Dom has a general corporate and commercial practice with broad experience advising on various types of financing transactions, routinely acting for a wide range of lenders and borrowers on domestic and cross-border syndicated loan financings, acquisition and take-over bid financings, public and private bond offerings, and other debt capital markets transactions.
Prior to joining Bennett Jones, Dom was the head of an enterprise-wide contracts advisory function at an international financial institution, where he developed and implemented an end-to-end contracting process focusing on regulatory compliance, risk reduction, operational effectiveness, and cost avoidance/reduction. He also assisted with the management and implementation of an enterprise-wide third party risk management program in response to regulatory guidelines set out by the Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions and the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.
He began his legal career with a national full-service law firm and also spent time in regulatory/policy reform, working with the Federal Government and interested provinces/territories to establish a co-operative capital markets regulatory system.
Dom complements his practice by remaining actively involved in the community. He is an adjunct lecturer of corporate and regulatory liability at McMaster University, a member of the Canadian Bond Investors’ Association, and volunteers as a committee member with the Young Professionals for SickKids.
