Daniel Iny is a civil litigator in our Toronto office. He began practising law in 2003 and joined the firm in 2008 after prosecuting environmental offences at the Ontario Ministry of the Environment.
Daniel handles a variety of civil and commercial disputes for individuals, institutions, trade unions, and not-for-profit housing co-operatives. His practice focuses on professional negligence and discipline matters (with a particular emphasis on defending lawyers sued for negligence), wrongful dismissal litigation on behalf of employees, defamation claims, contractual disputes, and civil claims against the police. Daniel regularly appears before all levels of courts and tribunals throughout the province.
In addition to his litigation work, Daniel routinely provides legal advice to non-unionized employees at all stages of the employment relationship. He is frequently retained to advise on and negotiate employment contracts; address various issues that may arise in the course of an employment relationship; and to provide strategic advice upon termination, including helping to negotiate termination and severance packages in lieu of litigation.
Daniel received his law degrees (common and civil law) from McGill University in 2002 and also has a Master of Laws degree (2005) from Yeshiva University’s Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law. Prior to law school, Daniel graduated magna cum laude from Tufts University with a bachelor of arts degree.
