About Pauline Bosman

Litigation Lawyer Markham/Richmond Hill Ontario

As a seasoned litigator, Pauline knows that success in litigation depends not only on the merits of a case but on the management of the litigation process. She has represented clients from individuals to large multinationals. With her client-centric approach, Pauline takes the time to understand her clients' needs and goals and looks for strategic, practical and cost-effective solutions. Responsive and knowledgeable, Pauline ensures that her clients have what they need to make informed choices every step of the way whether in bringing or in defending an action. She knows that each step has to make both legal and business sense. Rational and straight forward, Pauline has successfully argued cases in a variety of commercial contexts, at both trial and appellant levels in Ontario and Federal Courts, most notably in the areas of intellectual property law, construction law and contract law. (See our publications page for a list of reported cases).

Pauline earned her law degree from the University of Toronto in 1992 and was called to the bar in 1994. She practiced commercial litigation primarily in the areas of construction law, condominium law, mortgage enforcement and contract claims for six years with a full service firm in downtown Toronto before concentrating on intellectual property litigation. Pauline completed her Master of Laws degree in Intellectual Property from Osgoode Hall Law School in 2004 and practiced for nine years as senior litigator with one of Canada’s preeminent intellectual property boutiques. She founded Bosman Law in 2009.
