Rushi works with both the Restructuring and Insolvency and Commercial Litigation practice groups. Rushi is regularly involved in researching complex legal issues and drafting various documents for both practice areas. Rushi first joined the firm as an articling student, where she developed her attentive, open-minded and people-oriented approach to legal service, which is complemented by her strong intrinsic motivation to grow as a professional.
Rushi is an avid researcher. During her undergraduate studies, Rushi completed an Independent Research Project which consequently led her to become a published author in an internationally acclaimed peer-reviewed science journal – the Journal of American Society for Microbiology. Her analytical skills and love for investigation pushed her to continue pursuing research in law school, where she also worked as a research assistant for two law professors, focusing on intellectual property law, competition law and privacy law. During law school, Rushi also participated and placed as a finalist in various moots, worked as a caseworker for Windsor Community Legal Aid, worked for two criminal defense lawyers, and volunteered at a personal injury law firm before graduating with her law degree.
Rushi is also a committed community leader. She was awarded the title of “Miss Vaughan” in 2017, which provided her a platform and a voice to advocate for important issues, including raising awareness on internet addiction and its damaging effects on health in children. She was invited to present her research on internet addiction and health in various schools and community events. Rushi remains committed to advocacy and leadership in her legal career.
