Victor is an integral part of the Elia Associates legal team. Victor originally joined Elia Associates in 2008 and brings not only a background in condominium law, but also a multi-disciplined perspective and fluency in dealing with the issues and practical human dynamics so often at play in communal living environments.

Victor draws upon his practical experience as the President of the Board of Directors for one of the largest condominium corporations in Ontario (and the recipient of the Canadian Condominium Institute's national award for Best Condominium in Canada), and as the Chair of the disciplinary tribunal for Canada's largest student housing cooperative.

Prior to joining Elia Associates as a lawyer, Victor interned with an international law firm in its corporate law and securities group, worked as a senior criminal defence leader at Osgoode Hall Law School's legal aid clinic, and was a contributing editor of Osgoode's appeals blog.

Victor enjoys being physically active and politically engaged in all four levels of government -- condominium corporations being the fourth!
