Irwin Nathanson, QC is one of the top trial and appellate lawyers in British Columbia and Canada. His practice centers around complex corporate and commercial files: contract and property disputes, shareholder remedies and derivative actions, pension litigation, professional negligence claims, and securities matters. Irwin appears regularly before all levels of court. He was recently successful before the Supreme Court of Canada in Wastech v. GVS&DD, 2021 SCC 7, a decision which will have important implications for contracts that provide one party with discretionary powers. Irwin won before the BC Court of Appeal in Concord Pacific Acquisitions Inc. v. Oei, 2022 BCCA 16, which dismissed Concord’s appeal of a 2019 trial decision involving a claim in excess of $350 million brought by Concord against three named defendants, including renowned Singaporean businessman, Hong Leong Oei. After the success at trial, Irwin continued to act for Mr. Oei during the course of Concord’s appeal. There remains to be determined the order of special costs against Concord, which is estimated to be in excess of $4 million. Irwin actively mentors NST’s exceptional cohort of associates to foster their development into highly skilled litigators thereby ensuring NST’s continued and future excellence.
