Having spent the last decade in private insurance defence practice, Sven’s focus is on defending personal injury claims for large institutional insurers.  His practice includes complex accident benefits disputes, as well as advising clients on matters from catastrophic claims, fraud issues, and priority and loss transfer matters.

Sven has represented insurers before all levels of court, FSCO, and now, he frequently appears before the License Appeal Tribunal (LAT).  At the LAT, he has successfully argued for insurers in decisions regarding catastrophic claims and assessments, settlement validity, and the Minor Injury Guideline.

As the Vice-Chair of the Canadian Defence Lawyers’ Accident Benefits Substantive Law Committee, and the editor of SM Caselaw News (the province’s leading LAT decision analysis publication), Sven is always up-to-date on the latest accident benefits decisions.

Prior to being called to the Ontario Bar in 2007, Sven attended law school in Michigan and was admitted to the State Bar of Michigan in 2005.

When not in the office, he enjoys spending time with his wife and two children in their hometown of Mississauga.
