There is a long list of reasons why NST might choose to make Julia a partner: she was gold medallist in her graduating class at University of Toronto’s law school; she clerked at the Supreme Court of Canada; she is an adjunct professor and moot coach at UBC’s law school.

While all of that is true, Julia is a partner at NST because she has, in her short time at the bar, built an attentive, personalized practice that blends an incredible legal intelligence with a thoughtful, client-focused approach. Julia is a talented trial and appellate lawyer who carries on a commercial and administrative litigation practice. She has experience before all levels of court, including the Supreme Court of Canada. Recognized as a Future Star by Benchmark Litigation, Julia has a passion for the law; for bettering the profession; and a desire to increase access to justice.

“Julia is an extraordinary talent and an emerging star in the British Columbia legal market,” founding partner Stephen  R. Schachter, Q.C. says. “We could not be more delighted that she has agreed to join our partnership.”
