New Partner Joins Pallett Valo’s Construction Law Practice

October 3, 2022

Pallett Valo LLP, the largest law firm in Peel Region, is growing its already established Construction Law practice by welcoming new partner, Catherine DiMarco.

Catherine, a highly regarded lawyer with more than 17 years of construction and general civil litigation experience, was one of the founding partners of a boutique construction law firm in Toronto and, prior to that, a partner at a prominent Toronto-based full-service firm.

Certified by the Law Society of Ontario as a specialist in construction law, she represents owners, general contractors, subcontractors and suppliers, as well as design and engineering professionals on claims, or on the defence of claims. In addition, Catherine has defended public authorities, including municipalities, in matters involving allegations of negligent design, supervision and inspection.

In 2020, Catherine was named as a Fellow of the Construction Lawyers’ Society of America. She is vice-chair and executive member of the Ontario Bar Association Construction and Infrastructure Law Section; a past executive committee member, board member, and vice-chair of the Manufacturers, Suppliers and Services Council of the Canadian Construction Association; and a past member of the Executive Committee and Board of Directors of the Canadian Construction Association.

John Russo, Pallett Valo’s Managing Partner said, “We are excited to welcome Catherine DiMarco to our firm. I am confident that her experience, expertise, and well-established client relationships will further solidify our position as a market leader in construction law.”
