I am an experienced mediator of complex commercial disputes, who has completed extensive mediator training at Harvard Law School and Pepperdine's Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution.
For over 25 years, I acted as counsel (for both plaintiffs and defendants) in corporate commercial litigation and class actions and in international and domestic arbitrations. I began my career on Bay Street in Toronto at a leading national firm where I practiced for several years. I later founded my own litigation boutiques, which were peer-recognized by LEXPERT as “repeatedly recommended” for corporate commercial litigation in Toronto.
I have been privileged to hold leadership positions in the legal community. I was a founding director of the Canadian Branch of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators and have served as a director of The Advocates’ Society and on the Executive of the Civil Litigation and Class Action sections of the Ontario Bar Association. The Law Society of Upper Canada and others have invited me to speak on legal ethics and professionalism issues at several programs.
