Steven Sofer is a partner at Gowling WLG, where his practice focuses on securities litigation and actions against the government, including constitutional, human rights and product liability litigation. He has been actively involved in class actions for over 20 years, coordinated internal investigations and responses to regulatory inquiries and represented registrants before regulators. Achieving the best possible results on budget and in a timely manner is Steven’s prime directive. He provides unhedged practical advice, regular prompt and concise reporting and is always available. Where a fair settlement is achievable, and is the optimal result, it is expeditiously obtained. Where settlement is not optimal or possible, litigation or arbitration is vigorously pursued. Steven works well in teams, both with Canadian and foreign lawyers from inside and outside of Gowling WLG. He has appeared at all levels of Court including the Supreme Court of Canada. Steven is particularly proud of his pro bono initiatives.
