Wendy Thiessen

Associate Counsel

Wendy is an experienced commercial litigator. She maintains a broad civil litigation practice, guiding individuals and businesses through contract, property, real estate and business disputes. She also actively practices in the areas of estate and construction disputes, as well as administrative law matters. Wendy frequently appears at the Supreme Court of British Columbia (and formerly all levels of the Alberta courts). As an advocate she is tenacious, persuasive, and well-prepared. She is known for the strength of her legal analysis.

As a litigator, I pride myself on unraveling often complicated facts and quickly identifying the crux of the issue. While confident in the court room, I believe that most disputes can and should be settled outside of court through negotiation or mediation. I enjoy teaching the legal landscape to my clients and working with them to find meaningful solutions.

I graduated second in my law school class from the University of Alberta, receiving the silver medal in law. I clerked with the Alberta Court of King’s Bench and was called to the bar in Alberta in 2009.

I practiced litigation at an established firm in Edmonton and then as counsel to the Department of Environment with the Government of Alberta where I represented statutory decision-makers on environmental appeals. I also co-taught an environmental law course to business law students at the University of Alberta.

I have been practicing civil litigation in Kelowna since 2018 (and I am still thrilled to be in the Okanagan). I currently serve as vice-chair of the board of directors for the Kelowna Gospel Mission, a not-for-profit society providing shelter, food, and transition services to Kelowna’s unhoused.
