How Tijana serves our clients
The newest member of our team, Tijana Micanovic has joined us after distinguishing herself as a University of Toronto Faculty of Law student and completing her articling with us this past year. Since she first joined us as a summer student, Tijana has worked with each of our lawyers in all of our diverse practice areas. She is now continuing to work on a variety of files while building her own practice focusing largely on corporate, employment and estates law.
Tijana has returned as an Associates after completing her Articles with us in 2016-2017 and summering with us in 2015. Before joining Houser Henry, she earned an Honours Bachelor of Arts with High Distinction from the University of Toronto and also summered at a human rights and employment firm. During law school, Tijana was an assistant caseworker in the refugee division of the Downtown Legal Services clinic, an executive member of the school’s litigation association, and a member of a working group that partnered with the International Committee of the Red Cross.
Drawn to Houser Henry’s progressive approach, Tijana likes using her legal training to bring about positive outcomes for entrepreneurial clients, not merely to mitigate unfavourable outcomes. She has learned that the most satisfied clients are those who feel understood and that regular, meaningful communication imparts a clear understanding of exactly what lawyers can accomplish for people.
A personal perspective
Tijana is fascinated with social psychology: the study of individual behaviour in social situations. Through books such as Malcolm Gladwell’s Outliers, psychology studies, Internet blogs, and personal observation, she seeks to understand why we tend to overestimate our self-understanding and underestimate the influence of others on our behaviour, and to learn the social patterns, irrational factors and hidden forces that make us tick.
