Jonathan B. Schrieder
Jonathan served as the firm’s managing partner from 2008 to 2013. He now focuses his practice exclusively on trials and arbitration matters. He is the co-chair of the firm’s Estate Litigation practice.
He was called to the Bar of Ontario in 2000. Jonathan’s practice is exclusively focused on advocacy and litigation. He has a special interest in jury trials and Estate Litigation matters. He also acts on behalf of insurance companies in disputes with other insurers. He has extensive experience in extinguishing fraudulent and questionable claims.
Jonathan has taken more than 60 trials and arbitrations to verdict or final decision. Outside of the courtroom, he provides pragmatic, sound, and often very blunt advice. He also regularly appears at industry gatherings to deliver papers and speeches, and has been a featured speaker at conferences hosted by the Ontario Bar Association and Canadian Defence Lawyers.
Mr. Schrieder handles select estate and guardianship matters pro bono in aid of orphaned children and their surviving family members. He also provides pro bono civil law assistance through Pro Bono Law Ontario, a registered charity with a mandate to improve access to justice for low-income Ontarians.
When away from his litigation practice, he enjoys spending time with his wife and two sons. He also enjoys tennis, playing piano, and poker.
