Tough began her legal career in 1980 at Blakes, where she made partner in 1984. In 1999, though, she left the firm to pursue a boutique litigation practice with Kathryn Podrebarac. A long-time Osgoode Hall adjunct professor and former director of the Advocates’ Society, Tough was elected as a Law Society bencher in 2007.

Tough will be awarded the 2010 President’s Award, in recognition of her outstanding service within the profession and her leadership role in advancing the position of women lawyers, at the WLAO’s awards gala on Wednesday, June 2 at Le Royal Meridien King Edward Hotel in Toronto.
