David R Wingfield
David's advice and representation is sought by governments, companies and wealthy individuals with unusually challenging and complicated disputes. Known for his skilful and creative representation—especially in respect of disputes with no obvious solution—David acts on some of the largest and most important litigation matters in Canada and as counsel or supervising counsel on significant international litigation. He has recently acted for the Prime Minister of Canada, for a government involved in one of North America's largest investment treaty disputes, and for a hedge fund on its international litigation.
Many of David's cases have resulted in precedent-setting judgments in the fields of corporate law, corporate governance, directors' rights/liabilities, bankruptcy/insolvency law, and private international law. He has been named as one of Canada's leading cross border litigators and leading corporate commercial and securities law litigators. David practises as a partner in Toronto with WeirFoulds LLP, a leading Canadian firm with a history that pre-dates the establishment of Canada.
David is qualified in Ontario, New York, and as a solicitor in England & Wales (prior to his call to the Bar).
