an associate at Wardle Daley Bernstein Bieber LLP where, amongst other things, I:

acted for an income fund, its trustees and the fund’s captive company in an urgent application alleging oppression, breach of trust and breach of fiduciary duty;

was part of the team which negotiated a stay of proceedings for over 60 lawyers made third parties to a certified class action by a defendant law firm alleged to have acted negligently and in a conflict of interest.



I have successfully argued cases before all levels of court in Ontario, the British Columbia Supreme Court and many administrative tribunals (including the OSC, IIROC, MFDA and
the Licence Appeal Tribunal.) I have also acted in domestic and international arbitrations.

seconded to the OSC for nine months as an articling student to assist on the trial of one of the largest quasi-criminal prosecutions for insider trading and misleading disclosure in Canadian history;

an associate at Gowlings LLP where, amongst other things, I represented:

institutional investors in support of a corporate transaction which proceeded despite: (i) Staff’s attempt to have the OSC cease trade it; and (ii) the objections of activist institutional investors’ at the fairness hearing;

creditors of a public company and its receiver in a class action to recover almost a billion dollars from its auditor which, amongst other things, failed to detect a fraud perpetrated by an officer and director; and

a telecommunications company in a series of urgent injunction applications against its fiercest competitor over misleading advertising;
