Litigator Lincoln Caylor was recently singled out as "…by far one of the most talented and formidable lawyers in the [asset recovery] field" by Who's Who Legal: Canada. His practice is considered to be at the forefront of the economic crime field for leading international asset tracing investigations and pursuing asset recovery litigation and enforcement actions in prominent, high-value financial frauds.
Recognized as "a strong litigator and strong negotiator with a lot of expertise" by Chambers Canada and selected as the sole "Most Highly Regarded Individual" in Toronto by WWL: Canada and Who's Who Legal: Asset Recovery, he regularly directs internal investigations for clients in a range of industries, from financial services to securities to health care.
Lincoln is the only Toronto member of ICC FraudNet, a worldwide network of selected lawyers specialized in asset tracing and recovery. On his clients' behalf, he has appeared before the courts of a number of provinces, including the Ontario Court of Appeal.
Regarded as an influencer, he appeared on Global News 16x9's investigative report: The Billionaire and the Bank, explaining a bank's role in the world's second-largest Ponzi scheme. He previously addressed the Commons Standing Committee on Justice and Human Rights and the Standing Senate Committee on Legal and Constitutional Affairs by request to give evidence regarding sentencing for fraud under Bill C-21, an Act to Amend the Criminal Code.
He is a governor and vice-chairman of Upper Canada College and chairman of the board of trustees of the Barrow Foundation, which provides scholarships to boys attending Upper Canada College. Recently, appointed to serve on the board of the Canadian Institute’s Corporate Liability/White Collar Crime Journal, he is also on the board of directors of the Macdonald Laurier Institute, a non-partisan think tank based in Ottawa. He served a two-year term, as a member of the Investor Advisory Panel to the Ontario Securities Commission.
In 2012, Lincoln was presented with the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal for his contributions to Canada.
