With over a decade of experience representing clients in both BC and Alberta, and across a range of industries, Kim brings a unique and informed perspective to each of her files.
Anchoring her practice in health and insurance law has provided Kim with the foundation to develop specific niche expertise in areas such as administrative, regulatory and disciplinary law, privacy law, and the emerging area of fertility law.
In her insurance practice, Kim provides risk management advice and represents clients in a variety of claims arising from excess automobile insurance policies, homeowners’ policies, product liability claims, slips and falls, and complex personal injury actions. She acts for insurance companies as well as self-insured businesses including numerous large retail chains.
In her health law practice, Kim represents physicians in civil actions, coroners’ inquests, and in matters before the College of Physicians and Surgeons. She also provides advice to physicians on a wide range of medical legal matters. Kim’s practice has evolved to include a focus on privacy issues and she often assists physicians and other professionals with navigating privacy breaches.
Kim has created a name for herself in the relatively new area of fertility law. Her work in this area focuses on cases concerning various technological developments that are advancing more quickly than the law. Her agile thinking and adaptability allow her to keep up to speed in this cutting-edge area of law.
Kim is no stranger to the courtroom and has appeared as counsel at all levels of Court in British Columbia and before various regulatory bodies. With her varied experience and ability to provide creative and out of the box solutions to her clients’ diverse issues, it’s easy to see why Kim is viewed by her peers as a leader in her field.
For Kim, success stems from well-balanced contributions to both her profession and community. She has been involved with various organizations dating back to her time at law school and continues to participate in philanthropic endeavors that benefit those in need around her. She also proudly serves as a volunteer adviser for Life in Law, a free and confidential support forum that aims to stem the exodus of women from the practice of law. Kim is also an Adjunct Professor at the University of Victoria Faculty of Law, where she teaches an upper-year health law course.
