Prior to opening his practice in 2011, Mr. Chsherbinin spent a number of years practicing law with a nationally recognized Toronto litigation boutique, where he specialized in employment litigation.

Mr. Chsherbinin tenaciously advocates for his clients in civil litigation matters, with an emphasis on wrongful dismissal and immigration litigation. He has appeared as counsel in matters before the Federal Court of Appeal, the Ontario Divisional Court, the Ontario Superior Court of Justice, the Federal Court of Canada, the Immigration & Refugee Board, the Canadian (and Ontario) Human Rights Tribunal and the Ontario Labour Relations Board.

Mr. Chsherbinin has a keen interest in a niche area of law – economic torts. He authored a legal textbook, The Law of Inducement in Canadian Employment Law, which scrutinizes liability for intentional interference with contractual and economic relationships, in the context of employment.

Mr. Chsherbinin is a columnist for Law Times and the author of numerous publications on a variety of employment and immigration law topics. Many pieces of his work have been featured in leading trade publications across Canada, such as: Ontario Bar Association, Law Times, The Lawyers Weekly, The Lawyer’s Daily, Canadian Corporate Counsel Magazine, Canadian Employment Law Today and Canadian HR Reporter.

Mr. Chsherbinin has also been a presenter and panellist at professional development programs offered by Lorman, the Ontario Bar Association, Carswell and the B’nai Brith CLE seminar.
