About M. Kathleen Kinch
Kat Kinch has been practising law since 2006. She is a graduate of McMaster University’s Arts & Science programme and UBC Faculty of Law. While attending UBC, she was named one of Maclean’s magazine’s “Best and Brightest” university scholars, and received the Raymond G. Herbert award for best all-round graduating student in her law school class. She then spent a year as a judicial law clerk at the British Columbia Supreme Court, the trial-level court in that province. She practised at a large litigation firm in downtown Vancouver until 2014, representing professionals in civil litigation and professional regulation matters, and acting for individuals in family law disputes. She also served as co-counsel in the first modern prosecution of polygamy in Canada, and as a deputy independent supervising solicitor in a court-ordered investigation. She was on the litigation team in DESWUAV v. Canada (B.C.S.C., B.C.C.A. and S.C.C., now the leading decision on public interest standing in Canada) and in DESWUAV’s successful intervention in Canada v. Bedford (Ont. C.A. and Supreme Court of Canada).
Ms. Kinch has since returned to her hometown of Warkworth, Ontario and has established a litigation practice based in Campbellford, where she attended high school. While at Campbellford District High School, she was awarded the Pinkerton scholarship and the 1997 Governor General’s Academic Bronze Medal for the top student in the graduating high school class.
Ms. Kinch and her family enjoy small-town life and village activities. Ms. Kinch is pleased to serve the legal needs of the community that provided her first jobs and early education.
