Colin Carruthers

Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Colin went from benchtop to barrister, earning a Bachelor of Medical Sciences and a Master of Science in Anatomy and Cell Biology before attending Osgoode Hall for law school. He now brings his passion for pharma and (bio)tech to his legal practice, assisting clients with regulatory and litigation matters. Colin's love for gadgets and passion for travel have also helped to expand his government relations practice, particularly in the gaming sector.

Colin is a product of the Gilbert's farm system, having summered and articled with us. Known in the office for his funky socks and pocket squares, on game days you will often find Colin donning blue and ditching his desk for the Dome to support the Toronto Blue Jays.
