Juliette Omonigho 


…Juliette is a qualified lawyer from two jurisdictions, including Canada. She practiced law in two other jurisdictions before moving to Canada. Prior to joining Osuji and Smith, Juliette served as in-house counsel in one of the largest oil and gas companies in the Gulf region. Her primary responsibility was ensuring legal compliance after the company terminated a  multi-billion-dollar contract with a foreign company.  Juliette played a vital role in the company’s success at  ICSID (International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes) and is very proud of that achievement.


Her daily responsibilities also included reviewing and taking part in negotiating oil and gas contracts, drafting legal documents (e.g., NDAs) and advising staff on legal matters.

Juliette was part of a small award-winning team responsible for the Company’s signatory with the UN Global Compact. This submission committed the company to sustainability with Labor, Human Rights, Environment and Anti-corruption. It’s the world’s largest global corporate sustainability initiative.


Due to her hard work and commitment to true inclusion, Juliette was honoured to be one of a tiny group of employees to attend a diversity workshop with the directors of the multi-billion-dollar oil and gas company. She was a leading team member that initiated policies to enhance non-discriminatory practices, primarily related to pay equality and upward mobility regardless of race, in a company that employed over 66 nationalities.


Juliette was the first person in the company’s history to organize and host an all-female employee workshop directed at women’s safety in the workplace. She also co-planned and co-hosted several team-building and motivational events within her directorate. Her activities were featured in a national magazine and in the company’s periodicals on several occasions. She was recognized for her work and received nominations and awards.

In Canada, Juliette has experience in assisting clients in civil litigation matters, commercial transactions, family law, Wills and Estate and particularly Employment and Labor law, helping employers and employees on issues relating to wrongful dismissal claims, constructive dismissal claims, human rights complaints and reviewing and advising on employment-related agreements/policies and procedures on a wide range of workplace issues.


Juliette is an ardent volunteer in her Christian organization, and she has helped and mentored several women worldwide to improve their lives with the help of bible education.

Juliette tries to see the big picture. She is well travelled and has worked or volunteered in 5 countries and four continents, giving her a unique global perspective and intuitive insight and understanding of people of various backgrounds. Her easy communication skills, warmth, positive energy, and passion for the legal profession make her a great asset to our team. Juliette was awarded the collaborator award for her natural ability to work with diverse people.


Juliette is artistically creative. She loves to design events and create stylish and efficient living spaces. Her other hobbies include travelling, painting landscapes and portraits, reading, meditating, and taking long leisurely walks.

What People Say About US


“Charles was fantastic to work with! He was very professional, made sure I knew my options and supportive to the end. He successfully handled my employment matter and I would hire Charles again if needed.”


Aniedi Davidson at Osuji & Smith made our experience of incorporating interesting, accessible and hassle free. She took the time required to help us understand the process thoroughly and was very kind and friendly. Incorporating felt like a large task to us and she made it easy! I would highly recommend her services to anyone looking to incorporate their business.


Quite frankly, Osuji & Smith is the best. Charles and his team handled my Divorce process with ease. Their level of flexibility and professionalism is second to none! Would advise the general public to contact Osuji & Smith for all their legal needs.


I would like to thank Nitin Srivastava of Osuji & Smith for his help on my recent case. He was very professional and knowledgeable and helped me to make the proper decision regarding my case. I would recommend Nitin to anyone needing advice on labour and employment law.


My partner and I had a meeting with Charles today. He was very welcoming and so full of knowledge! Not only that but most importantly, honest. He helped us understand our situation and did so without us retaining him and charging us a ton of money! Such a different experience than any other lawyer I had dealt with in the city. He did not make us feel as if we were just a dollar sign and actually seemed to care. That is not common in lawyers. You’re awesome Charles and we would most definitely recommend you to anyone!

Charles is a very patient, considerate, hardworking lawyer that works 24/7 for the best interest of his client. He has been handling all my legal matters and has done an amazing job.

I came to Osuji & Smith to review a commercial lease for my new business location. Charles and Alessia thoroughly reviewed my lease with me so that I understood it, and provided me specific notes about the present lease to take back to the landlord. Charles exceeded my expectations by also giving me additional tips on legal contracts on top of sharing some business advice that will be invaluable to the future of my business and my success as a new business owner. I feel the value I received from this office is why I will surely choose them again in the future.


I worked solely with Charles on an employment case that was very personal to me. From the get go he displayed nothing but the highest standard of respect, knowledge, case fact competency and actually cares about your interest & well being.
