It is with mixed emotions that I announce the closure of Levine, Sherkin, Boussidan. After almost 30 years in business it is time to move in a new direction.
I have learned many important things from the beginning of this journey in 1990 to today…the value of friendship, the art of humility, the virtue of generosity, the significance of loyalty and support from those with whom you surround yourself, and that the size of a law firm does not dictate the ability of its lawyers to develop into formidable opponents. I have learned that one of the most important qualities in life is treating people with kindness and respect.
I am proud of the partners, associates and support staff who have come and gone over the years and who continue to shine and contribute to the legal community whether here in Toronto or elsewhere. I feel fortunate to have developed wonderful relationships with other lawyers, whether opponents or allies, and to have had the opportunity to serve wonderful clients – many with whom I have built long-lasting and personal relationships.
I know that everything has its time and now, for me and my team, it is time to move on to a new adventure. I want to thank my family, my clients, my partners, associates, and support staff for travelling with me on this awesome journey over the last 30 years, and hope that I am lucky enough to experience the same joy at my new law firm as I move forward.
Thank you everyone.

Court of Appeal for Ontario addressed the optimal way to catalogue expert evidence at trial. The Court discusses best practices regarding the marking of exhibits at trial so as to avoid confusion about the state of trial evidence on appeal. The Court stated that “the goal of a trial judge in supervising the assembly of a trial record is completeness and accuracy” so that the panel sitting on appeal can easily discern what was before the trial judge at any time during the course of trial.Download PDF
