THE LAW TIMES – Lawyer gets reprimand for advertising violation

Darryl Singer of Singer Barristers in Toronto, who represented D’Alimonte in the matter, says the matter was ultimately resolved jointly with the tribunal’s counsel and that D’Alimonte would be issued a reprimand — the lowest form of formal discipline under the Law Society Act.
