Brandon Cook

Brandon is keen, enthusiastic and eager to develop a practice in insurance litigation.

Having completed his articles at the firm before being called to the Bar in 2018, he has had the opportunity to work on complex insurance litigation, with a focus on professional negligence, first-party property damage claims, insurance fraud and coverage matters. Brandon has a particular interest in professional liability matters and the defence of professionals.

During his time at Western Law, Brandon volunteered as a caseworker for Community Legal Services. It was there that he began developing his empathetic and client-centered approach to his practice of law, representing individuals charged with criminal and provincial offences. Brandon frequently appears before the Ontario Superior Court and Ontario Small Claims Court, and has also been involved in appeals before the Ontario Court of Appeal.

Outside the courtroom, Brandon is an avid concert and music festival goer, reader, craft beer enthusiast and enjoys spending time at his family’s cottage.
