Charlotte K.B. Harman
Charlotte K.B. Harman is a litigation associate at Branch MacMaster. She relocated to Vancouver in 2022 after spending her first seven years of practice in Toronto, including five years with one of the country’s leading full-service law firms, and two specializing in national and cross-border class actions.
Charlotte specializes in complex class action litigation. She represents clients across Canada on a range of issues, including environmental, energy, and resources, human rights and constitutional law, investor and consumer protection, privacy and data protection, product liability, public law, labour and employment, and corporate-commercial disputes. Charlotte has appeared before all levels of court in Ontario and British Columbia, as well as several appearances at the Supreme Court of Canada.
Charlotte has a long-standing commitment to social impact, having lawyered, volunteered, and researched extensively on issues of constitutional and civil rights, feminist legal theory, diversity and inclusion, and access to justice. She is a champion and long-time volunteer for LEAF (Women’s Legal Education and Action Fund) and Pro Bono Ontario, and is a board member for the Centre for Food Sustainability, a community organization based on Vancouver Island that fosters regenerative agriculture projects and land stewardship.
Charlotte is also passionate about global economic transformation and positive systemic change. She is a lifelong learner on topics in social innovation, environmental sustainability, and responsible governance in the private sector. In addition to her legal degree, she holds a graduate diploma in Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability from the University of Toronto.
Out of the office, Charlotte is a lover of culture, movement, and the outdoors. She spends her time adventuring in the backcountry of Canada and the remote regions of the world -hiking, running, paddling, surfing, cycling, cooking, and exploring wherever she can.
