Allie Cuperfain articled at Mills & Mills LLP in 2020 before becoming an Associate in the Family Law Group and the Health Law Group in 2021.

Allie is able to assist clients with all of their family law needs. She is also able to support health care clients including health care practitioners, clinics and long-term care homes, with regulatory advice, policy creation and implementation, medical practice corporate structure guidance and government relations assistance. Additionally, Allie has a passion for fertility law and is prepared to assist clients in all aspects of the assisted human reproduction process from advising intended parents, sperm donors, egg donors and surrogates to contract drafting, negotiating and reviewing to resolving issues that arise following conception and after childbirth. As well, she can help fertility clinics navigate the myriad of unique legal issues and regulatory challenges they experience.

Allie received her Juris Doctor (cum laude) from the University of Ottawa’s Faculty of Law – Common Law in 2020. During law school, Allie worked as a research assistant on projects that focused on organ donations, surrogacy law and fertility clinic regulations. She also assisted with researching and editing the third edition of Families and the Law: Cases and Commentary by Mary Jane Mossman et al. For her major law school paper, Allie explored issues of parentage in surrogacy law, comparing Ontario, Quebec, Alberta, Israel and Talmudic legal interpretations on the topic. Additionally, Allie received a Technoship – a research position in the area of consumer protection for cellphone users. Allie also worked as a writing leader in the Faculty’s Legal Writing Academy during her second and third years of study. Given her interests in health law and regulatory issues, Allie did an internship at The Ottawa Hospital in the General Counsel’s Office. She also worked in the Ontario Securities Commission (OSC), General Counsel’s Office in the summer before her third year of law school.

In addition to her law degree, Allie received an Honours Bachelor of Arts from the University of Toronto with High Distinction and a Master of Professional Communication from Ryerson University. Allie was awarded a number of scholarships and awards while pursuing both of these degrees. Her Master’s research examined identity construction and its impact on stakeholder communications. Prior to attending law school, Allie worked in the field of communications for small businesses, not for profits and the OSC. At the OSC, Allie led and collaborated on various internal communications and external stakeholder outreach initiatives.
