SCOTT FENTON CRIMINAL LAW LAWYER; SENIOR PARTNER FENTON, SMITH BARRISTER " THIRTY YEARS OF DEDICATION"

August 10, 2017

SCOTT FENTON CRIMINAL LAW LAWYER; SENIOR PARTNER FENTON, SMITH BARRISTER

 

Criminal Lawyer, published author, lecturer, and

Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers

and International Society of Barristers – for nearly

thirty years, Scott Fenton has accrued a vast

and varied background in the legal profession.

His eleven page CV is a testament to his passionate drive

to achieve, grow in his skills, and be a loyal defender of his

clients.

 

And this proverbial fire in the belly has been burning since

his youth.

 

As a young man, Fenton was influenced by a couple of

his parents’ friends who were, by coincidence, an influential

criminal layer, and a powerful civil litigator. The spark was lit;

he was inspired. Pursuing law was something he felt compelled

to gravitate to – and he has found enormous success in the

field.

 

Currently a senior partner at Fenton, Smith Barrister

since 2000, he was formerly a Crown prosecutor in the 1990s

for the Federal Department of Justice, and former partner at

Fasken Martineau DuMoulin in Toronto. Fenton has litigated

countless trials and appeals, including multiple appearances

before the Supreme Court of Canada.

 

“I ultimately found my greatest interest in defending

criminal cases,” he notes.

 

Included in his long list of career accolades that have

primarily involved taking briefs as defence counsel, he was

appointed as Special Prosecutor in high profile matters by the

Attorney General of Ontario and Attorney General of British

Columbia.

 

His services and experience consist of a full range

of criminal law, with an emphasis on fraud, competition,

corruption of foreign public officials and securities fraud.

 

“Clients come to me experiencing the worst problem

they’ve had in their life,” he says. And while in the long term,

of course, the goal is an acquittal, Fenton makes sure every

step of the way that the process is clear for the people he’s

protecting."

 

“It’s very important for them to know the nature of the

charges, the evidence against them and all of their strategic

options, so they may make an informed decision as to what

they’re going to do in their defense,” he adds.

 

“That can include going trial, resolve the matter, or

requesting the Crown to withdraw the case. Every client should

walk away from his lawyer’s office with a full understanding

of their case and complete satisfaction that their counsel did

everything ethically and legally possible to secure the best

possible outcome.”

 

He has representation on files with the Toronto Police

Services, Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Competition

Bureau, Ontario Securities Commission, US Securities and

Exchange Commission, United States Attorney’s Offices and

United States Federal Department of Justice.

 

“You have to love the grind of preparing for trial, love

dealing with your adversary, and you have to love being on

your feet,” he says. “You’re always on, always thinking.”

 

A much sought-after speaker on legal issues here and

abroad, he has lectured at conferences throughout Canada, the

United States, the Caribbean and the U.K. and been a long time

faculty member of the National Criminal Law Program.

 

Impressive credentials are one thing; it’s another thing to

know they were built because of the individual attention and

concern given to those whom he defends.

 

“The client comes first. That’s our credo in terms of professionalism and excellence in practice,” he insists.

 

“There are many very good criminal lawyers in the

province of Ontario. We are proud to stand among the best

because of our hard work, experience and expertise, our

professionalism, and our dedication to our clients.”

 

That, in a nutshell, has been how Scott Fenton has

developed nearly three decades’ worth of accomplishments and

success.

 

Dave Gordon  has penned more than a thousand articles, and more than five hundred editorials, on every topic imaginable. He writes regularly on domestic and international politics, current events, culture, relationship issues, and much more.

 

He has spent time in the newsrooms of the Toronto Sun, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Baltimore Sun, National Post and eye Weekly.
