I am a lawyer in private practice, currently at a small downtown Toronto firm, after spending my first dozen or so years at large national firms. I focus on resolving problems for clients in a variety of regulatory, administrative, and public law areas. I advise them on complicated commercial matters, and act for them in proceedings before courts and administrative tribunals, particularly those involving highly regulated industries or cross-border issues. My practice has elements of both solicitor work and litigation, ranging from complex opinions, to written and oral advocacy, to contract negotiation, to regulatory compliance.
I have practised extensively in nuclear and environmental law, telecommunications and broadcasting, product liability, health law, and professional responsibility, among other areas. I also have substantial experience in disputes involving commercial arbitration or a foreign element, such as the enforcement of foreign judgments and arbitral awards, international judicial assistance, and jurisdictional disputes.
