Kagan Shastri LLP was founded in 1994 and is a well-established boutique law firm located in the Yorkville area of downtown Toronto, Ontario. The firm focuses on providing sound, practical solutions to our clients’ problems through high quality and cost effective legal services.

Kagan Shastri LLP is committed to excellence in the practice of law. We strive for the highest degree of professionalism in our knowledge and appreciation of the law and in the quality of our work. In our dealings with clients, we understand that business is not conducted in a legal vacuum and that clients need certainty. Solutions to today’s complex problems do not necessarily fit neatly into pre-existing legal solutions and we, therefore, strive to employ strategies which are both legally sound and mindful of the objectives sought by our clients.

At Kagan Shastri LLP our scope of legal services includes municipal and planning law (including all aspects of real estate development and draft plan approvals), expropriations, aggregate licensing, civil and commercial litigation, commercial real estate and leasing, employment law and estate planning.

The firm has been consistently ranked as one of the Top 10 Municipal and Planning Law firms within the Greater Toronto Area by Novae Res Urbis, a leading trade industry publication within the Municipal and Planning field. In fact the firm regularly ranks 1st, 2nd or 3rd in the Greater Toronto Area.

Our client base includes a wide variety of private and public companies, financial institutions, public sector interests and entrepreneurial clients both nationally and internationally. We are privileged to represent some of the largest municipalities and public agencies as well as some of the top tier companies in Ontario.
