Robin provides proactive advice to leading manufacturers and distributors and others in the distribution chain on risk management, litigation avoidance strategies, government regulation and compliance, and product warnings and recalls. He primarily represents clients in the defence of serious personal injury cases involving allegations of failure to warn, negligent design, manufacture and testing of medical devices, pharmaceutical products, automotive parts, food products, commercial and industrial machinery, crop protection and agricultural products, electrical products, restaurant equipment, and consumer goods. Many of these cases are class actions.
Robin's practice extends into general commercial litigation where he represents both plaintiffs and defendants in disputes involving breach of restrictive covenants, shareholder disputes, professional negligence and breach of commercial contracts.
He also represents and advises First Nations and non-First Nations clients in resolving disputes involving Canadian aboriginal law arising from the management of First Nations lands and resources, constitutional claims and treaties, and issues relating to the Crown's duty to consult.
