2021 First-Year Summer Class, Toronto
Ishaan hopes to leverage his background in science, business and technology to bring a fresh perspective to analyzing and solving legal challenges.
He chose Davies because of our collegial atmosphere, top-notch legal professionals and generalist approach, which will allow him to become well-versed in all aspects of corporate law.
Is there a practice area or industry in which you are particularly interested?
Given my prior career as a technology consultant, I have a particular interest in corporate law and technology law, both as separate areas and together as a fascinating intersection of legal work.
What experience, job or internship have you learned the most from or found most rewarding?
My internship with a boutique financial services advisory firm was an especially formative experience. I had the opportunity to travel to Washington, D.C., to witness the creation of new policy for the insurance industry. Seeing the critical interaction between business leaders and lawmakers was a pivotal driver in my transition from business to law.
Aside from your studies, what else do you like to spend time doing?
I am an avid sports fan, space enthusiast and amateur stand-up comedian (but was told I would be better off going to law school).
