Amir Sodagar – Construction
Amir Sodagar is an Associate in our Construction Practice Group. 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.
Prior to his legal career, Amir worked as a consultant at an international earth 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.
