Prior to starting his own law firm, Jaspal practiced at a boutique construction law firm in Toronto where he developed his specialization in construction law. In the first few years of practice, He worked at a national firm in Toronto and at a regional insurance defense firm representing insurance companies, professionals, as well as small and medium businesses on various litigation matters including construction disputes.
