Scott Chambers

Associate

Scott has been practicing law since 2005, after first being called to the bar in Ontario. Throughout his career Scott has focused his practice almost exclusively on Employment and Human Resources law and Commercial Litigation with emphasis on shareholder and partnership disputes. Scott relocated to Kelowna after he was called to the British Columbia Bar in 2017. Scott brings with him extensive experience in advising clients, written and oral advocacy, mediations, negotiated out-of-court settlements, examinations and, if necessary, trials.

I enjoy working with businesses and Human Resources professionals in ensuring their compliance with employment legislation and the common law. Additionally, I derive great pleasure advising and assisting business professionals with internal and external disputes that arise in the course of their business operations. While litigation may ultimately be necessary for the resolution of an employment or commercial dispute, often early and proactive advocacy on behalf of my clients can avoid the need to litigate. I place particular emphasis on comprehensive and open communication with clients to ensure that they are fully apprised of the legal issues, the costs and consequences of their particular matter.

Having recently moved to Kelowna from Toronto I am enjoying exploring the city and finding new ways to get actively involved in the community through volunteering. When I am not working, I enjoy travelling, photography and biking.
