Fillmore Riley welcomes back Jason Roberts after his tenure as law clerk with the Supreme Court of Canada.

Fillmore Riley LLP welcomes back associate lawyer Jason Roberts after he completed a year as law clerk to the Honourable Mr. Justice Louis LeBel of the Supreme Court of Canada.

A law clerk, under the direction of the judge for whom the clerk works, researches points of law, prepares legal memoranda and generally assists the judge in the work of the Court.

This is not the first time that one of Fillmore Riley’s associates has taken a leave to work for Canada's highest court. From 2008 to 2009, Fillmore Riley’s Johanna Caithness clerked for the Honourable Mr. Justice Marshall Rothstein. Since Johanna’s return to Fillmore Riley as an associate, she has drawn upon her Supreme Court of Canada experience when advising clients.

“The experience and insight I gained during my year with the Supreme Court of Canada will serve my clients well,” says Jason. “It was an opportunity of a lifetime, but I am happy to be back in my hometown and look forward to getting back to my practice at Fillmore Riley.”

Jason practises in the area of general civil litigation with a focus on insurance and administrative law.
