Nikhil Mukherjee

Nikhil has practiced with Rogerson Law Group since being called to the Bar in January 2021.

During that time, he has gained broad experience in civil litigation, with an emphasis on proceedings involving deceaseds’ estates. Most recently, Nikhil appeared in the Court of Appeal, where he defeated an appeal by an unsuccessful will challenger on the issues of incapacity, including insane delusions and undue influence (Roe v Roe, 2024 ONCA 179). He had earlier appeared with Andrew Rogerson and Robert Rastorp in a three-week trial in the court below, in which they succeeded in proving the will of their client’s late mother (Roe v Roe, 2022 ONSC 5821). Nikhil’s factum in the Court of Appeal can be found here.

Nikhil is developing an opinion-writing practice with a particular interest in property disputes, trusts, and closely held corporations and accepts instructions from litigants, insurers, executors and administrators, and fellow practitioners. He regularly emphasizes to potential litigation clients the importance of coolly evaluating the strength of their case before embarking on proceedings. Additionally, he welcomes the opportunity to draft and to advise on wills, inter vivos trusts and conveyances taking effect under the Settled Estates Act.

Nikhil is able to assist French speakers with legal matters in Ontario.


Nikhil holds a J.D. from the University of Toronto, Faculty of Law. He was an undergraduate at the University of Oxford, earning a B.A. in Literae Humaniores (Classics).
