Former Supreme Court of Canada Justice joins Osler

Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt LLP has announced that the Honourable Marshall Rothstein, QC has joined the partnership and will be based in Vancouver.


Marshall Rothstein’s prodigious body of work has shaped the Canadian business law landscape. His legal career began as a civil litigator in private practice and spanned a 23-year tenure on the bench, with the last nine years on Canada’s highest court. Throughout his legal and judicial career, Marshall has authored more than 100 judgments and arbitral decisions on domestic and cross-border cases of commercial significance and complexity. Within Canada’s business community, he is regarded as a judge and commercial arbitrator with great wisdom and expertise in dispute resolution, including M&A, tax, competition, intellectual property and issues in the transportation and energy sectors.

By adding Marshall to our pre-eminent tax, competition, commercial and regulatory disputes practices, we can provide tremendous value to our clients and their business challenges,’ said Dale Ponder, Osler’s Managing Partner and Chief Executive.
