Associate

Milad Javdan practices primarily in the area of insurance law, with particular focus on personal injury, motor vehicle claims, and general insurance defence litigation.

Prior to joining Lindsay LLP, Milad articled at a personal injury law firm based out of downtown Vancouver after completing his legal studies at Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops, British Columbia. He was called to the bar in December 2018.

Milad has particular interest in law of contracts. This interest led him to co-publish an article with Dr. Christopher Hunt in University of Toronto’s Canadian Business Law Journal. The publication explores the doctrine of fundamental breach and enforceability of exculpatory clauses in contracts and has been cited by the Quebec Court of Appeal as it continues to be a valuable resource for legal practitioners across Canada.

During Milad’s law school career, he assisted a number of professors in research in various areas, including corporate social responsibility, guardianship tribunals, and contract law. He also severed as the managing editor of Thompson Rivers University’s law review, the Canadian Journal of Comparative and Contemporary Law and oversaw all aspects of editorship from preliminary matters to publication of the 2017 volume, Problems of Interpretation in International Law.

Outside of the office, Milad enjoys travelling with his wife, playing basketball, and maintaining a healthy life-style.  He has also been an avid Toronto Raptors supporter since the inception of the team in 1995.
