Day in the life pics

After work-hours, I’ll often go to dinner with a colleague or to a networking event and catch up on the latest trends and notable cases in our field.

During my first year of Law School, I met the managing partner of the firm at a social event and was able to have an engaging conversation because of my economics and business background. I started with the firm shortly after that as a part time law clerk, then a summer student, then an articling student, and finally now as an associate.

At 4:30pm once the stock markets in Toronto and New York have ended trading for the day, I do my daily review to ascertain if there were any public companies whose activities may be harmful to investors and warrant further investigation.

My day generally begins around 8:30am. After my morning coffee, I answer any emails from the night before and then begin the day’s activities. That could entail anything from due diligence for a potential action, working on a statement of claim, or writing a factum for an upcoming motion. Due to the unpredictable nature of securities class action, there can be a lot of variety on what I am working on day to day.


Around 12:30pm I’ll typically go for lunch. Depending on the day and my workload, I may have a quicker lunch at my desk, or go for a longer working lunch with the principles or other associates at the firm to discuss ongoing actions.
