More Information:

Santhosh Valavi stands out as a Senior Associate on the Corporate Commercial team, where he shines in the realms of Infrastructure and Public-Private Partnerships. His noteworthy contribution was pivotal in guiding the Windsor-Detroit Bridge Authority (WDBA) through a multifaceted procurement process. This process not only harmonized the needs of various jurisdictions and agencies but also established a foundation for the project's design, construction, maintenance, and financing, based on a Public-Private Partnership model.

Beyond his project work, Santhosh leads the Land Acknowledgement Sub-committee at Fasken. This role underscores his dedication to honoring Indigenous territories during firm events and fostering a respectful dialogue about Indigenous history and cultures. This initiative aligns with Fasken’s Reconciliation Plan, emphasizing the firm's commitment to reconciliation. Moreover, his membership in the Communication Sub-committee ensures the Reconciliation Plan remains current and accessible, reflecting the firm's ongoing dedication to these values.

Prior to his tenure at Fasken, Santhosh gained valuable experience during an internship with the Department of Justice Canada's Aboriginal Division in Toronto, where he handled civil litigation files concerning the federal government. This experience enriched his understanding of Indigenous legal matters, laying a solid foundation for his current roles.

Santhosh's legal journey is marked by its diversity, encompassing cross-jurisdictional and international work across transactional, advisory, and litigation domains. His international perspective is broad, having practiced business law in Dubai, where he advised on legal and regulatory matters affecting daily business operations, and litigation in India, appearing regularly in court and before administrative tribunals.

His academic credentials are equally impressive, holding a certificate in Public-Private Partnership Law and Practice from Osgoode Hall Law School at York University, an LLM in International and European Law from Aberdeen University, and an LLB from Mysore University.

Santhosh’s affiliation with the Canadian and Ontario Bar Associations further illustrates his commitment to the legal profession and continuous professional development.

Santhosh Valavi's multifaceted legal practice, combined with his contributions to reconciliation and respect for Indigenous cultures, makes him a valuable asset to Fasken and the broader legal community.
