Andrea Plumb is a partner based in our London office. Her practice focus is assisting physicians with a wide variety of legal matters, including civil trials, civil appeals and Discipline Hearings before the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario. She has a particular interest in matters involving complex scientific evidence.
In 2018, Andrea was inducted as a Fellow in the American College of Trial Lawyers. The American College of Trial Lawyers is composed of preeminent members of the Trial Bar from the United States and Canada and is recognized as the leading trial lawyers organization in both countries. Fellowship is extended only by invitation, after careful investigation, to those experienced trial lawyers who have mastered the art of advocacy and whose professional careers have been marked by the highest standards of ethical conduct, professionalism, civility and collegiality. Membership can never be more than 1% of the total lawyer population of any state or province. Membership is limited to only those trial lawyers who are unquestionably and eminently qualified, in addition to being regarded as the best in their state/province. Qualifications must include high ethical and moral standards, as well as excellent character.
In 2010, Andrea was inducted as a Fellow in the Litigation Council of America. The Litigation Counsel of America is an invitation-only trial lawyer honorary society. Membership is limited to 3,500 Fellows, representing less than one half of one percent of American lawyers. Fellows are selected and invited into Fellowship after being evaluated for effectiveness and accomplishment in litigation and trial work, along with ethical reputation.
Andrea is also consistently recommended in Best Lawyer and Lexpert in the areas of health care law and medical negligence. From 2018 to 2020 she was recognized by Best Lawyer as Lawyer of the Year in Health Care Law for London/Windsor. Andrea has been recognized by Benchmark Canada as a Litigation Star since 2016. She is also ranked in the 2021 edition of Chambers Canada in the area of Healthcare - Contentious.
Andrea attributes her success to grit and perseverance. These qualities have also served her well with her athletic endeavours. Her recent accomplishments include mountain biking Top of the World (a challenging double black technical route down Whistler Mountain) and road cycling over seven days from Lake Louise to Whistler (travelling over 1,000 km and traversing the rockies, caribou and coastal mountain ranges). Andrea also attributes her success to her ability to put matters in perspective and think creatively. Long hours in the bike saddle allow for the reflective and contemplative thought that leads to solutions.
When she is not working (or riding her bike) Andrea enjoys engaging in adventure activities with her spouse and children.
