Brendan's practice is built upon a passion for science and a zeal for advocacy. Trained as a synthetic chemist, Brendan brings the curiosity he nurtured for the natural world to dispute resolution, finding evermore creative yet pragmatic ways to advance his clients' cause.

Brendan began his journey in law as a patent litigator in the life sciences, but has expanded his litigation practice in recent years to tackle a diverse array of problems at the intersection of science and law.

Brendan has significant trial and appellate experience in the Federal Court, Federal Court of Appeal, Ontario Superior Court, Nova Scotia Supreme Court and Nova Scotia Court of Appeal. Brendan has also been heavily involved in domestic and international commercial arbitration as well as a number of matters before tribunals, including the Canadian International Trade Tribunal.

When Brendan wraps up his litigation matters for each day, you are most likely to find him in his home studio cooking up the hottest hip hop beats, or in his kitchen cooking up a hot meal for his greatest inspirations: his beloved wife and small pupper.
