Natalie MacDonald has been listed in The 2020 Canadian Legal Lexpert® Directory* as a top practitioner who is repeatedly recommended in employment law in Canada.

Her biography on the Lexpert directory is as follows:

“Natalie MacDonald, owner of MacDonald & Associates, a boutique employment law firm in Toronto, was named the “Employment Lawyer of the Year” in 2018 at the National HR Awards, following the success of her landmark case Galea v. Wal-Mart in which she achieved the highest amounts of extraordinary damages in Canadian employment law. In 2019, she was, again, so named by Finance Monthly Magazine. That win solidified her expertise on extraordinary damages, as she is also author of the textbook Extraordinary Damages in Canadian Employment Law, critically acclaimed as an authority on the subject. Previously, Natalie was selected as one of the leading labour and employment law practitioners in the world, according to Expert Guides Women in Business Law, and has repeatedly been named among Canada’s top employment law practitioners since 2009. She was nominated as one of Canada’s Top 25 Legal Influencers as a Changemaker and Litigator. Before winning Galea, she set another precedent in Antidormi v. Blue Pumpkin Software Inc., regarding the inducement of employees to organizations, achieving extraordinary damages, and cited as support for Galea.”
