Lexpert®, Canada’s leading source of news and information about the business of law, has recognized Sacha R. Paul as another TDS Rising Star. Thompson Dorfman Sweatman LLP (TDS) congratulates Sacha on being named one of Lexpert’s Rising Stars: Leading Lawyers Under 40 in Canada. Sacha is a partner who shines as co-chair of the Litigation and Dispute Resolution group, and his practice is focused on Indigenous, Public/Administrative, Insurance, and Personal Injury law. 

Sacha Paul has a diverse civil litigation and Indigenous law practice. He has acted for a number of large hydroelectric utilities and mining companies engaging with Indigenous groups in resource development. He has assisted in drafting complex agreements to address development impacts. In Canada v. Khadr he represented Amnesty International before the Supreme Court of Canada concerning Canada’s obligations to assist a citizen detained at Guantanamo Bay. He also acted before human-rights tribunals respecting complaints against governmental bodies in the Northwest Territories and Nunavut and for the Province of Manitoba in the Phoenix Sinclair inquiry into the Manitoba child-welfare system.

Donald Douglas, CEO and Managing Partner of TDS says, “We have always recognized that TDS has some of the most talented leading lawyers in Canada and this is again confirmed by Lexpert, a nationally respected organization in the legal profession.”

This marks the seventh time a TDS lawyer has received this accolade in recent years. Incoming Managing Partner, Keith D. LaBossiere was recognized in 2007, Leilani J. Kagan in 2008 and Shane I. Perlmutter in 2009. Mr. Perlmutter was appointed a judge of the Manitoba Court of Queen’s Bench in 2011 and now serves as its Associate Chief Justice. Lisa J.
