Robert Harrison has litigated cases in many areas of substantive law, including securities, financial institutions, shareholders' remedies, insurance coverage, directors’ and officers’ liability, environmental litigation, intellectual property, and injunctions. A Justice of the Superior Court of Ontario described Robert as “a highly regarded litigator, recognized as senior counsel.” Another Justice of the same Court said of Robert: “This (matter) was ... of importance to both parties ... It was reasonable for the applicant to have someone of Mr. Harrison’s seniority and ability lead the case.” Perhaps best known for his success in a two-year trial and subsequent appeals in Waxman v. Waxman, the reasons of the trial judge on this case made clear that the cross-examinations conducted by Robert were fundamental to the clients' success Robert regularly presents on trial advocacy for The Advocates’ Society. He served on the Ontario Civil Rules Committee for six years. Robert is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators, and also a Fellow of the Litigation Counsel of America. He is a Charter Member of the Trial Law Institute and the Diversity Law Institute.
