Jason Hayward

Jason Hayward is an associate lawyer in Gowling WLG's Toronto office and member of the firm's Real Estate and Banking & Finance groups.

Jason focused his time as a summer and articling student on litigation, an experience that found him working on many complex files in small claims court involving contract disputes and tortious claims.

Since his call to the Bar in 2016, Jason has largely centred his practice on real estate financing, including corporate and real estate due diligence in transactional and financing contexts, primarily acting for both lenders and corporate borrowers in asset-based lending and real estate financing, as well as for receivers and secured creditors on insolvency matters. He has rich experience drafting and negotiating contract terms, including ancillary and corporate documentation, and undertaking multi-purpose reviews of real property titles, security positions and general corporate matters.

Prior to law school, Jason worked as a contractor throughout southern Ontario, an experience that underscored for him the importance of possessing a strong work ethic despite hard labour and harsh conditions. Jason's diverse career experience, including his time as a blue collar worker, gives him unique insight into the challenges many of his clients face and positions him to serve them better on a number of fronts.
