Kyle joined Parlee McLaws after a distinguished career practicing civil litigation in Toronto. Of his 10+ years practicing in Ontario, he spent the last 6 years as a partner in a downtown Toronto boutique firm, practicing in various aspects of civil litigation, with a specialization in Insurance Law. Kyle has appeared before all levels of Court in Ontario, and has extensive trial experience before the Superior Court of Ontario, as well as in front of various boards and in private arbitration. He has also appeared on numerous occasions as counsel on Appeals at various levels of Ontario courts, including the Ontario Court of Appeal.

Kyle’s trial experience includes complex, precedent setting trials such as the class action trial of Davies v. Clarington. In Davies, Kyle represented the Plaintiff in a trial that lasted over two and a half years, and spanned 103 trial days. Decisions in the case have already set new precedents in regards to issues such as calling witnesses by videoconference, and the scope of participant expert evidence. Closing submissions were completed in May of 2017, with damages sought damages of $50,000,000. The decision is still pending in the Ontario courts, due to the submission of 2,000+ pages of written closing submission materials.

In acknowledgement of his extensive litigation experience, Kyle was recognized as a Certified Specialist in Civil Litigation by the Law Society of Upper Canada, in 2016 (the equivalent of the Alberta designation of Queen’s Counsel). At the time of his certification, Kyle was the youngest lawyer in Ontario to hold this designation.

In 2017, Kyle obtained his Call to the Bar in Alberta and joined the team at Parlee McLaws LLP, after moving to Calgary with his family.
