More Information:

At Torkin Manes, Linda stands out as a leading partner who presides over the Not-for-Profit & Charities Law Group. Her advisory role stretches across a broad spectrum of nonprofit entities and charitable organizations, enveloping a variety of sectors including professional associations, regulatory bodies, and groups focused on religion, healthcare, education, social welfare, poverty reduction, child care, and sports and leisure activities.

In her capacity, Linda frequently serves as the external chief legal advisor for a myriad of organizations within the nonprofit sector, both charitable and otherwise. Her counsel is sought for a wide array of legal matters, from the initial formation and subsequent restructuring of these entities to navigating the complexities of corporate governance, interpreting by-laws, managing liability issues for directors and officers, ensuring regulatory compliance, fostering cross-border and international partnerships, and addressing the nuances of donations, endowments, and fundraising initiatives. Beyond these specific areas, she also extends her legal expertise to encompass general commercial advice for her clients in the not-for-profit and charitable sectors.

Linda’s profound understanding of the unique challenges faced by not-for-profits and charities is underpinned by her impressive credentials and longstanding commitment to the community. Admitted to the Ontario Bar in 1989, her legal acumen is backed by a solid educational foundation with an LLB from Osgoode Hall Law School, achieved in 1987, and a BA with Distinction from McGill University, obtained in 1984. Her expertise, coupled with her extensive involvement in community initiatives, positions her as a pivotal figure in the legal landscape for not-for-profit and charitable organizations.
