With the same vigour that he brings as a champion football coach, Nawaz Tahir approaches litigation with a relentless and singular focus on one goal:  Success for his clients.  A defensive coordinator and former head coach of championship-winning high school football teams, Nawaz knows that success on a football field or a courtroom is not attainable without a game plan.  A game plan that cannot be one size fits all.  From the Court of Appeal to the License Appeals Tribunal, from representing various insurers in the Toronto Propane class action to having one of the first successful catastrophic impairment decisions at the LAT, Nawaz has appeared at and had success at all levels of Courts and Tribunals in Ontario.

When not battling in a courtroom (or on a football field), Nawaz is passionate about public speaking – to clients, industry groups, and fellow lawyers.  He served as an adjunct professor at Western Law School, where he taught Civil Procedure.  He is a community leader, serving on the Board of St. Joseph’s Hospital where he chairs their People and Mission Committee; serving on the Board of the YMCA of Southwestern Ontario where he chairs their Governance Committee; and serving on the Board of the Hikma Public Affairs Council where he is chair of the Board.  He is a champion for democracy and political participation, co-editing a book on Democracy and co-chairing an International Conference at Western University on the subject of Islam and Democracy.

A leader.  A negotiator.  A relentless advocate.  Nawaz is always looking forward to the next challenge and appreciates the opportunity to work on your case.
