Nisha came to Gilbert’s after several years at a global law firm based here in Toronto, where she represented pharmaceutical clients in complex, multi-jurisdictional patent-related cases. Nisha is a scientist-turned-litigator with a doctorate in molecular biology, genetics and cancer – so, the pharmaceutical bent to her global practice makes sense. While Nisha remains oddly enthusiastic about all things pharma, she now enjoys a more diverse litigation practice.
Nisha has represented clients before the Ontario Superior Court, and Federal Court of Canada; and like any ambitious Canadian litigator, Nisha looks very forward to the day she can add the Supreme Court of Canada to the list!
When Nisha is not lawyering or conducting complicated science experiments in her kitchen, she volunteers on the board of a local legal clinic, spends as much time outdoors as humanly possible, and indulges her sense of humour with books, YouTube videos, or conversations with people she thinks are hilarious.
