Katherine Cooligan | Borden Ladner Gervais LLP | Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
KATHERINE COOLIGAN



"Balance is adjusting to competing demands and knowing it always averages out."

          She has two full-time jobs, as the Regional Managing Partner in Ottawa for Canada's largest national law firm, Borden Ladner Gervais (BLG), and running a highly fluid, crisis-driven family law litigation practice — all while raising three children, as a single mom.
          As a highly successful lawyer and certified specialist in family law, Katherine Cooligan has always adapted to the needs of clients, her firm and family.
          Her adaptability, focus and entrepreneurial drive made it easy for BLG to select her for this senior management position — the only female currently holding this position.
          Katherine may sound like a superhero but she says the 'secret' to her success is simple — integrating the priorities in the various aspects of her life.
          Surrounded by an exceptional team and great family support, Katherine doesn’t define work-life balance as 50/50. When trial preparation consumes weekday evenings, homework is done at the office as well. Katherine and her kids work together to achieve their success.
