Charlotte K.B. Harman is an associate at Branch MacMaster LLP. She relocated to Vancouver in 2022 after spending her first seven years of practice in Toronto, Ontario, 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’s focus is in complex class action litigation on issues of profound public importance. She represents clients across Canada on a range of subject matter, including environmental, energy, and resources, human rights and constitutional law, investor and consumer protection, product liability, labour and employment, and corporate-commercial disputes. Charlotte has appeared before all levels of court in Ontario, as well as several appearances at the Supreme Court of Canada. She also supports Branch McMaster LLP in its insurance law practice.
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.
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, having recently completed a graduate diploma at the University of Toronto in Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability.
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.
