Waddell Phillips announced that Prashanth Chandrapal and W. Cory Wanless have joined the firm as associates.

Chandrapal’s practice covers all aspects of family law including domestic and child protection matters.

Prior to joining Waddell Phillips, Chandrapal was a summer student at a boutique Toronto law firm focusing on class actions, civil litigation and family law. He was also a summer student at the Toronto Crown Attorney’s Office. During law school, he interned at the largest criminal defence firm in Ottawa and he also clerked with a judge of the Ontario Court of Justice.

Prior to attending law school, Chandrapal worked in the Court Services Division of the Ministry of the Attorney General and he also worked for a federal member of Parliament.

Wanless has been actively litigating cases of public importance for almost a decade. He has represented clients before all levels of court in Ontario and Alberta, and has argued at the Supreme Court of Canada.

He has particular interest and experience in complex civil litigation, especially as it relates to corporate accountability, human rights, Indigenous rights, environmental law, police accountability and defending human rights defenders. Wanless devotes a sizable portion of his practice to access to justice cases.
