Associate announcement

McLeish Orlando welcomes Brandon Pedersen as an Associate

July 6, 2021

Brandon joined McLeish Orlando as a summer student and went on to complete his articles with the firm. After his call to the bar in June 2021, Brandon joined the firm as an associate.

When Brandon was young, two of his family members were killed in a motor vehicle crash as a result of a negligent driver. This motivated Brandon to attend law school and pursue a career as a personal injury lawyer and advocate on behalf of those affected by negligence. Brandon received an Honours Bachelor of Arts degree from the Western University, majoring in Political Science, and earned his law degree from Western University.

While at law school, Brandon served as a volunteer caseworker and student director at one of Western Law’s legal clinics. Brandon was also heavily involved in Western Law’s mentorship program, providing guidance and support to fellow law students. In addition, Brandon was a three-year member of both the Western Law Men’s Hockey Team and the Law Games Team, where he competed in everything from ultimate frisbee to ball hockey.

Brandon is a member of the Ontario Trial Lawyers’ Association, the Toronto Lawyers Association, the Ontario Bar Association, Canadian Bar Association, and the Law Society of Ontario.
