Relentless in the pursuit of his clients' interests, Samuel is a detail-oriented and analytical litigator.
From the initial client meeting to the conclusion of litigation, Samuel considers how to get the best result possible in an efficient and cost-effective manner, having regard to the complexity of the matter. Whether arguing a case before a judge or negotiating settlements, Samuel's calm, determined, and practical approach provides his clients a tactical advantage in complex disputes.
Samuel has been an associate in our Litigation and Dispute Resolution group since 2019, where he practices in the area of civil and commercial litigation.
Samuel has a broad practice and has represented clients in all levels of court in Ontario, in tribunals, and in mediations and arbitrations. He has acted in and advised clients regarding commercial and residential real estate disputes, employment disputes, construction lien and deficiency claims, estate litigation, tax disputes, shareholder disputes, and receiverships.
Prior to joining Robins Appleby in 2019, Samuel was a judicial law clerk at the Ontario Superior Court of Justice in Toronto, where he assisted judges with legal research, writing, and editing of decisions. Learning how judges think and operate provides him with unique insight into the litigation process.
