Emma Ouellet Lizotte

Articling Student


Emma returns to BLG’s Toronto office as an articling student after summering at the firm in 2019 and 2020.

Emma completed her BCom and JD at the University of Ottawa. She graduated summa cum laude with the Gold Medal for the highest standing in the JD program. While pursuing her studies, Emma was a Junior Analyst at Nanos Research and a Policy Analyst at the Federation of Law Societies of Canada. In law school, Emma was the Editor-in-Chief, French Articles of the Ottawa Law Review, a Research Assistant for a legal ethics professor, and a Teaching Assistant for an alternative dispute resolution professor. Emma is fluent in English and French.

Emma chose BLG because of the extent of its corporate, competition, M&A and investment management practice. She particularly appreciates the importance BLG places on mentorship.

As a show jumping equestrian athlete, Emma trained and competed across Québec and Ontario while achieving academic excellence over the last several years. She is a three-time provincial champion and three-time competitor at the Canadian championships at the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair.

In her spare time, Emma enjoys trying out Jamie Oliver recipes, hiking and participating in local charity runs, horseback riding, petting her wiener dog, and spending quality time with family and friends.
