Lenczner Slaght Welcomes Back Chloe, Kate, and Nilou

Lenczner Slaght adds to its collective experience and vast knowledge with the addition of three new associates, bringing Canada’s leading litigation firm to a total of 54 expert litigators.

Chloe Boubalos, Kate Costin, and Nilou Nezhat have all articled at the firm last year and we are delighted to welcome them back as our new associates. All three have worked alongside our senior lawyers and gained firsthand courtroom experience. 

Chloe Boubalos has experience in both commercial litigation and professional liability matters. As a student at the University of Toronto Faculty of Law, Chloe participated in the Wilson Moot, winning best team and best factum. She also volunteered at University of Toronto’s student clinic, the Pro Bono Law Ontario Office at SickKids, and the senior editorial board of the Indigenous Law Journal. Chloe also worked in Iqaluit where she contributed to an Access to Justice initiative.

Kate Costin has broad exposure to complex commercial litigation, employment disputes, real property matters and a number of regulatory proceedings. While attending Dalhousie's Schulich School of Law, Kate was an advocate and Internal Director of Dalhousie Student Advocacy Service, representing students accused of academic and Code of Conduct offences. She participated in the Criminal Clinic, assisting defence counsel on a second-degree murder trial before judge and jury, and represented Dalhousie at the McKelvey Cup. Kate was also a peer educator with Dalhousie's Indigenous Black and Mi'kmaq Initiative.

Nilou Nezhat’s growing experience involves a broad range of practice, including corporate-commercial litigation and professional liability. Prior to being called to the Bar, Nilou summered and articled at Lenczner Slaght, assisting on several injunctions, trials, and appeals. While at law school, Nilou worked as a teaching assistant, and placed in the final round of the Zuber Moot Competition. In her final year, she was the co-chair of the Zuber Moot Committee. Prior to attending law school, Nilou studied Philosophy and Political Studies. 

“Chloe, Kate, and Nilou reflect the skill and experience that our young lawyers have even at the start of their career,” says Peter Griffin. “With our continuing mentorship and the responsibility we give to our young lawyers, they are on the road to being highly sought after litigators."
