The United Macedonian Diaspora (UMD) congratulates long-time UMD friend, supporter, and Macedonian Companions member Chris Paliare, O.Ont., LSM, LL.B., LL.M. on being named one of the 50th most influential people in Toronto in the December 2012 Issue of Toronto Life Magazine.
Toronto Life Magazine describes Paliare, aged 68, as someone who “has a stellar record handling multi-million-dollar commercial suits and precedent-setting public law cases. (He even had the pleasure of cross-examining Stephen Harper over the Chuck Cadman affair in 2008; the PM subsequently dropped his defamation suit against Paliare’s client, the Liberal party.) But his most interesting work happens behind the scenes, advising companies and CEOs (as well as fellow lawyers and judges) in highly sensitive matters requiring the utmost discretion.”
Paliare, a founding partner of Paliare Roland Rosenberg Rothstein LLP in Toronto, has contributed thousands of hours of pro bono work – including international cases involving the human rights of Macedonians, principally in Greece. He is Vice President and Board Member of the Canadian Macedonian Place. To read more about Chris Paliare, click HERE.
