Craig Parks grew up in Winnipeg where he received his undergrad degree in French and Economics. Moving to Queens for law school, he took up permanent residence in Toronto in 1977. Following graduation from law school, he took a position as first legal counsel to CMRRA and then first legal counsel to PROCAN (predecessor to SOCAN). Following stints at downtown law firms, Craig was invited to act as Senior Counsel to the Copyright Board on its first major hearing. Since 1990, he has been a sole practitioner specializing in copyright and entertainment law, with much of his practice relating to music. A musician himself, Craig finds it easy to relate to artists and songwriters but also brings those sensibilities to his “corporate” clients in the music industry.
