Eric joined Clyde & Co in 2017 after pursuing a career in international arbitration at global and boutique law firms in Paris, Toronto, Miami, and Brussels. His experience with multiple legal systems and a pragmatic approach to the resolution of disputes allows him to find creative solutions and to understand in detail the business environment of his clients.
He specialises in the management of litigation matters in the areas of construction, professional liability and financial risk, in Canada and in the United States, for insurers based mainly in London. His practice is focused on providing opinions and recommendations on risks and strategies. He is also responsible for coordinating and managing the information received from defence counsel and clients, while maintaining relations with insurers. In addition, his practice includes providing insurance coverage opinions in various sectors, including cyber risk, and insurance matters with an international law aspect.
His curiosity and appetite to dig for deeper understanding led him to pursue a LL.M. in international law, obtained on full scholarship from the International council for commercial arbitration (ICCA), at the University of Miami. Eric holds both common and civil law degrees, with distinction, from McGill University, along with a B.A. in economics and honors political science. He was called to the Quebec Bar and the Law Society of Ontario in 2011 and to the New York Bar in 2015. He is the recipient of numerous awards, including an honorable mention for his second place finish in the 2016 Paris Very Young Arbitrators arbitral award drafting competition.
When he is not at the office, Eric is probably with friends or his family playing tabletop or online strategy games.
