Remembering Michael H. Appleton, Q.C.

July 11, 2022


It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our Partner, friend and colleague, Michael H. Appleton, Q.C.  Michael passed away on July 10, 2022.

Following his graduation from Osgoode Hall Law School in 1964, he practiced law for 56 years and was the Managing Partner for 33 years. During that tenure he oversaw the almost five-fold growth of our firm.  Michael was instrumental in building this firm and its continued success since the merger of Siegal, Fogler and Rubinoff & Rubinoff in 1982.  Fogler, Rubinoff LLP would not be what we are today without Michael’s leadership, business acumen, wisdom and sense of humour. His deep commitment to our clients and our firm was something we all admired.

Our hearts are with Michael’s family, who always mattered the most to him. He will be deeply missed by everyone who was privileged to work with and learn from him.
