JML is thrilled to announce that Vanessa S. Werden has been recognized as one of the Top 40 Under 40 in Canadian Construction by On-Site Magazine and SitePartners.

Vanessa is a construction lawyer, providing legal services to construction industry participants across Western Canada and the Northwest Territories. From family-owned contracting companies to construction managers, developers and national top-tier contractors, Vanessa provides contract advice and advocacy services on contracts, builders liens, mid and post-project disputes. Vanessa is regarded by many as a “force of nature”.  She is a skillful and ardent advocate for her clients, to whom she provides direct, clear, honest and practical advice. She serves the legal and construction communities as President of Canadian Construction Women and Vice-Chair of the CBABC Construction Law Section. She manages to do all of this with a 3-year-old and a 6-month-old in tow. Congratulations, Vanessa! Thank you for the continued contributions you make to our team.

There is no shortage of talent in Canada’s construction industry and we are so proud that Vanessa has been selected among other accomplished professionals who are working hard to move the construction industry forward.
