I have had the pleasure to work with Justin on several transactions. In particular, Justin was able to bring to the table the optimal mix of legal expertise and commercial solutions, which assisted greatly in executing transactions, while adequately protecting the Bank’s interests. Justin also referred opportunities to us, which converted into very good long-term relationships for the Bank. In one particular transaction, Justin’s creative solutions were key to successful completion of a very complex transaction. Please feel free to reach out to me on any additional colour needed on my recommendation of Justin.
Justin is exactly the kind of lawyer you want on your file. He is an outgoing, creative thinker who always keeps the business problem in mind. He is proactive in his approach to files, always looking to mitigate risk for clients and increase the bottom line, wherever his clients are located. A leader, mentor and fine practitioner, I highly recommend Justin.
Over the years, Justin has represented me on some of my most important cases and delivered superior results. Solid knowledge of the law, good strategic mindset and excellent presence in the courtroom are some of the attributes that have contributed to his many successes. Justin remains my first choice on complex files.
Justin is more than just a good lawyer. He is a strategic thinker that is incredibly well connected and as such can tap into resources not generally available to other lawyers. I have recommended Justin to colleagues and friends and they have been very happy with the results.
Justin’s creative juices, tireless energy, competitive nature and compassion are the winning mix to his success in managing many complex legal files I have given him over the years.
His dynamic, charismatic personality and charm award him with an abundance of friends, while often catching opponents off guard. At the same time, Justin actively participates in a number of charitable causes with the same amount of energy and passion he does in his legal work, which is reflective of the true character of this individual.
Justin is a smart, driven and diligent lawyer with excellent communication skills.
I had the pleasure of working with Justin on a financially troubled client. The situation was unusually dynamic and complex. I was impressed by Justin’s expertise in insolvency matters, restructuring and refinancing. That expertise, combined with his creativity and passion for success, was extraordinarily valuable to me in my efforts to rescue the business. I also found his client management, communication and business advisory skills to be very strong, which is a very important plus in stressful and difficult circumstances. I would happily recommend Justin as a legal advisor to companies in financial difficulty.
Mr. Fogarty is a highly experienced, practical lawyer. By nature, he focuses on business solutions for a client. He is articulate, steadfast and deal oriented. He brought his entire network and the resources to assist on cases that I have worked with him. He keenly listens to other’s views and happily accommodates where one deserves. His philanthropic commitments, on top of being an excellent lawyer, are laudable in sports and the Canadian Forces.
I worked with Justin over a 2-year period during the negotiation/arbitration of the farm gate price for a major agricultural commodity. The legal creativity and clarity that he brought to our negotiation and arbitration strategy led to its successful completion. During it, he demonstrated an unrivaled personal ability to rapidly comprehend the technical complexities of our industry, its pricing processes and historical dynamics. He led a litigation team that excelled in its ability to work with, to prepare, to present and to question technical and business witnesses in a way that won the day for us during the arbitration. He is one of the best legal strategists and litigators that I have worked with during my 25-year plus executive career. It was a personal pleasure to work with an individual leading a team whose members were the top of not only their “personal game”, but also of their professions.
