Participant Profile

Dan Kirby

Partner, Co-Chair Environmental Law Group, Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt LLP

LLB, Osgoode Hall Law School, 1980

I have a degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Toronto. I articled at the Ministry of the Attorney General, practiced general litigation at a 13 person firm for just over 4 years and have been practicing at Osler since 1986 (partner since 1988). Since about 1990 the majority of my practice has been in environmental law and for at least the last 15 years, it is exclusively environmental, almost entirely from the business side. I cover all aspects of environmental law, except charges under environmental statutes. It is great work since it forces me to continuously learn.
