A meticulous but introverted lawyer who was overlooked on Bay Street — shunted into a back room — so she left and drew up plans for a start-up on Queen Street. She found two partners, her best friend from law school, Adam, and Lilly, a star litigator looking for freedom, and together they formed RDL Legal. Now she has an equal voice. Originally from Montreal, Mina has made Toronto her home. It’s the city that enabled her to put some distance between her family and herself and finally come into her own. Often underestimated, Mina is the bedrock of this firm and the one who holds them all together.
