Rajinder S. Sahota


Raj began his legal career practicing as a corporate lawyer at major multinational law firms in New York and Toronto. However, after several years of practicing corporate law in the big cities, Raj returned to his hometown of Victoria where he commits himself to representing people instead of corporations. In 2013 Raj joined Acheson Sweeney Foley Sahota, where he dedicates his career to representing people injured due to the fault of others. This includes people injured due to defective products and people injured at the hands of government institutions.

Working with Deborah Acheson Q.C. and Kevin Whitley (both now retired), Raj’s practice has exposed him to class-action lawsuits that have resolved with the payment of fair and substantial compensation to class members. See our class actions page for more information.

Raj has argued cases at all levels of court in British Columbia and in the Federal Courts.
