Best Lawyer ListingSince being called to the Bar in 1978, Paul has established an extensive property, casualty, and special risks practice acting primarily for the insurance industry. Paul has built his reputation via the results he achieves on complex matters involving national and international issues with substantial quantum at risk.

Paul is regularly retained by large corporations on their self-insured retention programs and in all forms of coverage disputes, including excess, umbrella, and reinsurance issues.

Paul’s practice initially involved litigation and trial advocacy and more recently has expanded to include all forms of alternative dispute resolution. He also frequently acts for clients on coroner’s inquests and at hearings involving regulatory and enforcement proceedings. Additionally, Paul has experienced considerable success in the pursuit of major subrogated claims, and he is considered a pioneer in the defence of class action lawsuits in the Province of Ontario. 

Lexpert, a Canadian legal publication and directory, lists Paul as a repeatedly recommended Commercial Insurance Litigation lawyer and in 2012, Paul was added to the Best Lawyers listing in the area of Personal Injury Litigation.

Paul was a principal founding member of Canadian Litigation Counsel (“CLC”), a national affiliation of independent law firms providing all forms of litigation services to the insurance industry and other public and private institutions.
