Prior to joining Rousseau Mazzuca LLP, Broghan articled at a mid-sized business law firm. She spent her second-year summer at that firm and her first-year summer with Parkdale Community Legal Services in the employment law division. Broghan was called to the Bar in 2019.
In her construction law practice, Broghan represents unions, project managers, and both unionized and non-unionized contractors, subcontractors, and suppliers. Broghan drafts and mediates collective agreements and manages all phases of construction litigation, including, among other things, contract negotiation, delay claims, deficiency claims, construction liens, grievance referrals, and certification applications. Broghan routinely appears before the Ontario Labour Relations Board and the Superior Court of Justice.
While much of Broghan’s practice is in the area of construction law, she also has a background in labour and employment law, human rights, and commercial litigation. In addition to the above venues, Broghan has appeared before the Divisional Court, the Commercial List, the Human Rights Tribunal, and the Small Claims Court on a variety of civil litigation matters.
Broghan obtained her J.D. from Osgoode Hall Law School and was awarded a Student Honour Award for her outstanding contribution. She obtained her Honours Bachelor of Arts degree from Carleton University where she double majored in Legal Studies and Human Rights and minored in Women’s and Gender Studies. Broghan received the Gerhard Herzberg Scholarship for Academic Excellence and graduated with High Distinction.
At Osgoode, Broghan was appointed Vice President of OUTLaws, a professional organization for LGBTQ+ law students, and continues to be actively involved in the community. In her spare time, Broghan enjoys long-distance running, reading, and playing electric guitar. She is a devoted fan of the Blue Jays, Raptors, and the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Broghan works through each problem in a clear-sighted, holistic, and systematic manner. Broghan is a confident speaker and negotiator who understands that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to oral advocacy.
Broghan’s ability to see the bigger picture rather than get caught up in the details is exceptional. She is articulate and her analysis is sound.
