Marshall Rothstein, former justice with the Supreme Court of Canada, is joining Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt LLP's Vancouver office.

Rothstein’s prodigious body of work has shaped the Canadian business law landscape. His legal career began as a civil litigator in private practice and spanned a 23-year tenure on the bench, with the last nine years on Canada’s highest court. He retired from the Supreme Court in 2015.

Throughout his legal and judicial career, Rothstein has authored more than 100 judgments and arbitral decisions on domestic and cross-border cases of commercial significance and complexity.

Within Canada’s business community, he is regarded as a judge and commercial arbitrator with great wisdom and expertise in dispute resolution, including M&A, tax, competition, intellectual property and issues in the transportation and energy sectors.
