I provide litigation counsel to individuals and companies involved in a wide range of complex business disputes. I’m always looking for the best way to solve the problem at hand – typically through a careful analysis of the case, and strategic negotiation with the other parties involved.
I’ll work hard to find a genuine solution to your dispute – but if a case can’t be settled, I won’t hesitate to go to court.
After many years at large firms – working for large corporations – I started Hirji Law Corporation in January 2014 to focus on representing small and medium sized businesses. The entrepreneurial spirit that fuels your small business fuels my small firm too.
My experience spans many different industries, including the technology sector, retail, banking, real estate development, construction, mining, and manufacturing.
Some of my recent cases include:
I go to court on behalf of my clients on a regular basis. I have appeared in the the B.C. Provincial Court, the British Columbia Supreme Court, the British Columbia Court of Appeal, and I have participated in proceedings before the Supreme Court of Canada.
While working in Ontario (from 2003 to 2006), I appeared in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice, The Court of Appeal for Ontario, and almost every Provincial courthouse between Windsor and Cornwall.
I have also appeared as counsel at various administrative tribunals including the B.C. Surface Rights Board, the B.C. Environmental Appeal Board, the B.C. Property Assessment Appeal Board, The B.C. Oil and Gas Appeal Tribunal, the Ontario Municipal Board, and the Ontario Energy Board.
I am an avid cyclist, hiker, and backpacker. I enjoy traveling, and I have traveled extensively in Canada, the United States, Mexico, India, France, Peru, Argentina, and Chile.
In 2009, I participated in and completed the “Test of Metal”, an off-road bike race covering 67km and more than 1200 meters of elevation gain. I rode the Gran Fondo Whistler in 2011 and 2015, and the Ride to Conquer Cancer (from Vancouver to Seattle) in 2012 and 2013.
Two or three times a week – if you wake up early – you might see me riding my bike over the Lions Gate Bridge into the office.
