Counsel, Barrister & Solicitor
Eric practices civil and commercial litigation with a focus on employment law, contract disputes, subrogation, and construction lien matters. This has afforded Eric the opportunity to appear for clients before all levels of the Ontario Courts, including multiple appearances before the Ontario Court of Appeal, and has drafted materials for the Supreme Court of Canada.
Prior to joining McCague Borlack, Eric articled and worked for the Honourable Ed Morgan, prior to his appointment to the Ontario Superior Court of Justice. He also worked as an associate at a boutique Toronto litigation firm where he acted for clients in a broad range of matters, developing skills in both oral/written advocacy as well as negotiating settlements in complex cases.
Keeping the best interests of his clients in mind, Eric prioritizes finding the most practical and efficient resolution to every matter. For this reason, Eric works closely with clients to determine when it is appropriate to fight an issue in Court and when to work with the other side to find a mutually agreeable alternative.
A former Canadian Comedy Award nominee, Eric still writes and produces comedy around Toronto to maintain his sense of humour and stay quick on his feet. He also enjoys exploring Toronto's new and unique restaurants, or just hanging out at home with his wife, and dog Ringo.
