Tahir Khorasanee
Associate

Tahir Khorasanee regularly appears on the media to discuss employment issues. His diverse background, strong litigation style and exceptional negotiation skills make him ideal for both employers and employees. Tahir’s practice focuses on complex employment, labour and human rights disputes at all levels of court, the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario, the Canadian Human Rights Commission and the Ministry of Labour. He also practices commercial and complex insurance litigation.

He is a member of the Ontario Bar Association Council and the Chair of its Young Lawyers Division. He was previously the vice chair and regional representative of the Young Lawyers Division, a newsletter editor of the Alternate Dispute Resolution section and a newsletter editor of the Constitutional, Civil Liberties and Human Rights section of the Ontario Bar Association.

Tahir articled for a reputable litigation boutique and was hired back for his tenacity to dig deep. He has the honour of being one of the few litigators in Canada to have conducted a 3-week jury trial in his first year of practice. He has several court victories under his belt.

Tahir has completed his Bachelors in Economics at York University and graduated with honours. Tahir has experience working in the financial services industry; he understands numbers and always has one eye on his client’s bottom line.

Tahir had outstanding academic achievements in law school. Upon graduation, Tahir won a leadership award for his involvement in extra-curricular activities including moot court competitions both at the law school and international level. He represented Wales at the International Court of Justice as a participant in the prestigious Telders International Law Moot Court Competition. He won first prize at several law school mock trials and moot court competitions and was recognized for both oral and written advocacy.

After law school, Tahir continued to pursue his academic interests, which unsurprisingly were civil litigation and dispute resolution. He received a 3.8 G.P.A. at Osgoode Hall Law School and is an anomaly in the legal profession for having received a Master of Laws degree.

In his spare time, Tahir loves to play baseball, travel and spend time with his family.
