Scarfo, who has been managing partner since 2013, is one of the two women partners on the firm’s four-person executive committee, a statement from Blaneys said. She joined the firm in 1989, as an associate in its insurance group.
According to the announcement, Scarfo is an experienced litigator who defends claims for insurance companies, public authorities and corporations. Throughout her 30-year practice, she has represented clients in several sensitive and high-profile cases, specializing in claims involving institutional sexual abuse and the defence of public authorities.
