Adrienne Fanjoy (she/her) is an associate lawyer at Nelligan Law, and a member of our Labour and Employment groups.

Adrienne advises unions and their members on issues related to collective bargaining, human rights, grievances, and disciplinary proceedings. In her employment practice, she assists clients with a variety of workplace issues, including human rights issues, unjust dismissals, negotiation of employment contracts, and workplace investigations.

Adrienne’s approach to her practice comes from her passion for helping people. She is empathetic, compassionate, and a dedicated advocate for every one of her clients.

Originally from Ottawa, Adrienne obtained both her undergraduate and law degree at Queen’s University. There, she worked as a caseworker at with one of Queen’s legal clinics, where she provided legal assistance to low-income individuals. Her volunteer work was recognized in 2019, when she received the Brian Yealland Community Leadership Award for her work with marginalized youth. She was also the recipient of the Professor H.R.S. Scholarship for academic excellence in the subject of Evidence. She was called to the Bar in 2020.

Adrienne believes that law can be leveraged as a tool for creating a more equitable society. She strives to be actively anti-racist in both her practice and her personal life and supports the LGBTQ2S+ community. She is an active member of Nelligan Law’s Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Committee.

Outside of the office, Adrienne enjoys reading, spending time with friends and family, and searching for the best Thai food in Ottawa.
