Professional Profile

Cameron’s areas of practice include complex commercial litigation, insurance-related matters, class actions, and civil fraud. He regularly appears before the Ontario Superior Court and the Court of Appeal for Ontario.

Cameron’s work involves the representation of institutional clients and individuals. He has successfully prosecuted civil fraud claims at trial and has won appeals before the Divisional Court and the Court of Appeal for Ontario. In a multi-million dollar debt collection fraud case, Cameron won two major contempt decisions against a defendant who was evading judgment as well as debtor-creditor examinations. In 2018, he presented the oral argument for the appellant before a nine-judge panel of the Supreme Court of Canada in a seminal language rights case.

Cameron is a traditional barrister who believes that trial experience is essential for civil litigators. He is also a forceful and tactical negotiator when the circumstances dictate. Cameron has successfully settled dozens of cases over the years in addition to taking claims to trial and to appellate courts.

Cameron periodically lectures on the topic of class actions at the McGill University Faculty of Law. He also contributes regularly to the BCF Class Action NetLetter, published on Lexis Nexis.

Cameron is recognized by the Law Society of Ontario as a certified specialist in Civil Litigation.

Education

Cameron graduated with a First Class Honours B.A. in History and a minor in Political Science from McGill University and obtained degrees with Distinction in Civil Law and Common Law, also from McGill University.
