Matthew Stroh, H.B.A., J.D.


Matthew is a practical and tenacious litigator. He maintains a broad civil, commercial, insurance and securities litigation practice.

He has represented both defendants and plaintiffs in class proceedings, engineers, developers and public authorities in real estate and construction disputes, investment advisors and brokerages in lawsuits involving negligent advice and fraud, insurance brokers and disability insurers in cases concerning a wide range of insurance products, and manufacturers in product liability cases. This experience has resulted in numerous reported decisions in complex and novel areas of law, including several in the Ontario Reports and in Watson & McGowan’s Ontario Civil Practice.

A significant portion of Matthew’s practice in recent years has involved cross-border claims for securities misrepresentation in the primary and secondary markets involving publicly traded companies operating in a diverse range of industries and geographical locations, including mining and offshore oil and gas exploration. In the context of this practice, Matthew has recovered millions of dollars for investors.

Matthew has appeared as counsel before the Superior Court of Justice (including the Commercial List), the Divisional Court, the Court of Appeal for Ontario, and on applications for leave to appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada. He also has experience working on matters proceeding before the Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta, the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, the Southern District of Texas and the Eastern District of Michigan.
