Notable Case: Houghton v. Epcor Collingwood Distribution Corporation, 2019 ONSC 5568

In Houghton v. Epcor Collingwood Distribution Corporation, 2019 ONSC 5568, we represented a former officer and director of a corporation, who had sought indemnity from his former employer regarding the Town of Collingwood Judicial Inquiry. When the corporation (respondent) refused the indemnity, we aggressively pursued the corporation for an indemnity.

This decision is a key victory in that pursuit, winning the argument on the interpretation of the by-law and setting out the framework for the remainder of the dispute.
