Kyle is a problem-solver, who has often been called on as a “fixer” for litigation files that have gone off the rails.

Prior to joining Parlee, Kyle had a busy litigation practice in Toronto, where he ran numerous trials and appeared at all levels of Ontario Court, including several appearances at the Court of Appeal for Ontario. Kyle’s trial experience includes being counsel for one of the longest civil trials in Canadian history, clocking in at 106 trial days over 2.5 years.  His expertise in litigation was officially recognized in Ontario, as he was named a Certified Specialist (C.S.) for his work in Civil Litigation. At the time of receiving this honour, which is the equivalent of Alberta’s King’s Counsel designation, Kyle was the youngest lawyer in Ontario to hold the designation.

Kyle now concentrates his practice in Alberta, as well as in Federal Court, while continuing to handle cross-provincial matters involving Ontario. His practice focusses on Intellectual Property Law, Commercial Litigation, and Insurance Litigation.

In addition to his litigation expertise, Kyle has extensive expertise in negotiation theory, including numerous published papers and speaking engagements on topics such as behavioural decision-making, cognitive biases, heuristics and non-verbal communication. Kyle leverages this knowledge in his mediation practice, where he acts as a Private Mediator to assist parties in reaching negotiated resolutions to matters through Alternative Dispute Resolution.

Whether as a litigator, negotiator or mediator, Kyle’s practice is dedicated to finding solutions to the problems of his clients when disputes occur. With a versatile set of options at his disposal, Kyle’s practice focusses on finding the right tool for the job in order to bring disputes to a resolution in a favourable and efficient manner that serves the best interests of his clients.
