Mitch would have appeared before all levels of court by now, but his written application to the Supreme Court of Canada to deny leave was successful! He is a frequent speaker on insurance defence at industry events and is the editor of the firm’s RISK (Rulings Insurers Should Know) Report. Mitch originally dreamed of being an actor but told his relieved parents that if it didn’t work out he’d be a lawyer instead.
