All About Information is a legal blog about privacy and access to information, protection of confidential business information, libel and slander and the law of production. It is authored by the following five lawyers from Hicks Morley, a Toronto-based management-side human resources law and advocacy firm.
I’m one of Hicks Morley’s generalists and head up the firm’s Knowledge Management Group. I’ve been following privacy and information developments since the introduction of PIPEDA, and have made these areas a staple in my practice ever since.
I’m based in London (Ontario, not the other one), and enjoy a busy life with my spouse and our two children. No surfing or Beck for me, though I am partial to Great Big Sea & Newfoundland drinking songs (courtesy of my Newfoundlander spouse & in-laws).
This is my first foray into the blogosphere, and I’m looking forward to the experience.
I’m a litigator working in Toronto, Canada. I’m thrilled to be part of this blog, although a little disappointed that my idea to rebrand the blog “All About Frank” was politely, but firmly, rejected. Looking forward to comments and discussion.

I’m new to group blogging, but have a feeling I’m going to like it!
I am one of 11 pension lawyers in Hicks Morley’s Pension & Benefits Practice Group in our Toronto office. I will readily and happily admit that my love of all things pension law makes me a bona fide nerd. A title I wear proudly.
Outside of the office, as an avid sports fan, I can likely be found in attendance at a Leafs or Jays game with my husband. I also have my shodan (black belt) in judo and, while I have not competed in a good number of years, I still throw a mean O Soto Gari.
I’m excited to be a part of the new group blog and look forward to discussing the intersection of all things information and pension.
Greetings from Canada’s capital! I’m based in Hicks Morley’s Ottawa office, and practice in all areas of labour and employment law, including privacy and information issues.
Being in Ottawa gives me the opportunity to work in both of our official languages, plus I can avoid judo throws by my southerly colleagues, tripping over their surf magazine collections, or getting drawn into rowdy drinking songs (well, that can still happen on occasion, unfortunately for anyone within earshot).
I’m thrilled to be officially joining the blogosphere!
