceedings.

Beyond her professional endeavors, Amanda is deeply involved in the Calgary community. Her volunteer work spans several charities, including the Daraja Foundation and Woods Homes. She also co-founded an event aimed at connecting Calgary's entrepreneurial community and addressing the stigma around failure, showcasing her commitment to fostering a supportive and resilient business ecosystem.

Amanda's roots in Calgary run deep, being a first-generation Calgarian with a rich heritage in the Arab and Portuguese communities. Her personal pursuits include traveling and spending quality time with her family, reflecting a well-rounded individual who values both her professional and personal life.

Amanda's membership in the Law Society of Alberta and the Advocates Society, coupled with recognition from notable publications like Avenue Magazine, CTV, The Star, and Community Now! Magazine, speaks to her professional standing and contribution to the legal and local communities.
