Ben practices commercial and public law litigation with the firm.

Before joining the firm, Ben worked as a law clerk for the Honourable David Stratas, judge of the Federal Court of Appeal. There he researched points of law, prepared legal memoranda, and assisted Justice Stratas in a wide range of areas, including tax, trade law, competition law, access to information law, and constitutional law.

While obtaining his JD from Queen’s University, Ben obtained the second highest overall standing in his class. He participated in two competitive moots, both times winning awards for the quality of his team’s written materials. He also participated in Queen’s Legal Aid, and was recognized as one of the graduating students who made the most significant contribution to the mission of that organization.

Ben has appeared before the Federal Court, the Federal Court of Appeal, the Ontario Superior Court of Justice, the Ontario Court of Justice, and the Ontario Small Claims Court.

In his spare time, Ben tries his hand at brewing beer, but keeps a six pack from one of Ottawa’s fine microbreweries in the fridge just in case.
