Mr. Nisar is an experienced litigator with a versatile legal background in a number of practice areas. Mr. Nisar primarily practices in the area of employment discrimination, sexual harassment, and commercial litigation.
Mahir received his education at Vanderbilt University and Hofstra University School of Law, an institution now known as Maurice A. Deane School of Law.

Mr. Nisar handled all aspects of litigation and earned an impressive record of favorable results for his clients.
Mr. Nisar has represented both plaintiffs and defendants, giving him the versatility and important insight to anticipate his opponent’s strategies. Due to his former experience as a tennis professional, his anticipatory aggression and gentle diplomacy make him a force to be reckoned with in the courtroom. With that being said, his vast experience of conducting both numerous bench trials and jury trials have made him no stranger to alternative dispute resolution methods such as negotiation, mediation, and arbitration.
