Our Legal Team

Nigel J. Forster


I believe that a multi-disciplinary, team-oriented approach is often both the most efficient, and the most effective, in the practice of law.

WeirBowen Best Lawyers 2020

Since my call to the bar August 14, 2009, I have been continuously engaged in the practice of civil litigation.

I have had the privilege of representing my clients before all levels of trial courts in Alberta, the Court of Appeal of Alberta, and in applications to the Supreme Court of Canada. I have also represented my clients at various administrative, disciplinary, board, and tribunal hearings, as well as before mediators and arbitrators.

I have experience in a number of areas of law, ranging from medical malpractice and personal injury, to commercial and construction disputes, professional discipline, and employment disputes. My philosophy of practice is to help my clients determine and execute the best possible legal strategy, whether they are advancing litigation, defending a claim, or considering their options.

I am a recovering parent of young children and I never miss an opportunity to meet over coffee. In our spare time, my family and I enjoy travel, cooking, and outdoor activities.
