Practice

Kemily Ho joined Tevlin Gleadle Curtis Employment Law Strategies as an Articled Student and remained at the firm as a lawyer after her call to the Bar. She has extensive courtroom experience, having conducted matters in several levels of court in British Columbia.

Prior to her call to the bar Kemily had already run her first wrongful dismissal trial.  Now her courtroom experience is more extensive than most lawyers of her vintage.  Kemily has multiple appearances in the British Columbia Supreme Court, including as winning counsel.  In 2017, Kemily successfully overturned an arbitrator’s decision – a very rare result.

Kemily routinely acts both as lead counsel and in supportive roles in complex civil litigation, employment law, human rights, and employment standards matters and takes pride in helping clients reach their goals.  She has appeared in the British Columbia supreme Court and the Saskatchewan Court of Queen’s Bench.

In her third year, Kemily received the David Neil Hossie, QC Prize in Corporation Law. One of her most memorable experiences at law school was mooting in the 2015 National Bowman Tax Moot, and making it to the semi-finals.
