Peter Griffin Receives King’s Counsel Designation

The King’s Counsel designation is given to lawyers who have demonstrated a commitment to the pursuit of legal excellence in service to the Crown, the public and their communities.

“We are very proud that our Founding Partner, Peter Griffin, is receiving the King’s Counsel designation,” says Managing Partner, Monique Jilesen. “As an advocate, mentor, teacher, and colleague, Peter truly represents the very best in the legal profession. In his 43 years of practice, he has made a significant impact on the development of the law and legal practice in Ontario through his outstanding advocacy, precedent-setting decisions, unwavering commitment to education and mentorship, and involvement in advancing the legal profession and the broader community.”

Peter has acted in hundreds of trials and arbitrations, working tirelessly to advance his clients’ interests in the pursuit of justice. Despite maintaining a busy practice, Peter has made an enduring contribution to the profession through his teaching of the next generation of lawyers, giving them meaningful court experience, sharing his expertise through numerous speaking engagements, and setting the standard for excellence, professionalism, and integrity. Peter has also made lasting effects to the practice of law as President of The Advocates’ Society, Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, member of the Commercial List Users’ Committee, and member of the Quadrennial Commission for Judicial Compensation, among other positions in which he has served.

Congratulations, Peter, on this well-deserved recognition!
