Angela Chaisson to Speak on Privacy Litigation at the Ontario Bar Association

On December 8th at 12pm one of our lawyers, Angela Chaisson, will be included on a panel discussing privacy litigation and updates on privacy torts with the Ontario Bar Association.

Ontario’s new tort of “publicity placing a person in a false light” was first recognized in 2019 by the Superior Court of Justice in the case of Yenovkian v. Gulian and awards both compensatory and punitive damages to the wronged party.

Over the last year and a half, the new privacy tort has resulted in changes to how individuals conduct themselves and businesses protect privacy.  Join our panel of experts as they bring you up to speed on the latest case law in this area, how it has expanded and where it is expected to go in the years ahead.

Angela regularly litigates privacy issues, and you can reach her by phone at 416 920 6179 to discuss any privacy related litigation issues. Links and further information about the panel to follow.

"It was an absolute pleasure to work with Ben Millard at Millard & Company Barristers and Solicitors. Before signing on to use his services he took the time to answer any and all questions we had so that we felt confident when choosing him to help us with our legal matter. Once we signed on, this did not change. He was always very quick to answer our questions or address our concerns. He was very quick to let us know our next moves and did not sit on anything which was well appreciated. Would recommend to anyone to use his services. Kind, courteous, and genuinely great person to deal with!"

"It was a great pleasure, and a great experience, for our not-for-profit organization to work with Marcus McCann to assist us to rewrite our by-laws. Marcus was professional, knowledgeable and understanding of our issues and committed to helping us to frame our new by-laws in the context of both our organization's vision, mission and values and the law as it relates to not-for-profit organizations. He was diligent, completed the work within the time frame we agreed upon, responded to phone calls and emails promptly, and was always courteous to me and my colleagues. I thoroughly recommend Marcus for any organization who needs legal assistance, particularly in developing by-laws."

"Within a day I was connected to Ben Millard and he walked me through the approach and compensation once he understood my circumstances. He negotiated a good deal and it was settled in less than three weeks (would have been faster except for summer holiday). He was always available for questions during the negotiation and will answer questions on any future contracts vis a vis the severance package. With Ben I know I got the best deal i could."

"This is the second occasion for me reaching out to Ben Millard for his employment related expertise. I greatly appreciate Ben’s clear and concise counsel. His ability to distill the relevant and important issues from all the “noise” makes working with him to be efficient and effective. I would not hesitate to recommend him for any employment law matters."
