Lawyer Brian Radnoff, who previously practised at Lerners LLP, is moving to Dickinson Wright LLP in Toronto.
Radnoff says he plans to leverage the firm's cross-border business to take advantage of the U.S.client base and, in turn, help Dickinson Wright LLP's Toronto office expand its reach in commercial litigation.
"Thankfully, given that we still have a free trade deal with the U.S., or at least we expect to, I think this is a really good opportunity for me to expand that area of my practise," Radnoff says. "Now that things are a bit more settled, I think that there's going to be a lot more investment going both ways. Any time you have business dealings, you have the potential for disputes, and you need people like myself ... My observation from reading has been there has been a lot of fear about investment in both countries because of the uncertainty, and I think a lot of that has now been resolved."
