Last year, she led pivotal transactions for corporate and private equity clients in a range of sectors as well as for Alaska Native regional and village corporations, contributing to the success of Alaska Natives and Alaska’s sustained economic growth.

Canfield was selected to The Legal 500’s 2023 M&A Powerlist—USA Region, has been named one of “America’s Leading Lawyers for Business” by Chambers & Partners USA for 2020 through 2022, and was inducted into The National Black Lawyers Top 40 Under 40 in 2019.

Canfield also uses her legal skills to make a difference in her local community and has an active pro bono practice. She is a volunteer attorney with the American Bar Association’s Free Legal Answers Program, a ground-breaking online platform through which she provides free legal assistance to Alaskans on an emergency basis. She further supports under-represented communities through her participation in Alaska WINGS (Working Interdisciplinary Networks of Guardianship Stakeholders), an innovative and collaborative approach to reforming state guardianship systems.

A Hall of Fame softball player at Delaware State University, a Division I school, Canfield mentors girls from her hometown through her involvement with the Alaska softball community.
