Frank Addario
Ask Frank what it takes to be a good criminal lawyer and he'll say: start with a healthy dose of skepticism and a willingness to challenge authority. Combine that with a genuine passion for helping people solve problems they can't fix on their own and you have a good criminal lawyer. You also have a pretty good description of Frank himself.
It's these qualities that drive his interest in criminal law and that have placed him at the top of his profession. Named one of the 25 Most Influential Lawyers in Canada in 2010 and past President of the Criminal Lawyers' Association (CLA), he has frequently appeared as counsel before the Supreme Court of Canada. He regularly represents individuals and corporations under investigation or who are the target of enforcement proceedings by police and regulatory agencies. He was nominated by his peers as one of the country's leading Business Crime Defence practitioners in Who's Who Legal: Canada 2013.
Large organizations, public companies, and chartered banks retain Frank to conduct internal investigations and to respond to enterprise-threatening events. He regularly advises public bodies, non-profits and oversight agencies, including the Toronto Police Services Board, about regulatory, criminal and constitutional law. Few lawyers in Canada have Frank's experience in managing the overlapping demands of concurrent criminal and regulatory investigations and the media to guide organizations safely through a crisis.
Frank is a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, the premier organization of trial lawyers in North America. Membership is extended by invitation and only after rigorous peer review. Fewer than 1 percent of the bar in any U.S. state or Canadian province is invited to join the College. He is also a Fellow of the American Board of Criminal Lawyers, an invitation-only society for criminal lawyers with exceptional experience and ability.
In 2011 Frank was given the Lexpert Zenith Award for contributing to Access to Justice for his work in leading the CLA in a boycott of Legal Aid in order to bring attention to the chronic underfunding of the program and force the government to provide better access to justice for its poorest citizens. In 2012 he received the Dianne Martin Medal for Social Justice Through Law. Osgoode Hall Law School awards this medal to a member of the Canadian legal community who has demonstrated a commitment to using the law as a means for achieving social justice.
Frank is frequently asked to explain criminal law issues by the media. He writes and speaks about criminal law and civil liberties to lawyers and to the wider public on a regular basis. His interest in advocating for those whose rights need defending has led him to become a director of the Canadian Civil Liberties Association.
Frank founded the Addario Law Group in 2012.


Personal Privacy on Work IT

The ruling has significant implications for workers who use electronic devices including cell phones for personal purposes - "which is pretty well everyone" - as well as employers who might like to keep tabs on employee use of tech devices, said Frank Addario, of Sack, Goldblatt, Mitchell LLP, who argued the appeal for defendant Richard Cole.

...
"A big issue here is the tradeoff that employers expect employees to make," Mr. Addario said. "If they want their employees to be available 24/7 and are giving them BlackBerrys and PCs to contact them outside of business hours, it is inevitable that people are going to use those devices on their personal time as well as business time. That's an inevitable consequence of asking people to be on call beyond eight hours a day," he said.
"That means artifacts of personal, private life are going to get left on the electronic devices, regardless of who paid for them," Mr. Addario said. And the court is saying that employers are going to have to respect that these are the employee's private property, he said.
