McKenzie Lake Laywers - Chelsea Smith

Chelsea Smith

Through my work at the UN in Geneva and in class actions at McKenzie Lake, I have learned the importance of strength in numbers.

Prior to joining the highly experienced class actions team at McKenzie Lake, I worked at the firm as a summer student and articling student. During this time, I assisted with several class actions and developed a keen interest in class action litigation.

Through strength in numbers, class actions provide access to justice for those who might otherwise be unable to pursue their claims. I am committed to providing access to justice in both official languages. Although London is my hometown, I have also lived in Quebec (Trois-Pistoles, Alma, and Quebec City) and in France (Ornex). Living in Quebec and France allowed me to transform my passion for the French language into fluency. During law school, my passion for the French language continued and led me to pursue a Diplôme de français juridique and an LL.B. in Quebec civil law in addition to my Juris Doctor degree.

Outside of the office, I enjoy reading, volunteering, and cheering on the Western Mustangs football team. I stay active by swimming with the London Silver Dolphins masters swim team.

Please contact me about new or current class action claims.
