Asad Ali Moten is a commercial litigator with broad subject matter experience. Asad has represented clients and argued successfully before various tribunals, the Ontario Court of Justice, the Superior Court of Justice, the Divisional Court, and the Ontario Court of Appeal.

Informed by his varied legal experience, Asad brings an insider’s edge to his litigation practice.

As a Crown counsel with the Ministry of the Attorney General, Asad spent years representing the public interest and defending Ontario in all types of litigation matters including commercial, administrative, health, negligence, environmental, police accountability, and regulatory matters.

Asad also worked as an adjudicator sitting on the Licence Appeal Tribunal and Fire Safety Commission. In that capacity, he acted as the decision maker in matters dealing with new home construction warranties (i.e. Tarion warranties), violations under the Ontario Fire Code and Building Code, and licensing under the Motor Vehicle Dealers Act, 2002, Liquor Licence Act, Horse Racing Licence Act, 2015, and others. As an adjudicator and former arbitral secretary, Asad learned first-hand how decision makers think.

Asad also has experience negotiating complex agreements with public and quasi-public bodies.  Through this, he learned to incorporate the principles of prevention and risk-mitigation into his advocacy arsenal.

Asad takes pride in being a strong communicator, both with his clients and on their behalf. He understands that litigation is the intersection between people’s stories and the law and knows that his job is to tell his clients’ stories in a digestible and convincing manner.

Outside of the office, Asad is actively engaged in the Toronto arts community as a former board member on several community arts organizations.  He and his family enjoy exploring Ontario’s great outdoors, making frequent trips to museums and art galleries, and cheering on the Toronto Raptors.
