The partners of Blaney McMurtry LLP re-elected Maria Scarfo as managing partner for a third three-year term.

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.

She obtained her bachelor’s degree from the University of Toronto in 1984, and her LLB from Osgoode Hall Law School in 1987, before being called to the Ontario Bar in 1989.
