He now brings his passion for pharma and (bio)tech to his legal practice, assisting clients with regulatory and litigation matters.

He has provided subject matter expertise and developed course content, including lecture videos, quizzes, assignments, and readings, for the online course, Introduction to Trademarks for Creative Entrepreneurs as part of eCampusOntario's Virtual Learning Strategy (VLS), in collaboration with OCAD University and University of Windsor’s Faculty of Law.
