About Joshua Sutherland
Joshua graduated with his Juris Doctorate from the University of Toronto Faculty of Law and was called to the bar in June 2010. He joined the firm in 2011 and is a member of the firm's litigation department, and plays an active role in the employment and family law divisions.
He brings with him a wealth of trial experience as he started his career as a Crown Prosecutor with the Ministry of the Attorney General of Ontario where he was involved in high-impact trials including murder and manslaughter in the Superior Court of Justice and independently conducted trials and contested sentencing hearings in the Ontario Court of Justice. As a Summer Associate at a large firm in Thailand, he worked closely with international corporate clients in dispute resolution. He also has experience representing clients at disciplinary hearings and tribunals.
As an active member of his law school, Joshua played a variety of intermural sports, participated in mooting competitions, was an elected member of student caucus and was nominated for valedictorian. While at law school, his greatest achievement was founding the Diversity Pipeline Initiative, an aboriginal education outreach project which involved him cycling across western Canada and speaking to Aboriginal youth about the benefits of post-secondary education.
In his personal life, Joshua was a formal motivational speaker in Japan, Thailand and Canada following his experience in the 2004 tsunami. He has a passion for outdoor recreation and is happily married to his wife, Julia.
