Portrait of lawyer Ben Grant

Ben practices commercial and public law litigation with the firm.

Ben has experience in a variety of disputes, including judicial reviews, shareholder disputes, class actions, trade disputes, and tax objections and appeals. He has appeared before the Supreme Court of Canada, the Federal Court of Appeal, the Federal Court, and the Ontario Superior Court of Justice.

Ben is also one of few counsel in Canada with litigation experience under Canada’s interprovincial trade agreements (the Agreement on Internal Trade, replaced by the Canadian Free Trade Agreement). In particular, Ben acted as lead counsel in a challenge to the charges applied to beer sold in Alberta.

Before joining the firm, Ben worked as a law clerk for the Honourable David Stratas, judge of the Federal Court of Appeal, one of Canada’s leading jurists in the area of administrative and public law. There he researched points of law, prepared legal memoranda, and assisted Justice Stratas in a wide range of areas, including tax, trade law, competition law, access to information law, and constitutional law.

In his spare time, Ben tries his hand at brewing beer, but keeps a few bottles from one of Ottawa’s many fine microbreweries in the fridge just in case.
