About Nathalie Boutet

Nathalie Boutet is a family lawyer, accredited mediator, and certified Family Enterprise Advisor™

With more than 32 years of experience, Nathalie is highly skilled in all aspects of family law, from negotiating prenuptial and cohabitation agreements to property division, spousal and child support, and parenting plans. (See Services) She has successfully represented thousands of clients, helping them to achieve their goals with her expertise, compassion, and strategic thinking.

Nathalie specializes in situations involving business owners, executives and professionals, as well as situations challenged by difficult personalities and complex personal and financial circumstances. Nathalie is also comfortable working with families where there are addiction challenges.

Nathalie is committed to the practices of Collaborative Divorce and Mediated Divorce, because they are proven to be the best methods for effective and respectful family dispute resolution.

Her commitment is rooted in the tremendous value that a collaborative out-of-court separation and divorce process can provide compared to lengthy, confrontational court battles. Out-of-court processes allow the couple to keep from losing control of the process and the costs, instead of relinquishing decision making to an arbitrator or judge.

As a co-founder of a successful education services business with her husband, Nathalie also understands a family’s unique needs when a business is involved. She is one of only a small number of Canadian family law lawyers to be certified as a Family Enterprise Advisor™. Her knowledge of all aspects of business ownership, various share structures and corporate financing helps entrepreneurs develop strategies to preserve the business – often the major source of income and net worth – from the negative impacts of separation and divorce.

A pioneer in the field of Neuro Family Law©, Nathalie also helps legal professionals better understand and work with their clients to enable a less painful experience for separating partners and their children. Her calm yet confident approach fosters good working relationships as she guides you through the complicated family law system, particularly in situations challenged by difficult personalities.

Nathalie is a past chair of Collaborative Practice Toronto, and a Deputy Judge of the Small Claims Court, Toronto Region, and Co-Founder and Member of the Board of Directors of NEXT Integrative Minds Life Sciences Inc.

Fluent in English and French, Nathalie is married, has a daughter and enjoys a wide range of outdoor activities including downhill skiing, biking, hiking and ice hockey.
