Ron Davis offers over 35 years of unique litigation experience, combining high-level analytical skills with advanced written advocacy abilities.
Working creatively and collaboratively with clients and Foglers colleagues, Ron helps develop strategies that optimize outcomes and minimize costs for the client.
Ron has not only worked with some of the country’s top litigators to supercharge clients’ cases before all levels of Court, up to the Supreme Court of Canada. He has also enjoyed multiple careers.
On the law side, Ron – who is multilingual – is a cum laude graduate of the highly-regarded Common Law en français program at the University of Ottawa. He taught at the Law Society of Ontario’s Bar Admission Course for a decade. He has edited and written over 50 articles and books on varied topics: social media, lawyers and technology, mortgage litigation, business valuation, linguistics, and jazz piano.
Beyond law, Ron holds a Ph.D. in French linguistics from the University of Toronto. He was an Assistant Professor there for five years.
Finally, Ron has an international career as an acclaimed jazz pianist and recording artist (13 recordings to date). Foglers is proud of Ron’s 2020 nomination for a JUNO award.
These diverse achievements give Ron a special edge or, as Ron likes to call them “lawyer superpowers”, in all areas of litigation.
In his spare time, Ron loves to follow the technology world (he’s definitely Windows, not Mac), read great literature, and argue about movies. And as an avid Iyengar yoga practitioner, Ron is always ready to do backbends and headstands with you.
