Elizabeth Van Den Eynden is Managing Partner of Mac Mac & Mac. That fact alone speaks to the high regard in which she is held by the 15 lawyers and 25 support staff of our law firm.
When not managing the growth of a law firm that has more then doubled in less then a decade, Liz spends much of her professional time between employment law and litigation. She is a problem solver and trusted advisor for employers seeking solutions to perennial labour, safety, and human rights challenges. She can shift seamlessly from a consensus building problem solver to a hard nosed and pragmatic defender of the client’s rights. She is gifted at always seeing the big picture that sometimes overwhelms the vision of her client or her opponent.
Elizabeth is an accomplished and highly competitive equestrian who travels the international circuit in pursuit of trophy gold. She brings that same competitive spirit to her chosen profession of law. Boundless energy. Genuine compassion for those who are victimized. A multi-tasker extraordinaire. Clients are confident knowing that Liz Van den Eynden is in their corner.
Liz received her BA from St. FX University in 1984 and her law degree from the University of New Brunswick in 1987. She has served as a member of Bar Council for the Nova Scotia Barristers' Society, as a member of the NSBS Discipline Committee and as Past-President of the Pictou County Barristers' Society. She is a former Chair of the Pictou County Residential Tenancies Board and a former member of the Pictou County Regional Assessment Appeal Court. She has been a lecturer of business law at St. Francis Xavier University and provides public legal education seminars on a variety of topics that introduce the law to laypersons. Liz has been President of the Pictou County Chamber of Commerce, Chair of the Highland Community Residential Services for Mentally Challenged, a member of the New Glasgow Rotary Club, Vice-Chair of the Aberdeen Hospital Foundation and volunteer legal counsel for Tearmann House for Battered Women.
