Jacqueline Morrison, J.D.
I was raised in a very competitive family and from a young age was constantly practising and competing in as many sports as I could fit into my schedule. I swam at a National level for just over ten years and at University I played baseball, squash and football for my alma mater. Athletics taught me the value of hard work and efficiency and really shaped me into the person that I am today.
After graduating from University, I took some time away from school to experiment with some different job opportunities and to develop some career goals for my future.
During this time, I worked at a publically traded mining company, which exposed me to the mechanisms, processes and relationships by which a corporation is controlled and directed and helped to spark my interest in corporate law. Today I practice primarily corporate law and commercial real estate law and I love being able to help our clients with the unique challenges they face.
Another invaluable experience I had during this period was starting my own small business. This taught me to appreciate the importance of building strong professional relationships, while having a reputation that I was trustworthy, efficient and hard working. As I began my legal career, my aim was to build this same type of reputation as a lawyer.
I joined Baker & Company as a first year associate and am very happy to be working at a firm whose values aligned with my own. Having come from a large-firm platform, I can truly appreciate Baker & Company’s ability to cater to small and mid-sized businesses and the close relationships we have with our clients.
