Tara Vasdani is the Principal Lawyer and Founder of Remote Law Canada, a law firm specializing in Civil Litigation, Employment Law, and Remote Work. In 2018 and 2019, she was nominated for Canadian Lawyer’s Top 25 Most Influential Lawyers, and in 2019, she was featured in Forbes.
Tara is dedicated to advocating for her clients, from the initial consultation stage, through to negotiations, and if necessary, trial – using legal technology, artificial intelligence, and solid litigation experience. Prior to founding Remote Law Canada, Tara worked as a civil, subrogation and employment litigator on Bay Street. In January 2018, she set a worldwide precedent as the first Canadian and international lawyer to serve a Statement of Claim using the popular social media app, Instagram.
Tara frequently appears before the Superior Court of Justice, the Ontario Court of Justice, the Ministry of Labour, the Financial Services Tribunal, and the Provincial Offences Court, on various civil litigation matters. She advises both employers and employees in wrongful dismissal, constructive dismissal, human rights claims, contract negotiations, and other employment-related disputes, and she has represented all national insurers in subrogation-related matters, such as construction litigation and contractor’s negligence, property damage, occupier and product liability, and contractual disputes. In addition, Tara assists clients in personal injury, debt enforcement, cryptocurrency, shareholder and commercial disputes, and bankruptcy proceedings.
Tara earned two law degrees, both common and civil, from the University of Ottawa, and entirely in French. This allowed her to become well-versed in both Canadian jurisdictions, and today she is fluently bilingual, as well as qualified to represent clients across Canada.
