Luciana Brasil*


Luciana Brasil was a partner at Branch MacMaster and led its class action practice. Born and raised in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Luciana had both civil and common law legal qualifications with a Bachelor of Civil Law degree obtained from the Mackenzie University in 1993 and a Bachelor of Law degree obtained in 1998 from the University of Victoria, in British Columbia.

Luciana’s practice was almost exclusively in the area of class actions, where she acted for both plaintiffs and defendants. In this dual practice, Luciana understood the strategies employed by both sides and had either worked with or against all leading Canadian class action counsel in national class actions.

Luciana appeared before all levels of Court, including the Supreme Court of Canada. In addition, Luciana’s national practice required appearances before Courts in other jurisdictions, including Alberta, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Quebec, Ontario, and New York.

Luciana taught class actions to law students at the Allard School of Law (University of British Columbia) with Chelsea D. Hermanson.

Luciana spoke Portuguese fluently and maintained a membership in the Brazilian Bar Association (Ordem dos Advogados do Brasil), Sao Paulo Chapter. Luciana had a lifelong passion for equestrian pursuits and volunteered with STaRS (Southlands Therapeutic Riding Society), a registered non-profit society that provided therapeutic riding opportunities for persons with disabilities. Luciana shared her Vancouver home with her family and their Rhodesian Ridgeback dogs

Luciana retired from the practice of law in the Spring of 2024.
