Ashu is a passionate advocate for her clients. She knows her files, the related law and has little tolerance for vexatious claims. Her unreported decisions include two successful Divisional Court appeals, including one reversing a motion judge’s decision on costs. In fact, Ashu has been successful in obtaining costs for her clients in every manner of proceeding she has been engaged and at various stages in a file, whether on motions, at FSCO or at the conclusion of matters before the Superior and Divisional Court.
Ashu started her career at a boutique insurance defence firm in Barrie, honing her advocacy skills in a general tort practice, which included property damage, subrogation, commercial general liability and motor vehicle accidents. Since 2009, Ashu has focused almost exclusively on accident benefit claims, including loss transfer and priority disputes.
Over the years her clients have come to call upon her to deal compassionately with vulnerable, complicated claimants and assertively with over reaching clinics, counsel, claimants and medical practitioners.
