Alex is an Alumni Ambassador at City for Canada
The City Law School
I am a Manager of Legal and Business Affairs for a production company, Insight. I am responsible for managing contractual relationships for Insight, ensuring compliance with broadcaster, funding agency, and tax credit requirements, and for negotiating broadcast licensing agreements. I also assist the scripted department with acquiring intellectual property rights. I trained at a national full-service firm and practiced commercial litigation at a mid-sized Toronto firm before joining Insight as legal counsel.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts from McGill University, an LLB from City and a Juris Doctorate from the University of Toronto Law School. I was called to the Ontario Bar in 2014 and have published articles on a wide variety of legal issues ranging from product liability regulation to medical marijuana in schools.
As an alumnus who returned to Canada, I am well aware of the challenges associated with explaining an international degree to domestic institutions and employers. As an Alumni Ambassador, I look forward to helping other graduates with this transition and connecting with other alumni.
