Kailun Chen



Kailun Chen loves talking to strangers and learning their stories.

As a former journalist, Kailun brings a deep sense of curiosity and compassion to her cases. She supports trade unions in the government, health care, and firefighter sectors in all kinds of grievance arbitration proceedings. Both her parents were public servants so she grew up around government jargon and learned to appreciate the power of a union. Kailun has a particular interest in disability and mental health.

Kailun attended law school at the University of Toronto after working as a radio producer and newspaper reporter and winning awards for her stories on workplace safety and human trafficking. At law school, she advocated for refugee rights as an Asper Centre for Constitutional Rights working group leader and as a caseworker at the Downtown Legal Services Clinic. She is proud to have been part of the winning Wilson Constitutional Law Moot team, and to have organized conferences on access to justice and the rule of law at Massey College. Kailun joined Goldblatt Partners after summering and articling at the firm.

Outside of work, you might catch Kailun singing karaoke, in a dance class, or talking back to podcasts.
