|Geraldine is a Jamaican-Canadian who was first called to the Jamaican Bar to practice law in 2008 after a brief career with a local money market brokerage firm in a branch supervisory role. As a lawyer in Jamaica, Geraldine worked with a firm that focused primarily on financial institutions and securities firms, with Geraldine supporting her clients in navigating regulatory and compliance issues, as well as various aspects of Corporate & Commercial Law.
Having relocated to Canada, Geraldine was called to the Ontario Bar in 2014. She continued her practice in Corporate & Commercial Law at a well established Burlington law firm. There she specialized in Commercial Leases, Mergers & Acquisitions and in various types of corporate restructuring, while on occasion doing wills, estate planning and some real estate transactions.
Geraldine has now joined our practice as an Associate at O’Connor MacLeod Hanna LLP. As a member of our Business Law Department, Geraldine will continue her practice of Corporate & Commercial Law, supporting clients in Mergers & Acquisitions, Corporate Restructuring & Reorganizations, Business Incorporations (including for professional corporations) and Commercial Leases.
Geraldine is a focused, driven, and client-oriented individual, with strong interpersonal and communication skills. Her earlier training in client relationship management heavily influences how she practices the law and results in high levels of client satisfaction.
In addition to her Law Degree from the University of London, Geraldine holds a Bachelors degree in Business Administration. A wife and a mother, Geraldine is socially active in our community, whether by serving on the Board of the Burlington Food Bank or by singing with the choir and worship team of her church here in Oakville. When not on the job, Geraldine is either binge-watching her favourite TV series, listening to a non-fiction audiobook or walking through the many hiking trails in Oakville.
O’Connor MacLeod Hanna LLP has now entered its fifth decade of helping clients meet their business and professional goals. Proudly, OMH continues to grow along with the communities it serves.
It was in 1991 that Oakville’s two most formidable law firms decided that they could better serve the rapidly expanding community by joining forces. Each with twenty years experience, O’Connor Leitch Hays and MacLeod Knox Watts merged. Emerging areas of law could now be addressed along with conventional practice.
Just nine years later, there was further growth. With increased specialization in law, veteran Oakville lawyer Brian Hanna decided his clients would receive better service through a larger firm. The two firms joined together to become O’Connor MacLeod Hanna LLP.
OMH is proud to be thought of as a full-service law firm offering decades of experience and expertise in a wide variety of practice areas. Clients know that they can easily access seasoned professionals in a warm and welcoming environment.
While the OMH history is impressive, it sets a standard of excellence that is sure to continue as the firm looks to the future.
