At Osgoode, Mr. Prutschi participated in the Intensive Program in Criminal Law, clerking for Mr. Justice Victor Paisley of the Superior Court of Justice. After articling for the law firm of Goodman Philips & Vineberg (now Goodmans, LLP), Mr. Prutschi started his own practice focused on criminal and quasi-criminal litigation, eventually teaming up with Leo Adler and Boris Bytensky to form the boutique firm of Adler Bytensky Prutschi.
