What my clients say

"Eytan instilled confidence by providing simple, straightforward explanations of the law and how it applied to my situation. He also made me feel valued as a client by understanding my needs and communicating clearly and in a timely manner."


Eytan is an associate lawyer in the Employment Law Group at Nelligan Law.

Eytan supports both employers and employees in navigating the modern workplace by providing advice on all elements of and at all stages of the employment relationship.

Eytan understands that moving through the legal system can often feel overwhelming and stressful, whether you are an employer or an employee. When working with his clients, he makes it a priority to clearly explain each step of the process and guide them to the best possible resolution that aligns with their interests.

Prior to joining Nelligan Law, Eytan practiced with a mid-sized firm in Ottawa in the areas of employment law and commercial litigation.

Eytan also has extensive experience in court and tribunals, having appeared before the Ontario Court of Appeal, the Ontario Superior Court of Justice and the Ontario Labour Relations Board as well as having represented clients in matters at the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario.

Outside of the office, Eytan enjoys live music, cooking for his wife and daughter, and powerlifting- a sport in which he is a former national medalist in the bench press discipline.
