Eric Swetsky practices exclusively in the areas of Canadian advertising, marketing and promotion law, including Canadian trademark and copyright law. Eric's client base includes advertising agencies, marketing promotion firms, direct marketers, consumer product and consumer oriented corporations, public relations firms and television/film personalities.

Eric is a sole practitioner who brings a service orientation to his clients. He embraces a "contextual" approach to the practice of law. He believes it is not simply enough to tell a client they cannot legally do something, but that his job is to advise them as to how they can legally do it. With his MBA, he is able to put the legal advice he gives his clients within a practical, business context.

Eric prides himself on the relationships he has developed with his clients over the years, and welcomes the opportunity to discuss your legal needs with you.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?
