Asher is a dynamic lawyer practicing civil, commercial and constitutional litigation in Toronto and across Ontario. He acts for both plaintiffs and defendants and has successfully represented clients at all stages of the litigation process, from complex motions, to trials, both jury and non-jury, and appeals. He has appeared at every level of court in Ontario, along with the Supreme Court of Canada.
Asher became a partner at a Bay St. firm just five years after being called to the Bar. The reason is simple – he has a proven track record, offers competitive rates, and is extremely dedicated to client satisfaction. Asher is known for his passionate advocacy inside the courtroom while always taking the time with his clients to ensure that they are comfortable with the litigation process and action plan.
In 2021, Asher co-founded Jordan Honickman Barristers with his longtime partner and colleague, Michael Jordan.
Asher has co-founded two legal societies, Advocates for the Rule of Law (ARL) in 2014, followed by the Runnymede Society in 2016. ARL has intervened several times before the Supreme Court of Canada, while the Runnymede Society has established chapters in law schools across Canada.
Asher’s writing has appeared in the National Post, the Toronto Star and other news media and he has published scholarly articles in several legal journals. His work has been cited by the Supreme Court of Canada along with other Canadian courts.
Asher has also appeared on CBC, CTV and on various radio shows to discuss the legal issues of the day.
In 2020, Asher was the recipient of the prestigious Dan Soberman Outstanding Young Alumni Award (for early-career success) from his alma mater, Queen’s Law. The award recognized that Asher “has become a respected public voice on legal issues.”
In his spare time, Asher enjoys playing music, hockey, reading and writing, and, above all, spending time with his wife and two young daughters.
