As a member of Torys’ Research Practice, John Cameron conducts and supervises legal research on a wide variety of legal issues, including corporate law, contract law, partnership law, personal property security law, trust law, securities law and conflict of laws. Canadian pension funds frequently consult him about compliance with fund investing rules. John also helps our corporate lawyers to structure transactions. He works hard to find more solutions than problems for our clients.
For most of the 1980s, John was a transaction lawyer, representing companies and institutions in their capital raising and debt restructuring activities. In 1986 and 1987, he was Canadian in-house counsel to Chase Manhattan Bank. After joining Torys in 1987, he became a partner practicing in the debt finance and lending area, until he transferred to the Research Department in 1991.
