Jeffrey brings a diverse range of experience to Levitt Sheikh including researching and writing on some of Canada’s highest-profile issues. Recently, Jeffrey was part of the research team that developed and implemented a new national code of conduct for sport called the Universal Code of Conduct to Prevent and Address Maltreatment in Sport (“UCCMS”), which addressed the issue of abuse in all levels of sports in Canada. He also worked on combating corruption in Olympic sports with a particular focus on boxing.

Jeffrey attended law school at Western University, where he worked for Western’s Community Legal Services, attending client-intake interviews. His empathy and understanding enabled him to appreciate and act in his clients’ best interests.
