Amir Sodagar is an Associate in the Construction Practice Group at WeirFoulds LLP.

Prior to his legal career, Amir worked as a consultant at a leading international engineering firm for more than 6 years. His practical construction and environmental knowledge stems from this experience, where he travelled across Canada to conduct and manage myriad geotechnical, hydrogeological, and environmental assessments and contaminated site remediation. Noteworthy projects include the remediation of the Lac-Mégantic rail disaster; oil, gas and pipeline developments in Alberta, British Columbia and Ontario; hydrogeological and environmental assessments for a major uranium refiner in Ontario; and major remediation and developments across the Greater Toronto Area, including revitalization projects at Toronto’s waterfront and the Eglington Crosstown LRT.

Before joining the firm as a lawyer, Amir developed his legal expertise with WeirFoulds as both an Articling Student and a Summer Student. Amir received his Juris Doctor from the University of Ottawa’s Faculty of Law, where he graduated Cum Laude and was awarded placements on the Dean’s Honour List throughout law school. During his time in law school, Amir served as a legal research assistant, where he advised a non-profit organization with his supervising professor on legal mechanisms to preserve agricultural lands in Ontario.
