Ben Noorduyn

Benjamin J. Noorduyn

Associate

Year of call: 2016

Year joined SF: 2015

Years in practice: 6

Benjamin Noorduyn’s practice includes wills and estate planning, estate administration, estate litigation, corporate and commercial litigation, real estate litigation, personal injury litigation, insurance defence and enforcement.

Ben earned a Bachelor of Life Science summa cum laude from McMaster University and was on the verge of completing a combined Honours Bachelor of Biology and Psychology when he was accepted into Queens Law before completing the regular 4-year undergraduate track.

Ben is the very definition of nice guy. His ability to handle himself on cases and in a courtroom should not be underestimated. In first year law school, he was already advocating matters before the Social Benefits Tribunal, the Social Security Tribunal, the Criminal Injuries Compensation Board, the Landlord and Tenant Board and the Ontario Court of Justice. He has reported decisions from his law school days (2013 ONSBT 2313 and 2013 ONSBT 5266) and has continued to represent clients before various levels of court – mainly the Superior Court of Justice and Divisional Court – since he articled and joined the firm as an Associate in 2016

His ability to generate creative solutions challenges the very practice of law. Combined with his eye for detail and knowledge of the law, Ben is a powerhouse in the Hamilton legal community.

Outside the office, Ben is a commissioned officer with the CAF Reserves, serving with the 713 Thunderbolt Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron in Stoney Creek. He is the squadron training officer and Effective Speaking / Debate coach and is always seeking new experiences for his cadets (please contact Ben with any leads you might have).

Ben has what some may consider “unconventional” recreational interests. He enjoys hiking, target shooting and relaxing with a glass of red wine or scotch while listening to heavy metal. More conventionally, he has been known to partake in night late-night conversations with friends as they share their solutions to our world’s problems.
