Ontario Bar Association Recognizes Michael Rosenberg for Exceptional Contribution to the Practice of Law in Ontario
Toronto, March 25, 2019 — McCarthy Tétrault congratulates partner Michael Rosenberg, the 2019 recipient of the Ontario Bar Association’s (OBA) Heather McArthur Memorial Young Lawyers' Award.
The award recognizes exceptional contributions and achievements by a young lawyer in the field of continuing legal education or development of the law for the benefit of the profession or the citizens of Ontario.
“Michael is not only an outstanding litigator, but a generous mentor invested in the professional and academic development of young litigators,” said Caroline Zayid National Practice Group Leader, Litigation. “A valued member of the firm, I am extremely proud of his dedication to promoting access to justice and law reform within Canada.”
Michael’s litigation practice focuses on complex commercial disputes, class actions, criminal law and investigations. In addition to his private practice, he is an adjunct professor at the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Law, where he teaches class actions.
Dedicated to addressing a range of social justice issues, Michael leads the McCarthy Tétrault team representing the Canadian Civil Liberties Association in its successful challenge to the constitutionality of prolonged solitary confinement in Canadian prisons. He also serves as the director of McCarthy Tétrault’s initiative to provide pro bono representation on criminal trials and appeals in partnership with the University of Toronto’s Downtown Legal Services legal aid clinic.
The award will be presented at the Annual OBA Awards Gala on April 17, 2019 at the Omni King Edward Hotel in Toronto.
