His clients range from multi-national corporations and privately held family businesses to entrepreneurs and individuals.

Eric provides legal advice and representation on a wide variety of commercial matters including shareholder disputes, contractual disputes, real estate and construction-related litigation, asset and debt recovery, occupiers’ liability act claims, coverage, and professional negligence. He also has experience in insurance defence matters including property damage, coverage disputes, priority disputes, and bodily injury.

He regularly appears before the Ontario Court of Appeal, Superior Court of Justice, and Small Claims Court on motions, applications, pre-trials, trials, and appeals. In addition, he represents clients in various forums of alternative dispute resolution including mediation.
