Justice Robert Beaudoin

B.A. 1970, (Windsor); M.Ed. 1974 (U of T); LLB 1979, (Windsor) Justice Beaudoin was called to the Bar (Ontario) in 1981. He then practiced law in Windsor, Ontario. In 1989, he was appointed the Regional Director of Courts Administration for East Region in Ottawa. He joined the Civil Justice Review in 1994 and participated in the productions of the Review’s two reports aimed at reforming Ontario’s civil justice system. He has extensive experience in civil case management and court-annexed mediation. In January of 1997, he was appointed the Case Management Master for the Superior Court of Justice in Ottawa. After his appointment, he lectured and provided advice on case management and mediation and participated in a number of international justice projects in the Caribbean, Asia and Africa. In 2007, he was named one of two Family Case Managers involved in a Pilot Project in the Family Branch of the Superior Court in Ottawa. He was appointed a judge of the Superior Court of Justice in September, 2009. He is currently the Local Administrative Judge for Civil Matters for the Superior Court of Justice in Ottawa.

The Honourable Mr. Justice David Brown

Justice David Brown was appointed to the Court of Appeal for Ontario in December, 2014, after sitting as a judge of the Superior Court of Justice of Ontario in the Toronto Region since September, 2006, including several years on the Toronto Region Commercial List.  Immediately prior to his appointment to the Court of Appeal, Justice Brown was serving as the President of the Ontario Superior Court Judges’ Association.

Before his appointment to the Bench, he was a partner with Stikeman Elliott LLP (Toronto) in its Litigation and Energy Groups.  He served as an Adjunct Professor of Law at Osgoode Hall Law School teaching Energy Law from 2004 until 2006, and a Sessional Lecturer at Queen’s University Law School from 1990 to 2002 teaching Trial Advocacy. Justice Brown writes on a number of legal topics, including civil procedure reform and Newfoundland legal history.

Justice Brown earned his B.A. (Hons.), University of Toronto, 1976; Certificate, Beijing Languages Institute, 1977; Diploma, Nanjing University, 1978; J.D., 1981, University of Toronto; L.L.M., Osgoode Hall Law School, 2005; called to the Ontario Bar, 1983.

Colin Dubeau

Colin Dubeau is a partner at Nelligan O’Brien Payne LLP and the leader of the firm’s Insurance Practice Group. Since his call to the Bar in 1999, Colin has practised exclusively in the areas of civil litigation and advocacy. Colin has extensive experience in professional liability claims against lawyers, accountants, architects, engineers, school officials and health care practitioners. In his practice, Colin has acted for clients in a diverse range of commercial disputes, including construction claims, building deficiency claims, environmental claims, debt collection matters, shareholder disputes, and a vast array of insurance contract interpretation and dispute claims. Colin enjoys the strategic aspect of law, and the interaction with clients. He always maintains focus on the big picture, and keeps the end result in mind throughout the legal process. For reasons not exactly clear, Colin was recognized in the 2020 edition of The Best Lawyers in Canada for his work in Insurance Law. For reasons equally uncertain, Colin is a somewhat-regular speaker at a variety of CPD events, including ones put on by the CCLA and The Advocates Society. Given his exhaustive efforts at delegating as much work as possible to others in his firm, Colin enjoys getting in as much snowmobiling as he possibly can and is looking forward to a long and snowy winter.

Jessica articled with and continues as an associate at Nelligan O’Brien Payne. She practices primarily in the areas of personal injury, wrongful death, insurance defence and medical malpractice.

Connolly in 2008 with the purpose of focusing their respective practices on personal injury law, medical malpractice and disability law. Joseph is a graduate of York University's Osgoode Hall Law School and was called to the Ontario Bar in 1995. In 2006, he was certified by the Law Society of Upper Canada as a Specialist in Civil Litigation. He practices primarily in the Superior Court of Justice and the Court of Appeal for Ontario, although he has also acted as lead counsel in arbitration and administrative proceedings. Joseph's outstanding contribution as a litigator earned him the Regional Senior Justice Award in 2004, an award sponsored and presented by the County of Carleton Law Association. He was the award's inaugural recipient. Joseph has been a guest lecturer at numerous CLE conferences, including those hosted by the National Judicial Institute, the Law Society of Ontario, the Advocates’ Society and the Ontario Trial Lawyers’ Association.
