It is with sadness that we announce the passing of our retired partner Vern Rogers on October 17, 2020. Throughout his career, Vern Rogers exemplified how we should conduct ourselves as professionals. He was a real trial lawyer and expert on insurance coverage who argued cases at every level of our Ontario courts and the Supreme Court of Canada. He was unflinching in his representation of his clients, yet reveled in the counsel camaraderie that comes from fighting hard but fair cases. The profession has lost a great lawyer and we have lost a true mentor and a good friend.
