Thomas McRae was born and raised in Toronto, and obtained his law degree in 1989 from the University of Toronto. Upon his call to the bar in 1991 (when he was awarded the Law Society First Prize), he commenced practising with Shibley Righton.

Tom enjoys a broadly-based litigation practice, before all levels of courts in Ontario, as well as the Tax Court of Canada, the Federal Court of Canada and the Supreme Court of Canada. Tom also represents his clients in mediations, arbitrations and before a wide range of administrative tribunals and at professional disciplinary hearings. His practice includes matters of commercial litigation, administrative law, bankruptcy and insolvency, estate litigation, tax litigation and employment litigation.

Tom has taught Civil Procedure at the Bar Admission Course of the Law Society of Upper Canada, where his classes were generally well attended due, it is widely believed, solely to their brevity.

Tom believes that the same “no-nonsense” approach he brings to the practice of law should also apply to lawyers biographies. However, after being shown a number of ways to make his biography “better”, which were followed by threats of applications for injunctive relief, and minutes of settlement which contain provisions ensuring their confidentiality, Tom is prepared to confirm that he is not as “dull” as some people suggest his biography is.
