Thereafter, Olivia moved back to her hometown of Winnipeg and joined DFS Kaneski UnRuh LLP as an articling student. Olivia is anticipated to be called to the Manitoba Bar in October 2023.
DFS Kaneski UnRuh LLP is the result of two firms merging in January of 2023, namely Deeley Fabbri Sellen LLP (“DFS”) and BD Oakes Jardine Kaneski UnRuh LLP (“BD Oakes”). The founding partners of DFS created the firm in 1979, known for dedicated and flexible client service, legal excellence and effectiveness, and commitment to giving back to the community. BD Oakes traces its history to 1974, becoming Booth Dennehy Ernst & Kelsch, acquiring Tupper & Adams (Manitoba’s oldest firm), and evolving into BD Oakes in 2019, carrying on a history of providing a wide range of legal services in Manitoba and Northwest Ontario.Join our Team
