Jeremy Gellis is a member in Cozen O’Connor’s White Collar Defense and Investigations practice, representing clients in enforcement and securities regulatory proceedings and related litigation.
Jeremy brings over a decade of experience working in the British Columbia Securities Commission. As manager of the Litigation branch, he oversaw all of the commission’s administrative prosecutions, bringing enforcement actions for fraud, misrepresentation, unregistered trading and advising, the illegal sale of securities, insider trading, and market manipulation. Before that, Jeremy practiced as a criminal defense lawyer at two leading Vancouver firms.
Jeremy’s clients benefit from his extensive experience working with securities regulators across Canada, his role as a member of the Enforcement Committee of the Canadian Securities Administrators, and his ability to create practical solutions to regulatory challenges. Jeremy has a proven track record of finding solutions to issues before they advance to an enforcement stage. However, when litigation is necessary, Jeremy’s experience before securities commissions, all levels of British Columbia courts, and the Supreme Court of Canada are key to his clients’ success.
Jeremy received his J.D. from York University Osgoode Hall Law School, his LL.M. from the University of London, and his B.Com. in finance from McGill University.
