aperçu

Joshua Chad is an associate in the firm's Competition and Antitrust Group. He is developing a broad practice focused on all aspects of competition law, including merger review, cartels and price fixing defence, abuse of dominance and advertising matters.

Joshua joined McMillan as a summer student in 2011, returned to complete his articles in 2013, and was subsequently called to the bar in 2013. He received his JD at the University of Toronto.

During the first semester of his third year of law school, Joshua participated in an exchange program at the Center for Transnational Legal Studies in London, England. Joshua engaged with legal students from around the world and gained an intimate understanding of international, comparative and transnational law.

Before attending law school, Joshua studied finance and obtained an Honours Bachelor of Business Administration degree from the Richard Ivey School of Business at the University of Western Ontario.

Joshua is an avid fan of tennis and the Toronto Maple Leafs, although only tennis tends to provide him with any joy.
