Dan Pinnington Appointed LAWPRO President & CEO

On behalf of everyone at Slaw, I’d like to extend a warm congratulations to our colleague Dan Pinnington on his appointment as President and CEO of LAWPRO.

Dan has written with us here at Slaw for nearly a decade. His commentary has covered an enormous range of topics related to law practice management, legal technology, fraud and claims prevention (to name a few). But most of all, Dan is a communicator — speaker, blogger, book author, teacher, magazine editor, and conference chair. While I’m sure there will be a learning curve in the days ahead, Dan has spent an entire career in preparation. He’s a visionary leader and will excel in this new role.

A copy of the full news release may be found on the LAWPRO website.


  1. Spectacular news for Dan, but also a recognition of the major role that practice management and loss prevention play in helping lawyers practice professionally and avoid problems.

    Dan has pioneered that work not merely in Ontario, but in conferences across North America, through his work with the American Bar Association, and centrally as an indefatigable contributor to Slaw for a decade. Dan is in a unique position to help the profession address the future that confronts them.

    His thoughts on the nature of that challenge are set out in https://www.practicepro.ca/2018/01/perspectives-on-the-future-of-law/ which should be mandatory reading for law society regulators across the country.

  2. My sincerest congratulations Dan!! Hoping you will still be able to continue your blogging here at Slaw and elsewhere – I always find your posts informative and helpful! Enjoy your new role.
