The Circuit: Sutts, Strosberg LLP expands Toronto office

What: Sutts, Strosberg LLP expands Toronto office
Where: The Chase, 10 Temperance Street
When: Thursday, September 22, 2016

A little bit of rain can’t keep the lawyers at Sutts, Strosberg LLP from having a good time. The few drops that fell from the sky on Thursday had no impact on the bustling atmosphere and trays of delicious seafood atop the fifth-floor patio at The Chase.

The occasion? Sutts, Strosberg LLP, a Windsor-based firm known for its class-action practice, has opened an office here in Toronto. The firm has had space in Toronto for close to five years, but it was mainly for lawyers to use if they had motions, appeals or trials in the city. But the firm now has two full-time litigators —David Wingfield and Nicholas Cartel — based in Toronto.

“David has a tremendous amount of experience,” says Jay Strosberg, a partner at the firm. “He’s a former head of the anti-trust/competition law division of the Department of Justice. And Nicholas worked with David at the DOJ, so it was a perfect fit.”

As for now, it’s just the two of them, but Strosberg isn’t ruling out the possibility of expanding the team.

“David and Nicholas are already extremely busy,” he says. “We may need to look for another associate to assist them.”
