Among his many successes, Jon worked extensively on the Sino-Forest matter in multiple jurisdictions including Ontario, Hong Kong, Singapore and China shepherding the company and certain independent directors through an internal investigation, an OSC investigation and regulatory proceeding, multiple class actions and ultimately a CCAA restructuring process that resulted in full releases for all of our clients in one of the largest frauds in Canadian history.


Jon is the lead partner responsible for Bennett Jones' relationship with Innocence Canada. In this capacity, he oversees teams of associates that manage wrongful conviction applications on a pro bono basis.


He is an active participant in the Cambridge Forum on International Enforcement of Judgement & Awards at Pennyhill Park, an annual invitation-only conference where thought leaders from jurisdictions around the world get together to discuss recent developments and the relevant laws from their respective jurisdictions.
