Luciana Andrade
Area of Practice: Legal Counsel at Philips

Luciana is originally from Brazil, where she has acquired over 7 years’ experience as a litigator in a civil law system. While in Brazil, she acted in private practice representing major financial institutions and as a legal counsel for a mining company during one of the largest dam collapse cases in South America. Luciana immigrated to Canada in 2018. She has completed her NCA qualifications through the GPLLM with the University of Toronto, and joined Fogler, Rubinoff, LLP as a summer student in 2021 where she is currently completing her articles. Luciana is passionate about mentoring internationally trained lawyers to help them achieve their goals – Over the past year, she has helped her peers to successfully secure summer and articling positions in Bay Street and elsewhere, and she looks forward to sharing her tips and experience with NCA Network members. Luciana is happy to answer questions about LLM studies, the NCA accreditation, the LSO lawyer licensing process (including bar exams), the LSO formal articling and summer recruitments, and life hacks to survive all of this. Luciana is a mom to two beautiful children and would also be happy to speak with other parents about balancing the licensing process with family responsibilities.
