- About Daniel
Dan received his Bachelor of Commerce Degree from the University of Guelph and his Law Degree from the University of Western Ontario. Since being called to the Bar in 2000, Dan has had extensive experience and has successfully represented a diverse range of clients (i.e. franchisors, franchisees, municipalities, institutions, individuals, shareholders, corporations) in a variety of franchise, corporate, commercial and construction matters. Through his work, Dan has gained a reputation for taking a business approach to resolving disputes and for being a tenacious advocate who achieves the proper result.
Dan’s team is dedicated to ensuring that his client’s needs are met in a timely, efficient and cost effective manner.
Dan represents Franchisors with respect to risk management and acts as their “quarter back” for a wide range of issues that arise in franchise systems and is often consulted to co-ordinate the legal, business, and operational aspects of franchising. He has significant experience representing both Franchisors and Franchisees to resolve disputes. Dan understands that Franchisors and Franchisees are not in the business of litigation and therefore a result oriented approach is necessary to achieve the best possible result in a prompt and cost effective manner.
In addition to providing dispute resolution and litigation services, Dan advises and assists Municipal and Educational Institutions with respect to tendering and assists with the preparation of tender documents. Dan also provides post-tender support to ensure that all facets of the tender process are compliant.
Dan has successfully represented clients in Tribunal, Court, Mediation and Arbitration settings, and has won cases in various courts including the Superior Court of Justice, Divisional Court, the Court of Appeal of Ontario and the Federal Court of Canada.
