Gillian Scott has a new role as partner, innovative products, at Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt LLP.

Scott leads the development, staffing, pricing, launch and sale of new legal service offerings that “address clients’ pain points and service gaps,” the firm said.  Scott’s first focus in the role will be on Osler Dash, the automated franchise disclosure and e-contracting product of the firm’s franchise and distribution group, according to the firm’s announcement.

Scott’s new client-facing job is part of the Osler’s overall innovation strategy, the announcement said. The firm funds new tools and projects and provides “expert guidance, technology, resources and project management support” to benefit clients, said Osler.

Scott is also a member of the firm’s Innovation Council, where she works closely with the innovation team, the Osler Works group and the client development team.

Prior to being assigned to this role, Scott was client development partner, and she previously held roles in business development for the firm. She also has chops as a litigator, having joined Osler in 2006 as an associate, before becoming a partner in 2013, according to her LinkedIn profile. She was called to the Ontario Bar in 2003.
