Back to Our Team

Robert Dowhan (Bob) is both the Managing Partner and a partner in the Civil Litigation and Employment Law Practice Groups with a primary focus on civil litigation and a particular interest in property litigation. Bob also works with Insurers with respect to both property claims and title insurance claims.

He has extensive experience with all civil litigation including construction matters, property disputes, real estate defects and related litigation. Bob has appeared before all levels of Court in Ontario. Bob is truly most comfortable meeting with clients and finding solutions to problems in a unique and practical fashion and litigating only when all other avenues have been exhausted.  Bob also advises both employers and employees in all aspects of the workplace law: hiring, terminations, drafting contracts and workplace policies and procedures, workplace investigations, and notice pay or termination pay issues.  Bob provides advice and representation of employees or employers in employment law matters.

Bob obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Windsor and a Bachelor of Laws degree from the University of Western Ontario. He was called to the bar in 2001 and has been at SmithValeriote Law Firm LLP without interruption since his call.

Bob and his wife, Kate have three children (Bobby, Lily and Eloise) who keep them busy. Bob enjoys basketball and other sports. He spends his true leisure time kayaking and fishing. He lives to be on the water and actually has a list of special fish he is trying to land. Bob’s wife Kate is a trained chef, so they share a love of cooking, baking and eating.
