Toronto Fraud litigation Lawyer Russell Bennett

Investigation Counsel PC offers a form of privatized policing. The firm was created to investigate and prosecute fraud cases. We do not defend fraudsters. As an ancillary service to our investigative networks, we defend police and private sector investigators in all forms of actions, and provide complementary litigation consulting to the police and private investigation communities. We welcome your inquiries.


Based on his experience in bankruptcy and insolvency law with Bennett Bankruptcy Law, Russell is excited to join Investigation Counsel Professional Corporation to focus on fraud recovery litigation in addition to his bankruptcy and insolvency practice, and to engage in cases that feature both areas of law.


Russell graduated from Western University with a B.Sc. in Biology in 1991, and then completed an honours year with honours in Environment and Resource Studies at the University of Waterloo in 1992. Russell completed his law degree at the University of Windsor in1995, and then articled at Minden Gross LLP for a year before being called to the Bar of Ontario in 1997. He completed his certificate in acting at the Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theatre in New York City in 2000, and his certificate in Entertainment Administration from the University of British Columbia in 2011
