He has appeared before the Supreme Court and the Court of Appeal of British Columbia, and the Federal Court of Canada, as well as before courts at all levels in South Africa. 

During his years at a large international firm, Ron acted as lead Counsel on complex litigation cases before starting his own litigation boutique where he practiced for 17 years.
