Rajinder S. Sahota


Rajinder Sahota is a Partner at Acheson Law. He began his legal career practicing as a corporate lawyer at major multinational law firms in New York and Toronto. He subsequently returned to British Columbia where he has committed himself to representing physically and psychologically inured people instead of corporations; this includes individuals who have suffered catastrophic injuries in: (a) negligence claims generally and against government institutions, (b) defective product claims, (c) medical malpractice suits, and (d) class actions. He has argued cases at all levels of the British Columbia and Federal Courts.

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.
