News Nov 16, 2020

McMillan LLP is pleased to announce that Adam Chisholm and Jeffrey Levine, partners in the firm’s Toronto office, have been recognized as a Leading Lawyers Under 40 as winners of Lexpert’s 2020 Rising Stars Awards.

Finalists from law firms and in-house legal departments across Canada were nominated by peers on criteria such as professional achievements, community involvement and client service strategy. Lexpert’s distinguished advisory panel carefully considered the contributions of each to select this year’s winners.

Adam Chisholm is a litigator in McMillan’s Commercial Litigation Group with expertise in administrative law and privacy and data protection law. An accomplished securities litigator, Adam represents clients in contested transactions, investigations and enforcement proceedings before the Ontario Securities Commission. Advising institutional and private clients on tribunal decision-making is a large part of Adam’s administrative law practice. Experienced in attacking or defending administrative decisions, he is a frequent author on topics relating to administrative law.

“A tenacious and talented litigator with expertise in regulatory, intellectual property and securities litigation, Adam thrives on complexity, and is never afraid to propose bold, novel solutions, in many cases breaking new ground in the industry,” said Brett Harrison, National Marketing Partner, Advocacy and Employment.

Jeffrey Levine is a member of the firm’s Advocacy and Litigation Group. He assists in the resolution of commercial disputes, particularly those arising from insolvency or corporate restructuring. Jeffrey has appeared before all levels of court in Ontario, and regularly argues cases before judges of the Toronto Commercial List. He is a past chair of the Ontario Bar Association Insolvency Section.

“Jeffrey is both an excellent strategist and expert tactician, which makes him a formidable lawyer. A perfect example of this is the role he recently played as lead litigation counsel in one of the most complex cross-border cannabis restructurings in Canadian history. Jeffrey was able to not only negotiate a multi-party resolution in a complex regulatory climate, but also make new law when it was necessary to get the resolution approved,” said Brett Harrison.
