Angela Shaffer joins Dentons in Toronto

Dentons has welcomed Angela Shaffer to its Toronto office as counsel in the banking and finance group.

A senior and experienced financial services regulatory lawyer for over 30 years, Shaffer regularly advises financial institutions and their executives on banking and insurance regulatory matters, corporate governance, compliance, risk management, anti-money laundering, transactions, securities, corporate and commercial law.

Over the course of her extensive career, Angela has held a number of senior executive and in-house roles, including general counsel, chief privacy officer and chief compliance officer. This makes her well-versed on the challenges and risks faced by Canadian financial institutions and insurance companies, Dentons said in a statement.

“Angela’s depth of banking regulatory experience brings a different perspective that will further enrich the exceptional service we can provide our clients,” Blair McCreadie, managing partner of Dentons’ Toronto office said. “Her extensive senior in-house experience in the banking regulatory, compliance and privacy in the financial services sector will further strengthen our team, and provide value-added strategic legal advice to our financial institution and fintech clients. Angela’s diverse skill set and knowledge will also compliment our existing practices in data management and governance, payments and open banking.”

Shaffer obtained her law degree from the University of Windsor, and was called to the Ontario Bar in 1983.
