More Information:

Eric, a key figure at his firm, serves as the co-leader of the Business Reorganization & Insolvency Group, embodying the rare blend of a business-oriented litigator. His approach is distinctively pragmatic, always aiming for solutions that not only resolve legal challenges efficiently but also advance his clients' business interests and objectives. His in-depth understanding of his clients' industries and their strategic priorities allows for a collaborative partnership, striving for outcomes that exceed expectations.

Esteemed by major Canadian entities such as financial institutions, accounting firms, pension funds, and more, Eric is the go-to expert for business law and insolvency issues, offering valuable insights and guidance. Additionally, as one of the representatives for TAGLaw, a global network of independent law firms and accounting firms, Eric plays a pivotal role in managing litigation engagements worldwide, facilitating a global exchange of legal services.

Eric's practice spans a wide array of insolvency matters, representing various stakeholders in restructurings, bankruptcies, and enforcement actions. His expertise extends into commercial litigation, dealing with banking issues, shareholder disputes, real estate litigation, and more. His diverse civil litigation portfolio includes cases in defamation, tax law, and environmental law, among others.

One of his notable cases, Jane Doe v. The Metropolitan Toronto Police Force, set a legal precedent in Canada, establishing a duty of care by the police to the public. This landmark case, which concluded with significant damages awarded to Jane Doe and formal apologies from Toronto's governing bodies, highlighted Eric's adeptness in navigating complex legal terrains.

Fluent in both of Canada's official languages and with roots in Montreal, Eric's broad legal practice is complemented by his rich background, including a unique stint as a caddie in Scotland before resuming his legal career at Blaneys as an associate in 1996, post his articling period and law studies at the University of Toronto.
