The Lee Samis Award of Excellence was named for the founding President of CDL to recognize exceptional contributions and/or achievements by members of CDL:
- to the legal profession in general; or
- to jurisprudence in Canada on the law of insurance; or
- to law or development of the law of insurance in Canada; or
- a significant law-related benefit to CDL and/or the insurance industry.
Eric was called to the Ontario Bar in 1989 and has been certified as a Specialist in Civil Litigation by the Law Society of Upper Canada since 1999. Eric has been named by Best Lawyers International as Best Lawyer, Personal Injury Litigation, Toronto, for 2018, and is recognized annually as a Best Lawyer in Canada in personal injury and insurance law by that organization. Eric continues to be recognized by Lexpert as a leading practitioner in personal injury law. He has been peer rated by Martindale-Hubbell for over twenty consecutive years. His entire legal career has been spent acting for insurers in litigation matters, both in defence and in subrogation matters, for a number of property and casualty insurers. Eric and his partners founded the firm Zarek Taylor Grossman Hanrahan LLP in 1997.
While Eric's exploits in defence of insurers is well documented in various reporting services including the Supreme Court of Canada Reports, and his publications cover the gamut of Law Society Special Lecture series to various journals, Eric's failures include failing to yet break 80 on a championship level golf course, and failure to perform onstage with Earth Wind & Fire. Eric has, however, golfed with the lead singer from Earth Wind & Fire, which should count for something.
CDL is delighted to honour Eric - please join us in celebrating Eric’s award.
