Mohit Malhotra

Mohit Malhotra is a civil litigator in Gowling WLG's Calgary office. His primary practice area is insurance litigation, and he is focused on defending insured parties involved in damage claims in Alberta, including complex and high-exposure claims. 

Mohit has more than three years of experience defending insured businesses and individuals in a variety of complex litigation matters, including disputes involving motor vehicle accidents and other personal injury claims, commercial property damage, subrogation and coverage claims. He uses a creative approach to dispute resolution that he tailors to his clients' goals and the unique circumstances of each case.

While Mohit excels in courtroom battles, he also focuses on helping clients take advantage of various forms of alternative dispute resolution to avoid the risk and expense of prolonged litigation and jury trials, including private mediation, judicial mediation, and arbitration.

Before moving to Canada, Mohit practiced civil litigation for two years in his native India. After graduating from Osgoode Hall Law School in Toronto, he worked on the regulatory and compliance side of the insurance industry with the Financial Services Commission of Ontario (FSCO, now FSRA), where he also completed his articling year.

His work for FSCO spurred his interest in insurance law, and he later worked as in-house counsel in the claims department of a national insurer for two years before moving to private practice. Mohit worked at a medium-sized law firm in Calgary for 18 months before joining Gowling WLG.

Outside of the office, Mohit enjoys playing cricket and spending time with his family and friends.
